Advice: for any Insight leader, whether you are new to your role or an experienced director wanting to transform a well-established Insight team

Benchmarking: starting with a free survey to help you understand how your Insight team compares to 150+ others on 32 key aspects of Insight management

Publishing: free 5 Minute Insight emails to challenge your thinking, and an online library of 10-page Insight leader guides to help our members

Training: a comprehensive range of workshops, now including Storytelling, Visual communication, Commercial thinking, and Consultancy skills for Insight teams.

Forums: the IMA's Insight Forum has met in London 60 times over the last 15 years, providing a safe space for the Insight leaders from organisations like McDonalds, Tesco, ebay, Nestle, Aviva, Whitbread and Gymshark to share challenges and hear the IMA's latest thinking. We have also recently launched a new Insight forum in Manchester. The next forum meetings are on 10th June 2020 (London) and 2nd July 2020 (Manchester) on the topic of 'challenges of Insight leadership'.

 

We offer a range of membership options to suit different organisations. If you would like to find out more about how the IMA can help you to transform your Insight team, click here.

We all know that stories are powerful, probably the most widely used and effective communication tool in human history. They have helped whole societies to develop a narrative around how they came to exist and what they are striving to achieve.

If our organisations are to succeed, they need joined-up insights. The IMA's MADE in Insight model underpins the creation of a joined-up story about how consumers in our market become customers of our organisation and create value for it.
