About Me

A highly experienced and qualified researcher and writer, with a diverse and strong track record that spans more than three decades. I was formerly employed in senior research roles in UK government departments, with responsibility for developing and implementing large-scale research programs. While living in South East Asia for more than ten years I built a highly successful consulting business providing research and writing services for corporate and non-profit sector organizations around the world, and quickly gained a reputation for high quality services that contribute significant value to the work of clients. Now based in the UK but continuing to work internationally, my main services include quantitative and qualitative research design and implementation; methods consulting; online business research; producing evidence-based white papers, web content and academic journal articles, and providing high quality associate support to research organizations.
