Catch us at the MRS day devoted to discussing and debating social media behaviours and trends on February 8, 2018...
Our head of insights and innovation, Dr Matilda Andersson, will be presenting at the event; furthering our recent agelessness work and looking at the role of social media in forging cross-generational communication.
