  • Consults with internal and external clients to understand strategic research objectives and propose the appropriate approach to get to game-changing insights
  • Manages research project from beginning to end
  • Creates documentation of project requirements and proposals
  • Connects the dots on secondary research and social listening in a way that sparks new thinking
  • Concisely weaves together insights to create a compelling and human story
