How does he know all this?
As the founder and director of Heartbeat Trends, and more recently The Korn Group, Neer has conducted over 100 large scale studies on Australian attitudes and trends. He treats his studies like pieces of a puzzle, adding five new studies each year, filling in gaps in knowledge and examining emerging trends. He films all his focus groups and interviews thus bringing his presentations to life by allowing people to speak for themselves.
How does it work?
Following a briefing or outline of the event, Neer goes through his library of studies on Australian attitudes and selects the most relevant insights and findings for the audience. He provides a presentation outline for amendment and commentary. The full presentation with video material is then prepared.
