Dan Young - Shed Research Consulting


We offer five core services. We help you:

  2. Dig beyond the obvious in our qualitative research by knowing the difference between what people say in research and what they do
  3. Size your markets in our quantitative research by assessing the appeal of products or measuring what their customers think
  4. Understand your valued clients by helping agencies improve the service they offer their clients
  5. Improve your skills through hands-on, interactive training
