Workshop Programme

News Room

We are delighted to be announcing our workshop programme, which we aim to run each month to share our considerable skills.  These are client side Insight skills rather than the types of workshops you might attend to develop basic research skills.

Facilitators are senior Insight professionals many having headed up insight functions or from our wider senior Associate specialist professionals.   Most of our courses are aimed at early and mid career, and often can be helpful to non-insighters (marketers, operations staff).

Project Manager – Transformation Team

I was impressed by Lisa from The Hive as she “got it” in terms of the Darwin Nursery Project / brief and the co-worker model and stressed the need to ensure that there is a clear strategy to support their flow through the Darwin into other employment opportunities.

Lisa and Emily spent time getting to know the co-workers, staff and customers at our garden nursery and this gave the ladies more of an understanding of our business and needs.

We were all very impressed with the overall reports, feedback and presentation that The Hive delivered to us within quite a short turnaround. Now armed with this information we can progress our project taking on-board the recommendations provided by Lisa and focus on the 3 key areas in a manageable and effective way.
Thank you Lisa and Emily it was a pleasure working with you.
