GRBN launches global speakers database

MEDIA RELEASE: 16 December 2019: The Global Research Business Network (GRBN) today announced the launch of the GRBN Global Speakers Database.

The database is designed to become an invaluable resource for the global market research and insights sector and serves two key purposes:

Firstly, the GRBN Global Speakers Database is a resource for event organizers in our sector, who seek experts to speak at their events, and secondly it is an opportunity for experts desiring to speak at industry events across the globe to market themselves to event organizers.

Bernd Wachter, EFAMRO President, states: “EFAMRO supports the creation of the GRBN global speaker database to help national associations source suitable speakers for their conferences and events.  We welcome any resources which help associations to be more efficient and effective in delivering their services, and hope for a database of speakers covering a broad range of languages.”

Elissa Molloy, AMSRS CEO, notes: “Having a centralised database to share industry speakers from around the globe is a great initiative. This tool would be beneficial and efficient in the review and selection of speakers for our annual conference and our professional development program in Australia. A list of respected and renowned speakers along with their presentation topics is a great way for us to ensure that we can meet the interest and professional development needs of our members.”

Urpi Torrado, ARIA Co-chair adds“The Speakers Database is an invaluable tool that will contribute to the development and strengthening of our industry. Associations will benefit with the complete information and experience from speakers worldwide. This will facilitate contacting experts in any topic needed for local and international events. This is also a way to promote talent in the market research industry and to connect all players in this field.”

The GRBN Global Speakers Database can be accessed via this link: We recommend that event organizers bookmark this page since new speakers will be regularly added to the database.

GRBN would like to thank the experts, who agreed to be the first speakers to be added to the database, and we look forward to welcoming many more experts to the database as we move into 2020.
