Ginny Valentine Awards


Recognizing Bravery in Market Research

 
 

Ginny's Story

From the 1980s until her passing in 2010, Virginia "Ginny" Valentine was an internationally-recognized pioneer of semiotics. She was one of the first to bring semiotics to market research in the UK. She won many awards for her work and set up Semiotics Solutions to provide training and technical development to others. 

Though Ginny was successful in her mission, it was not for lack of obstacles. Rather it was her strength and bravery to go against the grain that was so remarkable. Greg Rowlands, an original team member of Semiotics Solutions once put it like this: "Ginny was such an incandescent combination of drive, intellect and flamboyance...Semiotics was a challenging sell back in the early 90s, and without Ginny’s determination and sheer chutzpah it would have remained a one-off commercial anomaly."

Ginny was also an avid supporters of others. She touched the lives of so many who remember her generosity of spirit and her words of encouragement. To honor her memory, Ginny's family thought it only fitting to continue her legacy of bravery and recognition in research. In 2012, in partnership with the Research Liberation Front, The Ginny Valentine Badge of Courage Awards were born.
