Jane Oakley - insight from Jane Oakley


Services

I am a well-respected qualitative research specialist, previously Co-Owner and Director at Crucible Research, with a wealth of experience and a proven record in delivering illuminating and actionable insight for blue-chip clients in the UK and internationally via:

  • Creating sensitive, probing, empathetic, intelligent and engaging conversations with consumers, customers and decision makers of all types to  identify the influences on their attitudes, choices and behaviour
     
  • Using a wide range of individual, group, face-to face and remote approaches and techniques
     
  • Producing clear, concise and relevant presentations of key findings and implications that cut through all the ‘data’
     
  • Helping to shape successful tactics and strategies for better customer relationships and business growth

I collaborate with other researchers, field agencies and studios, as well as client companies, managing all aspects of a project or supporting on specific parts of a package, such as moderating (which I particularly enjoy) and reporting.
