A shot in the dark

21 – 23 May 2014, Hilton Metropole, Brighton 

A shot rings out. Who’s been bumped off? Who’s the culprit? What’s the motive? And where is the evidence? The future of our industry is a mystery we want you to help us solve. This conference, for the first time, will be structured like a murder investigation.

The annual BIG Conference is unique because it is totally focused on business research and marketing issues. It enables those who share an interest in business-to-business research, both buyers and suppliers, to meet like-minded colleagues.

Keynote – The Man Who Knew Too Much

Our keynote speaker – Kevin Murray, Chair of the Good Relations Group – is a perfect fit for the bill as his own career started as a newspaper crime reporter in South Africa. Since then, however, he has carved an illustrious career in communications, and has led significant issues and crisis communications campaigns in the heat of national controversies for the chemicals, nuclear, aviation, and banking sectors, to name but a few.

He is the author of two highly acclaimed books, helping businesses understand what is the key ingredient of great leadership, in this new superspeed, super-networked era of unforgiving scrutiny.

The answer, as he will outline in this opening session, is the ability to inspire others through great communication.
