Breakfast Networking: From ugly duckling to beautiful swan

Hauser Forum, 3 Charles Babbage Road, CB3 0GT

The Internet has made it easier and quicker than ever before to collect and participate in user feedback.

But even today, most surveys focus on collecting scoring questions on a 0-10 scale, with only a cursory open-ended question "Any other comments?” thrown in at the end. This is because open questions are seen as hard-to-analyse or compare, time-consuming to work with and difficult to apply in the workplace. 

It doesn’t have to be this way!


Join this (non-technical!) event to:

learn how artificial intelligence (AI) is turning ‘ugly' unstructured data into a wealth of insightful information, at a level of detail and complexity that simply wasn't possible in the past (at any medium-to-large scale)

see case-studies of how 'Comments Box’ analysis can have practical applications with tangible business-case benefits 

understand ‘tips and traps’ of Comments analysis that you can apply tomorrow in your workplace 

get ideas for how text and emotion analytics can support your organisation - including examples from patient experience and employee engagement
