    About This Role:

    Forrester is seeking a uniquely qualified individual for the position of Advisor for its Analyst Relations (AR) Council within the Forrester Leadership Boards. Forrester Leadership Boards are exclusive peer groups for exchanging best and next practices to win in a disruptive marketplace. We enable leaders to:


    • Prepare for rapid change. Our powerful networks help leaders anticipate the impact that technology change will have on their customers and business.
    • Increase confidence in their decisions. Dedicated advisors connect them one-on-one with peers who share their experience.
    • Increase their effectiveness. Exclusive content equips them to improve their programs and results.


    The AR Council is a collaborative program of senior analyst relations professionals who gather throughout the year to discuss their analyst relations priorities, challenges, and solutions. In a series of face-to-face and virtual meetings, members share approaches to topics such as building an AR program that drives business value, supporting sales, measuring analyst relations results, educating internal stakeholders, leveraging established best practices and solutions to maximize analyst influence, organizing global teams, and other critical priorities. Connecting with peers in a facilitated environment allows members to make quick and informed decisions regarding their analyst relations priorities, increasing both company and personal success.


    • Catalyze a community of select analyst relations professionals through one-on-one meetings, group peer exchanges, and various written communications.
    • Cultivate expertise in continuously evolving analyst relations best practices to challenge member thinking.
    • Design an engagement strategy around member needs.
    • Create content to be used for facilitating virtual and in-person member and prospect events.
    • Exhibit a strong, credible, engaging presence.
    • Contribute to and develop content in a written format to distribute to members. Examples include meeting summaries, benchmarking surveys, reports, and case studies.
    • Support the planning, execution, and delivery of in-person and virtual events — from small group peer exchange calls to councilwide, in-person meetings.
    • Partner with Forrester’s sales channel regarding new members and renewing members. Proactively suggest new business and renewal strategies and tactics.
    • Foster strong, collaborative relationships with the internal Forrester ecosystem, including our partners in sales, research, events, and consulting.
