We do research, evaluation and performance measurement
like nobody else can 

Our philosophy

We keep it simple.

Our aim is to tell you the story that we find in your data. We do this working side by side with you so there are no surprises at the end of the project.  

Everyone's unique.

We have heard of cookie cutter solutions to complex research, evaluation and performance measurement questions, but that's not us. Everyone has a unique issue and we reflect this in our approach to each and every client.

Rigorous solutions

We are a specialized firm so we focus on a few research aspects and do them really well. We use all of our smarts and deep quantitative and qualitative experience to answer your particular question.  You need insights?  We will find them. Rigorously.

Our team lead

We work with a mighty team of experts across the country who deliver results that help you reach your goals. Because each project is different, the team members can vary.  And that's okay because Amanda Parriag ensures that each team is consistent in their approach with clients, each and every time.

Our services


We've been doing research for more than two decades.  No, we're not dinosaurs.  We just know a ton about research design and methodology. And we still continue to learn about new techniques to gather data in a participatory way.

- Pat Beauchamp, VP, Research and Analytics, Hill and Knowlton Strategies


Amanda and I have been working together across a variety of topics and in different roles since 2002. She sees data, innovation, research, and quality in the same way I do.  I’m also proud to say that we share a similar worldview. I work with a ton of people, and when I find someone who I have so much synergy with, I endeavour to maintain the relationship, for such connections are rare, though not as rare as Amanda’s combination of skill, knowledge and integrity.
