An important ingredient in getting the right solution is in having the technical skills to know who to find one.
There are lots of people doing market research, but there are relatively few who have a blend of the necessary social science and business skills to do it well. And “passion,” which seems to be a pre-requisite for most marketing professionals these days, won’t overcome the absence of the right skills.
With Horizon you get people who are not only trained to the pinnacle of their professions in social science, statistics and data analytics and presentation, you have people who also have the best training in business management.
