Introducing the Research Clinic

Finding answers isn't always easy. This is where the Research Clinic can help.

Affordable, accessible, effective help. Making research simple so that you can make a difference.

We all have questions that need answering before deciding on the next steps to take. That’s research and I make this process simple and straightforward. 

I help you and your team develop your understanding, skills and confidence to find the information you need.  

Through training, support and action I provide you with the knowledge and practical skills you need to ask more effective questions and, through collating and analysing information, find the insights and evidence to support your next steps.

To take the next step, book a consultation, give me a call or drop me a line.

I make research simple so you can make a difference.

The Trust Board had been grappling with a problem that needed a solution, for some time!  Rob was able to guide our thoughts, conversations and deliberations in a speedy and efficient manner.  What had previously taken hours and hours of deliberation, was done and dusted in an hour!

CEO, The Staffordshire Schools Academy Trust
One of Rob's great strengths is to home in on what's important to you. He demystifes the science, increases confidence and builds capacity within organisations to ask the right questions that provide useful answers.
Keith Edwards, Housing Quality Network
Highly recommend Rob if you are looking for a bit of challenge for your team on how they ask the right questions and think about data and research.
Aaron Hill, Scottish Federation of Housing Associations
Having the insight of someone who has worked in this area for many years and is up-to-date on current thinking means that you can feel confident that you’re not going to be in that position afterwards wishing you’d asked something else, wondering what the data is telling you or if it’s giving you what you need.
Joy Kent, CEO Joy Unlimited
