With 50+ years of experience between us, I, with my business partner Karin, are New Zealand’s most experienced qualitative and quantitative  researchers.

We have extensive Australiasian experience with online and face to face research. If we can’t help you we usually know who can.

We have teamed up with just about every industry there is and we have talked to people from the end consumer up to C-level executives or medical specialists (and everyone in between). Please have a look at our website for more information about clients and industries we have worked with:

We are both members of the Research Association New Zealand (RANZ).


Robyn has a BSc (HONS) in Biology and Anthropology from the University of Toronto (Canada), both of which underline her interest in human behaviour, healthcare, and all things anthropological. Robyn enjoys the challenges that each new project brings as well as delivering usable and insightful research results to all her clients.​
