Kim is a Research Associate for the business, leading projects to support Executives through periods of change & growth, who need bespoke, current and relevant information so they can make informed decisions.
Kim's skill lies in unlocking business problems to then create an appropriate and value adding solution - whether that be through commercial & market intelligence, engaging with informed respondents to garner sector insight, or by building an up to date and accurate picture of a certain market.
Kim gets beneath the surface of what is actually happening out there, rather than what we all think is happening; the difference is often stark.
Her expertise lies in Research and Problem Solving, especially within the Banking, Consumer, Social Enterprise, Recruitment and Education sectors.
