Our people, our difference

Having smart, curious people with a perspective is vital to our approach. So we encourage all of our employees to venture off the beaten path, to follow a hunch, to trailblaze a tangent that might lead to something unexpectedly valuable. Our team is an open-minded, curious bunch of conversationalists, all of them with an intuitive sense, a bit of an independent streak, and the intelligence that leads them to gather the kind of insights that’ll raise your eyebrows, as well as your standards for market research.

I’ve always been curious about the underlying reasons people do things.

Qualitative research allows a deep, personal understanding of a completely foreign reality. The process of finding out where someone is coming from paints a complex picture and pushes for critical analysis of what exists and what could be (and how we can get there).

The most adventurous thing I’ve ever done was a recent four-day, 28-mile backpacking trip near Aspen. Historically, I haven't been a particularly "outdoorsy" person, so this was hugely challenging and rewarding.

What I love about research is learning about people and what they think. Discovering the reasoning behind behavior and what motivates people to move from a plan of action to action itself.

I'm most curious about people. I'm a social person, and it has always fascinated me to hear a person's story that could be so starkly different from my own.

I explore by getting lost, which I manage to do on a regular basis. I have been told by multiple people that they would not be my partner on “Amazing Race,” because my sense of direction is so poor.

I believe qualitative research is like an onion. You keep peeling back the layers until you get to the insight you need.

I love qualitative research for the same reason I love teaching—using creative questions and questioning methods to help elicit innovative thoughts on any subject.

I explore. On foot during a long run. On skis on a good powder day. On a plane if the distance is far. With a map if I’m unfamiliar. With a good book or magazine if it’s nasty outside. Or just simply by having a conversation.

I love a great story – numbers are nice, but nothing is more compelling than hearing directly from your consumers.

Jenn Jackson

I’m always interested in learning about peoples’ stories. Everyone has their own personal experience that shape who they are and why they think they way they do. My mom used to call it being nosy, I just call it being curious!

The most adventurous thing I’ve ever done is scuba dive with bull sharks. They are responsible for more attacks on humans than any other species of shark, and have the highest testosterone levels out of any animal in the world!

I love qualitative research because it gives a face and persona to the respondents behind the data – much more than a statistic or sliver of a pie chart.
