Drawing on a mix of my research, evaluation and coaching skills I provide consultancy support to small/medium sized charities, social enterprises and purposeful businesses focusing on:
I also work with a network of research professionals designing and delivering research and evaluation projects.
Having begun my career in hospitality management roles, my passion for customer service and insights quickly led to a long and varied career in the corporate market research world.
Engaging with people from the boardroom to the ‘coal face’, and operations to HR, gave me a deep understanding of the commercial, third and public sectors.
As a Commercial Director at GfK (now part of Ipsos MORI) I adopted a coaching management style and completed a MA in Coaching and Mentoring Practice. Working with my own coach, I identified that I was motivated to work in a more values-based way and set up Research Oxford, a purpose-led business, in 2011. I have been a long-standing member of the Market Research Society and am a current member of the ICG (Expert Independent Researchers).
Joining ROBIN (Responsible Oxfordshire Business Involvement Network) was a turning point. It enabled me to meet like-minded individuals, from all sectors, who were putting people before profit and striving for positive change.
As a result I began to use my research, evaluation and coaching skills to help individuals and organisations access evidence-based insights to understand and demonstrate their impact and inform positive change.
