Event description

Description

**REGISTRATION WILL OPEN AT 12:01 AM ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10th. THIS TREK IS OPEN TO STANFORD STUDENTS ONLY. SPACE IS LIMITED**

Join us on Friday, January 12th at 12:30 PM as we trek up to San Francisco to tour Forrester, a technology and market research company that helps companies understand the impact of new technologies on their business. Forrester is considered one of the most influential research and advisory firms in the world, using proprietary research, data, custom consulting, exclusive executive peer groups, and events to help its clients.

On this Trek, you will:

  1. Meet Forrester's Senior Vice President who is responsible for Forrester's research organization and research product. Her team consists of analysts that write the research and work closely with clients.
  2. Tour Forrester's San Francisco office.
  3. Participate in an activity that will give you a sense of what it's like to work as an analyst with Forrester. Potential topic: brainstorm the impact of autonomous cars in the next 5, 10, and 20 years -- from business models to infrastructure (e.g. will we need fewer roads?)

You will enjoy this Trek if you:

  • Have a sense of curiosity of why people do what they do and what they'll likely do next.
  • Love doing research and don't like to take things at face value
  • Are interested in marketing, research, or psychology.
