BDRC Continental, the UK’s largest independent research consultancy, has handed over more than £100,000 during the last ten years to events industry charity Meeting Needs.

The money has been raised through the promotion of BDRC’s feedback service, VenueVerdict, where every completed response from customers triggers a donation of 50p to Meeting Needs.

Jennifer Jenkins, chair of Meeting Needs, acknowledged BDRC’s contribution at a charity partner event.

She said: “BDRC's commitment to Meeting Needs is second to none and we are very grateful indeed for the company's continued generosity. Their contributions fund important projects that change many lives for the better."

Dr Cris Tarrant, chief executive of BDRC Group, said: “We are delighted to support Meeting Needs. The whole team is so proud to be part of this initiative and achieve this incredible milestone that really does make a difference to so many worthwhile causes around the world. 

“I would urge everyone involved in the events industry to support Meeting Needs as their charity partner of choice and like us, feel fortunate that our donations can touch so many lives.” 

VenueVerdict is an independent customer feedback and accreditation programme used by meeting and event venues to drive improvements in client experience. Based around an online survey, it allows properties to benchmark their ratings against their competitors.
