Just back from Media Research Group conference and awards dinner in Monte Carlo. it was great fun, really good content and the icing on the cake was our client, Thinkbox, picking up 3 awards – for Media Research Initiative, Trade Body Research and (appropriately for famous F1 setting) the Grand Prix. This was all down to the Screen Life work that COG had done for them and we are so chuffed to be a part of it.
Been looking at the work Hunch are doing with the Teach Hunch About You project. How cat or dog owners have different TV show tastes – we have a dog and like House so that fits….and how frequency of flying fits with aisle vs window preference – again we fly a lot and swear by the aisle so that fits too.
Have a look at the blog and try the survey
PHD worked with Global Radio to try out the Neuro-Evaluation approach on frozen food firm McCain’s recent ‘Family of the Month’ promotion, which ran on the Capital and Heart station networks.
They used COG’s IRT implicit test, and the research showed strong gains post-campaign for the ‘family-oriented’ attribute in particular. Overall, emotional connections showed “significant positive movement”, PHD said.

Just off to a meeting about using the original IAT implicit test approach for a client. It’s a great test for uncovering entrenched or hard to acknowledge attitudes, but limited to one issue and one set of values at a time – not ideal for brand tracking.
This time round it makes perfect sense for tracking changes in attitudes we would prefer not to acknowledge. More on this soon if it goes ahead – meanwhile you can see the original work at https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/
