Relationships –I’ll work with you on a one off project, but I hope you’ll see the benefits of long term partnership and come back for more insight. I enjoy building relationships, but as I say if long term isn’t what you are looking for, that’s ok too!
Integrity – In the age of “fake news” everything we do is under scrutiny, as a member of the Market Research Society I adhere to their Code of Conduct which ensures all research is conducted and reported in an appropriate manner.
Reliability – I will deliver quality data, on time, every time. I’m organised to within an inch of my life, I don’t forget deadlines or conversations. You can count on me.
Simplicity – I am a numbers geek, I work with a lot of data, lots of numbers, lots of spreadsheets. I analyse and translate those numbers into meaningful information and will report in plain English, giving you a clear, actionable plan.
Objectivity – I always look at both sides of the story in a calm and rational way. Sometimes research doesn’t give us answers we want to hear, but it will always give us answers that we can turn into actions.
Fun – life is too short to not have fun at work. I believe you can have fun while still delivering exceptional work.
I know, I know – this is a huge buzz word at the moment. But I’ve been harping on about this for years. Small changes will have big impact, if lots of people make lots of small changes then the impact will be huge. You CAN make a difference.
I love working with people who think like me, those who believe that people and the planet are of equal importance to profit. We need to do all we can to ensure we protect our planet and people.
