Be in with a chance
To showcase your talent
Increasingly, it’s important to give team members an opportunity to work on projects they are passionate about and find personally fulfilling – RGT provided a fantastic avenue for some of our young researchers to do just that. At the same time, the competition provided a wonderful learning opportunity from both a research skills and stakeholder engagement perspective. An added bonus of having team members participate was the broader cultural impact - it was really heartening to see the whole team get behind our entrants.

Are you a young researcher wanting to make a difference in the world?
Don’t miss your chance to enter the Research Got Talent Competition in Australia!
ESOMAR’s Research Got Talent Initiative started in HK and India and is now being implemented around the world.
ADIA is pleased to be part of this global initiative which provides the opportunity to recognise and celebrate young researchers.
The aim is to invite, welcome and include young researchers to highlight and showcase the positive impact of research.
“Research Got Talent has been a highlight of my career in market research – reinforcing that this is my industry, and these are my people. It was a privilege to work with spur:org and participants from across Australia to bring important issues into focus. I have continued being involved with the competition as a committee member, judge and speaker in 2021 – and plan to do this again in 2022. RGT has also opened up a number of opportunities for me to be more involved and networked within the industry broadly – something that has been invaluable in my career so far.”
