Luminate monthly mailer (free)

Every month we shine a light on a particular subject and pull together a summary of all the research and data we can find, adding a layer of interpretation and suggesting what the implications are for brands, businesses and organisations.

We do this for free and find it a very popular way for us to help you understand what we can offer you in terms of value-through-research.

As a starting point, we very much recommend you sign up to receive the mailing, which of course you are free to unsubscribe to whenever you wish. And if you’d like to suggest a topic for future consideration, we’d love to hear from you. Use our contact form to suggest a topic.

He designed the research to exactly fit our needs and delivered it very well, within budget and on time. Most importantly he really went the extra mile to ensure the outcomes were presented well and told a compelling story that has made a real difference to our how we will drive forward our strategy for the coming year.  His presentation was very well received by our key funders and the company Board and I look forward to hopefully working with him again in the future.

Associates

While Gideon oversees all project work, there are very often times when you need a team of people or an individual with a particular skill or set of experiences. For this very reason, we hand-pick the right people for you from a wide network of associate consultants who:

  • Operate independently
  • Are experts in their field
  • Are amazing at what they do
  • Are fantastic to work with

This allows the business to scale up and take on large scale projects, or provide specialist services with genuine experts.
