Together we’ll choose the most appropriate methodology according to the objectives of your brief, the timings and your budget.

I offer a range of data gathering techniques.


The methodology of choice for many – an online survey can be a quick and efficient way to gather your data. I have access to a number of tools which offer a comprehensive online survey solution.


Telephone research is conducted by a team of specialist researchers, I don’t employ CATI preferring to let interviews take a more natural pace, which in my opinion allows better engagement with respondents.


Whether it’s a questionnaire posted to members of a club or handed out at an event, or an insert in a magazine, paper-based research still has its place – in fact it’s sometimes seen as a novelty and so response rates are incredible.

Face to face

Face-to-face research takes place in a number of locations: in street, in home, in halls, at your premises, or at an event. Working with our associates I have access to interviewers based all over the UK.
