The AESC Executive Research Workshop Series is open to researchers and associates of any experience level. The workshops are ideal for:

  • Researchers new to the profession looking to enhance their onboarding with relevant and timely discussions surrounding the hottest topics in the executive research field.
  • Associates interested in augmenting their toolkits with the latest methodologies and technologies available to streamline their work.
  • Experienced research professionals seeking to differentiate their work and the status of their firms by implementing the latest best practices to counter industry trends.

What is the time commitment?

Each workshop will last 90 minutes. Designed with the busy executive research professional in mind, these workshops are intended to be short, but impactful.

I see that you offer multiple times for each workshop. Can I attend multiple sessions? 

No. Participants can attend the workshop that best fits their schedule and time zone but may only attend one session with a standard registration. A bundle is recommended for participants who wish to attend to attend the entire workshop series. 

I've already earned AESC's Certificate in Executive Research (CER). How are the workshops different from CER?     

The AESC Certificate in Executive Research (CER) is a different program from the Executive Research Workshop Series. CER provides a comprehensive foundation to the executive search profession and executive research, while the workshops provide advanced training on the latest topics and trends facing executive researchers today. We recommend that executive research professionals take CER and enroll in these workshops for a well-rounded professional development approach.

Can I receive a discount for enrolling multiple members from my firm?

Group rates will be given for firms looking to enroll four or more attendees. Connect with our education team today to learn more about group rates at education@aesc.org

Are the sessions recorded?  

These sessions will not be recorded. If you are unable to attend the session scheduled for your region, you may be able to attend one of the other sessions. Contact the Education Team at education@aesc.org to determine if there is an alternative session that would be appropriate for your time zone.
