Episode 22 of the IMA's Transforming Insight podcast is now available. In this extended episode, James talks to Liz Boffey, Director of Insight at Sainsbury’s.
Liz talks about how she now sees herself as an end–to–end Insight leader, having experienced all different aspects of Insight throughout her career. Her roles span from market research, category management, consumer insight, shopper insight, agency-side and leadership roles.
This breadth of experience strengthened her ability to look at things more holistically, rather than looking at Insight in an organisation through one lens. It gave her the ability to join it all up in a powerful way, to be an important voice in organisations.
Throughout her career, Liz has cleverly used Insight and data analysis in a multitude of ways to achieve success at Disney, PepsiCo, Birds Eye, Nestle and Sainsbury’s.
With her current role at Sainsbury’s, we hear about Liz’s goals for her Insight team going forward.
This is episode 22 of the Transforming Insight podcast.
