Priscilla and Sondra Brown Ask The Tough Questions

In this episode, CEO and Momma Bird Priscilla McKinney talks with President and Founder of Market Dynamics Research Group Sondra Brown. In addition to discussing how to uncover rich insights for companies, the importance of events like CRC (Corporate Researcher’s Conference), and coffee, they also talk about a major shift that MDRG initiated in 2018 and 2019. That change helped refocus the direction of the company - looking closely at deliverables, staff, methodologies and more - it allowed them to continue innovating in the market research mission. 

Sondra tells some of the takeaways from her CRC presentation on French Market Coffee, the importance of empathy in MR, and the best and worst advice she’s ever received.
