WHEN WORKING WITH CLIENTS, WHAT IS SOMETHING THAT SEEMS TO SURPRISE THEM WHEN CONDUCTING RESEARCH?

BECAUSE WE ARE OFTEN IN THE BUSINESS OF TRYING TO VALIDATE AN IDEA OR CONCEPT FOR CLIENTS, WE DON’T HAVE MANY OCCASIONS TO SURPRISE THEM. THE BEST REWARD AS A RESEARCHER IS TO BE ABLE TO SHARE SOMETHING NEW AND UNEXPECTED BASED ON THE RESEARCH.
