The insight we gained from the work Blue Marble did on our behalf helped us better understand our audiences’ motivations, attitudes and barriers – it’s been absolutely pivotal in helping us to be more ambitious, more creative and, ultimately, more successful in reaching, and talking to, our audiences. The team were also a pleasure to work with!

Blue Marble has been running our member satisfaction survey for three years now and has also conducted qualitative work for us with business owners and senior leaders. The work is consistently done to the highest standards and the team shows an excellent grasp of our own and our members’ needs. Highly credible analysis from a highly credible team.
