"...because Hunches and Guesswork are not enough!"

Speciality

Huge range of b2b/industrial and b2c sectors (40+ at last count).

From nuclear decommissioning to zips, from higher education to ethnic minorities, from boiler installers to credit card and insurance companies, and from fashion to temperature-controlled packaging!

It's almost impossible to define specialisms, but if we had to they would include:  education (primary, secondary, further and higher), financial services, pharma/healthcareIT/computers, international projects (both quantitative & qualitative, in 45+ countries), market/competitor intelligence, and export/market-entry research.

Background

Positive entrepreneurial outlook. Probing, insightful, action-focused mindset.

High quality at attractive cost - not the cheapest but certainly not the most expensive - underpinned by professional, flexible, responsive client service.

Unusually broad career/experience: retail management, advertising, precision plastic mouldings, wine trade, wine tour operator...then market research (for the past 18 years) both agency and clientside, covering a huge variety of b2b and b2c sectors!

Definitely a "glass half full" sort of guy (with a "where there's a problem, there's always a solution" mentality), who is always willing to go the extra mile.

Underpinning the quality of our work, all clients benefit from our unique unconditional "no quibble" guarantee (see www.research-insight.com/menus/main.asp?PN=Guarantee).
