As most of you may know, the role of the ESOMAR Council is to give strategic direction, ensure the association’s good governance, and provide effective service to its members. With the reach of our community having grown to 35,000 professionals around the world – through 5000 individual and 500+ corporate members worldwide – combined with a robust financial status, I think we can all agree that when looking back over the last 70 years of ESOMAR, preceding Councils have been very successful in their mission! In brief, the association today is in a very good shape.

So, I cancelled some business meetings and met marketing students from one of the leading Universities of Ukraine – Kyiv National University of Trade and Economics.

Over the weekend the New York Times and Observer newspapers reported that data mining and analysis company Cambridge Analytica, a company that had been employed with considerable success by Donald Trump in the 2016 US presidential campaign, had illegally harvested 50 million Facebook profiles in order to build a powerful software program to predict and influence choices at the ballot box. The Observer reports that data was collected via a digital app on the Facebook platform where hundreds of thousands of users were paid to take a personality test and agreed to have their data collected for academic use. However, the app also collected the information of the test-takers’ Facebook friends.
