“I’ve been so very fortunate to have been working in the MR industry for almost 35 years, says Bob, i-view London’s co-owner and Managing Partner.     “ In 2010, I wanted to find a direct way to give back to our industry – one that would help support those in difficult times. After speaking with Linda Henshall, the MRBA was the obvious choice.  It’s so important we have a benevolent association that reminds and guides us to support those who would really appreciate our support to make life easier.

“An immediate way for me to support the MRBA was to offer items for the MRBA Auction, from tickets to the Research Club Summer party to VIP tickets to International Cricket matches at the Oval, where I am a Trustee on the Surrey Cricket Foundation Charity. I’m always keen to purchase items in the MRBA Auction from ESOMAR Congress to sporting event tickets. In discussion with the MRBA team, I’ve worked with colleagues to raise funds through donations at  some Research Club networking events, the annual Cricket event and also donations from i-view London clients during MRBA Week.

“The MRBA has helped more than thousand researchers in need & given away more than £1million in loans and grants over the past 40 years. We can all do something, even if once a year.  I’d encourage everyone to support the MRBA by becoming a Friend, a Corporate Friend or a Corporate Patron. It really is rewarding, and all the info is on the MRBA website.”
