Interpreting, especially simultaneous, for various product focus groups is a very challenging exercise even for an experienced language professional.
Focus groups, though small, are dynamic and unlike a bigger conference with simultaneous interpretation, there is a very quick turn- taking taking place: participants interrupt each other, share opinions, ask marketing questions, several people may speak at the same time.
It is not a very standard situation for a simultaneous interpreter and required stamina, quick switching and an ability to convey emotional nuances. It also means that utmost attention needs to be paid to interpreter selection, you cannot chose just anyone.
