Research provides a deeper understanding of your industry, your customers and your competitors. Our research work will help you to develop custom research programs to support business objectives and integrate all online and offline sources for complex and detailed analysis.

We have undertaken research projects for a broad range of clients including leading FTSE100 companies, global pharmaceutical companies, business organisations including the Federation of Small Businesses and Cardiff Business Partnership, charities such as the Kidney Wales Foundation and broad range of other private, voluntary and civic organisations.

One of our particular specialisms is in political audit, where we examine the perceptions of politicians and opinion formers on organisations and issues. We have undertaken this sort of research for bodies including the Wales Tobacco Control Alliance, British Waterways, Tenovus and the British Association of Social Workers.

Within our research portfolio is also our expertise in helping clients respond to consultations issued by various Governments or Committees in Cardiff and Westminster. Because we track policy reviews we can help make evidence more pertinent or impactful, advising on maximising impact and ensuring your messages are well supported and consistent. And we are able to tailor such services to the level of detail or the amount of investment available.

Our research team is led by Daran Hill one of Wales’ leading policy experts; Roy J. Thomas who advises major corporations undertaking projects in the public and private sectors in Wales; and Alun Gruffudd who leads our policy and information team. They are joined in turn by leading consultants and experts from leading academic institutions, business and the world of politics to deliver bespoke, strategic, cost effective research solutions.
