The only business-building workshop developed specifically for small-to-mid-sized firms in the Market Research industry.

To no one’s surprise… our industry is becoming more competitive and more commoditized every day – new technology, new players, DIY tools, consolidation, etc. It’s getting increasingly difficult to grow your business and maintain a competitive advantage. Instant Impact can help.

Our presenters draw on over 20 years of combined experience in the MR industry to deliver real-world marketing & sales tools that can help you grow your business.

And here’s the difference… at the end of most workshops, participants go back to the office and try to put the theories they just learned into practice. It rarely works. Attendees at Instant Impact don’t leave with ideas and theories… they leave with the proven, real-world tools, tips and techniques to put to use right away. To start growing revenue the very next day! In fact, we built this unique program from the ground up with that singular goal in mind!

Presented by Steve Henke and Paul Kirch – two of the MR industry’s most experienced and respected business growth experts – Instant Impact is about two things… Action and Results.
