Louise believes firmly in the power of research to make positive change happen – helping to create an environment where people have the information they need to be motivated and can see their opportunity to make a real difference.
With more than 20 years’ market and business research experience, Louise worked as a Commercial Director of leading international research company GfK. Here she gained a detailed understanding of the commercial and not-for-profit sectors, working with everyone from board level to the shop floor and from operations to HR.
In 2007, Louise completed an MA in Coaching and Mentoring Practice and, after a month travelling India on a motorbike, set up Insight Oxford (Consulting) – now Research Oxford. During this time, the company has developed an impressive track record, providing research, evaluation and data analysis services to clients in Oxfordshire and further afield.
Louise puts community engagement and social value at the heart the business. She also plays an active part in running ROBIN, the Responsible Oxfordshire Business Involvement Network, and is a trustee of Restore, a mental health charity that supports people to take control of their recovery, develop skills and lead meaningful lives.
Away from the world of research, Louise loves the outdoors, motorcycling and the odd drop of real ale.
