Priscilla and Kris Hull Wield the Double-Edged Sword of Specialization

Across the market research space, specialization is becoming an increasingly sought-after quality - but it can also create an unintended silo effect. In this episode, CEO and Momma Bird Priscilla McKinney talks with SVP and Senior Client Officer of Ipsos, Kris Hull about striking a balance between deep expertise and a broader lens to uncover meaningful insights. Hull discusses the importance of listening and understanding client needs, and shares a mind-shift he calls “suspend your agenda,” that’s helpful in combatting myopic research.
