Research Audit – Perspectus Global (March - April 2021)

"We brought Mark in for consultation, advice and training as we were going through a big rebrand and he is fantastic to work with. He got the brief instantly, swiftly delivered a report which is gold dust in terms of content, and ran sessions with the team which were infinitely useful. We'd recommend him to others, and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again."

Girls’ Circle – Baseline KAP Survey Report – Purposeful (September 2020 – February 2021)

"We engaged Mark's services to deliver a KAP study of adolescent girls across six districts of Sierra Leone. Mark was incredibly professional throughout this process and supported us to deliver a high quality report on time and to budget. Mark is personable, thoughtful and solution-oriented in his approach - from designing the survey tool and the three day remote data collection training to delivering last-minute additional analysis requests. During a time of uncertainty due to COVID-19, Mark was responsive and adaptive so we could still deliver on time, while maintaining the rigour and robustness needed." 

 Emma Mulhern, Senior Learning and Insight Manager, Purposeful

Women’s Initiative for Socio-Economic Engagement (WISE) – World Bank Group and SD Direct (October 2017 – January 2018)

"It has been a real pleasure working with Mark on the Nigeria for Women Social Analysis. SD Direct was requested by the World Bank Group to undertake a rapid social analysis in Nigeria to feed into the design of this major women’s economic and social empowerment programme. Mark took on the formidable role of leading the design and delivery of a household survey across six states, covering the different geo-political zones of Nigeria within an incredibly short timeframe. I was amazed by the speed at which Mark was able to design the survey and work with our local research partner – to deliver a high-quality survey, analysis and report - to time and budget. Superb!"

Sue Phillips, Managing Director, SD Direct

Digital Marketing Forum – Richmond Events (March 2017)

"I’ve worked with Mark for many years, both at previous companies and now at xSpeediency. He makes the effort to understand projects (whether he has knowledge of the industry or not), delivers and often enhances the original brief, and most importantly delivers results that can be used in the business going forwards. Furthermore, he’s pleasant to work with."
