We help clients understand emerging trends and opportunities that can affect their priorities and objectives. We do this by conducting detailed research on places, sectors and topical economic issues. We test the feasibility of interventions and explore demand for the services they plan to offer. We produce economic, regeneration and sector support strategies and help stakeholders agree investment priorities.
Economic & Sector Research
We deliver research and evidence to inform our clients’ priorities and investment decisions. We undertake bespoke research and analysis to produce local, regional and national market assessments which underpin multi-million pound investment decisions. Our highly experienced team work together to deliver insightful and innovative research on pressing economic issues covering enterprise, employment, infrastructure, land, premises, innovation and skills.
Set Strategic Priorities
We work openly with clients and stakeholders to develop ambitious long and short-term strategic goals. Our approach is always built on robust economic analysis and a creative assessment of needs and opportunities. We facilitate agreement among public sector partners, businesses, investors and local stakeholders to arrive at compelling priorities for action.
Business Planning & Feasibility
We have a rigorous and independent approach to planning and feasibility studies, built on impartial advice and in-depth evidence. We help projects to get through investment appraisal and deliver real change by drawing on research findings and real world insights. We help clients maximise their resources by using cost-benefit and sensitivity analysis to make firm choices drawn from a range of options and scenarios.
