Services for clients

  • The fusion of 15 years of integrated agency experience to Client Services Director level; eight months marketing consultancy with NatWest MarComms; first class training in psychology and running BatchelorClark research since 2006, means that we are perfectly suited to working with discerning and action-oriented clients.
  • Clients who want more strategic qualitative research and not just a bog-standard solution. Clients who want research they can use, not interesting research that just sits, gathering dust, on the shelf.
  • Our previous experience means that we have had many years working with marketing clients. Indeed, we've even worked as a client with NatWest Marcomms, so we understand the different dynamics and challenges that working client side brings.
  • This means we can be an extension to your team. We speak your language and can help with strategic thinking and planning as well as delivering usable insights that you can share, with confidence, amongst your own teams and use, with confidence, to make brand decisions.
  • We engender high levels of client loyalty and repeat business. Many of our clients have worked with us over many projects (e.g. ACEVO) and through many different roles at different client companies (eg from Mylotto to AltanaWealth).
  • We are trusted to deliver the highest level of strategic qualitative brand research and give our clients confidence in the insights we provide.
  • Working with you, we will develop the research proposal to make sure it will achieve your objectives. We also make sure we can hit your budgets and timing.
  • We manage all aspects of recruitment, fieldwork and moderation and present directly to you and/or your teams at the end of the project. You have one senior point of contact throughout who will be responsible for all aspects of the project.
