What clients think of PPCR …

“Tony is one of the most gifted research moderators I’ve ever worked with. Without leading the answers, he prompted the group’s comments and probed their feelings to get the nuggets of insight we needed. As an observer, even though I knew what he planned to ask next, it still came across as totally natural and unscripted. Forum (focus group) participants felt at ease – just like he was one of them, rather than being a researcher. Highly recommended. ”

Ian Feber, Creative Strategy Director, The Black Hole Creative Co

“Tony has worked on a number of projects for Thornton & Ross since 2003 – and has made a significant contribution to packaging, advertising and new product development.
The quality of the fieldwork is consistently high, and generates good learning and insight, which is presented clearly, concisely and with an understanding of commercial reality.”

John Chamberlin, Director of Consumer Marketing, Thornton & Ross Ltd.

“My team and I at Retailmap have worked with Tony for many years.  He provides Retailmap with high quality, timely, accurate market intelligence on shopper perceptions and behaviour in the fashion market.  Where possible, Tony also delivers additional insights and added value, and on top of this he is always a pleasure to work with.”

Richard Fitzpatrick, MD of Retailmap

“Tony Moore has regularly undertaken qualitative and quantitative research for Argos for over ten years, covering catalogue design, store formats, financial services and other areas.
Tony consistently provides first class insight which has helped Argos improve its customer focus and offering.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to other research buyers.”

Dr. Don Nisbet, (then) Head of Customer & Market Insight, Argos

“Tony has worked on a number of projects for us over the past few years. All of them have been handled positively and professionally and each one has provided us with crucial information which we have been able to use and act on within the business. Importantly, we value his services and enjoy working with him.’

Karen Gee (then) Sales and Marketing Director, Shearings Holidays
