ESOMAR interviews Anne-Sophie Damelincourt, ESOMAR Council Member 2015-2016; 2017-2018
What motivated you to run for ESOMAR Council?
I have been an active ESOMAR member for 10 years and ESOMAR has always been a great support to develop my international network and also from a content perspective.
More recently given the evolving and very challenging landscape that our Industry and Profession were facing, running for ESOMAR Council in 2015 was a fantastic opportunity to share my vision and thoughts helping our Community to move forward from “the inside”. At the end of my first term, which has been an excited and rich experience (but so short as well!), I decided to run for a second term in order to continue the very ambitious strategy we had implemented.
What was the most pleasant surprise you got, from being on Council?
I got many pleasant surprises! We have worked with a highly motivated and bright Council team as well as ESOMAR staff, Representatives and local Associations to solve some big challenges and to make things happen (the New Code, new audiences with Young/Buyers/Data & Analytics players, Esomar+ / GDPR, …). Beyond, this experience has also been such a rich human story with diversity and respect as watchwords.
Would you recommend it and why?
I do, of course, I think that each of us as an ESOMAR Member and as an Insight & Analytics actor can play an active role in our Community to promote, to support and to preserve our Industry and our Values.
How would you address people thinking of running for ESOMAR Council?
The key things to me are motivation and engagement. So, if you are motivated and engaged to help ESOMAR, our Members and our Industry being the Leading Global Voice of the Data, Research & Insights Community, please send your application before September 17th 2018 to be part of adventure!
