Australian Global Winner announced

ADIA is delighted to announce that the winners of this year’s ESOMAR Global Research Got Talent (RGT) 2022 Award are Marissa Tsioutsis and Roger Kong from Fiftyfive5 taking out the top honours against finalist teams from Russia, India, Argentina, Peru and Canada.

Research Got Talent is the annual competition run by ESOMAR in partnership with regional associations around the world. The competition is a showcase for the next generation of researchers, focusing on their skills and their ability to support the important work of local charities and NGOs by using market research and insights to overcome pressing social issues. The Australian Data and Insights Association (ADIA) hosts the Australian competition.  

Kong and Tsioutsis’s entry Supporting the Vision to Free Australia from Youth Homelessness was produced in association with For Change Co. For Change Co. is a social enterprise that provide tools to empower young people to create their own pathway out of homelessness.

Kong and Tsioutsis said, “We want to start by saying thank you to For Change Co. for making any of this possible. The vision and work For Change Co. do for youth homelessness in Australia is incredible and something we want to continue supporting and encourage everyone to support. We also want to thank ESOMAR, ADIA, Fiftyfive5 and everyone that has been on this journey with us. 

“We feel so incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to challenge ourselves and see the impact our research is having already with For Change Co., driving awareness and encouraging the community to support their cause. We also hope that the research insights offer inspiration for social enterprises globally, helping them to utilise similar strategies to unlock additional funding to deliver more social good.
