Introducing Roy’s Video Blog
This site is for insight workers, be they market or qualitative researchers, insight teams, planners or facilitators.The central theme of the site is insight and how to achieve it. I plan to spend the next years teaching and coaching others in what I’ve learned about how to do this.
- at the top of the page you will find clickable thumbnails of our videos containing ideas and tips for insight workers about facilitation, co-creation, making contact, paths to insight and breakthrough psychology.
- at the bottom of this page you will find the latest five posts from my blog, updated weekly.
NEWS FLASH: We have now finished our first full run of the Advanced Practitioner’s Course below – and we have six graduates, our very first! Over the next days I will post on this page some of the things they tell us about the course in their feedback. Fingers crossed it’s good!

According to today’s Observer, less than 20% of us believe in the austerity plan, criticsed on these pages two years ago! Most of us, including Tories, now believe it is actively harming the economy… So, if you frighten people, they either fly, freeze or fight. Most of us have fled by suspending our spending and [...]

Qualitative work was founded on the idea of making contact with people in greater depth. This website contains ideas, tips and techniques on how to do that well. It also contains things that I feel passionately about which affect our daily lives!
