Emotional Intelligence. It's time to get excited!

Shopping for a book shouldn’t really be a stressful experience. When my son was a few weeks old I went to a bookshop on my local high street. Suddenly the cosy store with its studious atmosphere and hushed tones, that had once felt relaxing, made me anxious given my son’s love of screaming. So for a few months I stuck to shops where I felt comfortable and that I perceived as child-friendly.

Think you can spot a vegan? Think again.

Vegans. Hippies. Nothing in common with me, right? That’s how I used to perceive a person who does not eat or use animal products.

Fast forward to 2017 and the results of a new study published by Vegan Life Magazine and The Vegan Society show that Veganism is booming. Veganism has increased by 350% in the last ten years in the UK, with 542,000 vegans in the UK alone.

Making sure opinions matter

It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that opinions form the basis for almost all forms of market research, and without them we wouldn’t be able to obtain the key consumer insights that we do for our clients. We should therefore be treating the voice of these opinions as an invaluable asset by researchers, to ensure they are as insightful and representative as possible.

Changing energy suppliers really can save you time and money!

We’d just bought our first home. After nearly 6 months of trawling through Rightmove, organising viewings, filling out endless paperwork, a gazumping and then getting chucked out of our rented flat as the Estate Agent failed to sign a vital piece of paperwork (that’s a story for another time) the last thing we wanted to do was faff around with finding a new energy supplier.

Online outlets are winning the battle against traditional broadcasters but not yet the war

There is a shift occurring. Put a stethoscope to your TV screen, your radio and your thumb-worn print magazines. They need help. Because attitudes towards traditional media channels and the brands that lead them have changed. Consumers’ lifestyles have changed. They want everything and they want it now, something we delved into in our recent Audiences Unbound study.

Who's lovin' you online?

Okay so the title may be slightly misleading. This isn’t about Tinder (and it has even less to do with a well-known Jackson 5 song).

I recently attended &more, a MRS conference for young researchers.

Why we shouldn't underestimate the power of qual

Sat opposite my husband and his sister in a restaurant. They both order tea. It arrives. Tea bag wrapped in paper. Hot water in a pot. A cup and saucer to go with it.

He places the teabag inside the pot and leaves it to stew. She places hers inside the cup and pours the hot water over it.

I witnessed how 2 people, from the same family, approached this in a completely different way to one another.
