I have been researching for employers and clients almost since the day I left school. If you need to know something, I produce desk research, using relevant and reliable sources, mostly but not exclusively on the internet. I collate information on an informal basis to enable you to make a decision, or can produce a more formal report or presentation, whatever the purpose you have in mind. And I love it.
As well as fact-finding and seeking existing research, I also carry out research with your target audience (e.g. by interviews, focus groups, questionnaires and surveys). I have produced original academic research to post-graduate level within communications, and have learnt a thing or two along the way. If a project is beyond my scope, I am able to find and brief a suitable organisation on your behalf.
