MEDIA RELEASE: April 19 2021: Leading strategic insights consultancy Nature is proud to have received four nominations as finalists in the prestigious 2020-21 The Research Society Australia awards, due to be presented on Thursday, 6 May.
The nominations add to Nature’s growing industry accolades, including being named B&T magazine’s Research Agency of the Year twice (in 2018 and 2020).
Two of Nature’s rising stars, Todd Cope and Amelia Norton, are finalists in the Young Researcher of the Year category, while Nature is a finalist in the Research Effectiveness Award for Technology and Innovation category and a finalist in the Research Organisation of the Year category.
Nature’s Managing Partner, Chris Crook, said: “We are delighted to see peer recognition for the output of the business over the past year. The nominations are truly a testament to the achievements of our team, our business and our work across the industry, as well as with community and social causes.
“We’re particularly happy with the achievements of our two Young Researcher of the Year finalist nominations. Amelia and Todd have had fantastic journeys at Nature and made a real difference to our clients, team and our evolving culture, so we are so pleased for them and fully endorse The Research Society’s decision to select them as finalists. Our entire team grew personally and professionally, individually and collectively, through the challenges of 2020, and these two young researchers have really led the way in so much of what we stand for.
“We’re obviously delighted to have been shortlisted for Agency of the Year. That’s one for our team who have worked tirelessly over the past year to make our agency the strongest it’s ever been,” he said.
“Our hard work using virtual reality to enhance and radically evolve choice modelling has seen us make the final of the Research Effectiveness Award for Technology and Innovation category, which is amazing.
“The work we have done here has helped get us a lot closer to the consumer truth, which is really our passion as consumer insights professionals, and that’s so important for all of our clients today who are trying to make critical business decisions in finite resourcing environments. Being a finalist in this category speaks to our reputation as an industry leader in innovation so we’re wrapped to be here.”
