The course will benefit people who are running/using a panel or community, in the process of setting one up, or are thinking about doing so.

We’ll focus primarily on case studies from the UK market (but will have some international case studies to share if requested) and will cover primarily client-based panels, both run internally and through 3rd parties (as opposed to access panels).
