We have developed a detailed online search method involving key words, file type, region, date and source, enabling us to drill down quickly and accurately to key information. We are also very familiar with the main sources and expert bodies for our sector specialisms.

Our international policy analysis work and associated think pieces have helped clients to position themselves as thought leaders by providing them (a) with an evidence base and (b) with clear analysis and presentation of complex issues.

We are experienced in data and forecasting, and using international datasets to drill down to the issues that our clients need to understand. Our surveys are mainly delivered online or by telephone; we have delivered surveys of up to 2,000 respondents and analysed datasets of up to 300,000.

We run interviews and focus groups on various topics. Services include stakeholder mapping, recruitment, discussion guide design, facilitation of focus groups and delivery of interviews, and analysis. Our key strength here is building good relationships with respondents.
