The peak body in Australia for professional market and social research, the Australian Market and Social Research Society (AMSRS), are responsible for the Research Effectiveness Awards which recognise excellence in market and social research, making a difference to business performance and social policy planning. They also award excellence in research papers at their national conference.
In 2010/11, D&M Research won four awards which included three from the Australian Market and Social Research Society (AMSRS) and one from The Executive Connection. The AMSRS awards included runner up in Research Effectiveness in the category of Commercial Effectiveness; The Best Presentation Award as voted by the Judges at the National Conference, and The Peoples Choice Award as voted by conference candidates - also for best Presentation. The CEO of the year award was bestowed on our Principal Derek Jones for implementing his strategies that guided D&M through the GFC.
