"We wanted to understand and capture our local population's views about our new sexual health service. From beginning to end Breaking Blue provided us with an excellent service in terms of advice, expertise, project design/delivery and final outcomes. They were readily available when needed, kept to time lines and produced quality results/data in a variety of useful formats. I would definitely use their services again in future and happily recommend them to others."

"I’ve been delighted with the research outputs and recommendations, so much so I’ll be commissioning further projects!
The insight into consumer needs and emotions have been key to foundation of a revised strategy.

Breaking Blues collaborative approach to multiple stakeholders, in-depth analysis and Qual and Quant techniques provided the best holistic approach I’ve seen to date from any agency."

Ahlstrom

“The study shed light on the crucial need for improved customer focus. We now put more emphasis into visiting customers and truly understanding their needs.
The study also confirmed that the various machines customers use, determine most of the characteristics the tea bag material needs to have to help our customers win. Therefore we developed strong relationships with machine builders ensuring an efficient convertibility of Ahlstrom materials on every tea packing machine available in the market.
Following the study we optimized our product portfolio to include high efficiency products, and today we are very proud to be able to state that Ahlstrom has the most complete product portfolio in the market.  Ahlstrom is now leading the market with a big focus on sustainability.

The Chamberlain Group

“... have been one of the few true partners I've had the pleasure to work with in my career. Not only do they have a great knowledge in traditional and recent research methodologies, but their team of skilled consultants work hand-in-hand to design and execute nearly flawlessly to achieve our global research objectives. No matter the locale or scope of the program, they find a way to get it done.


They are able and willing to meet tight timelines and provide deep insights into the work they've been commissioned to do. You know the saying, 'you get what you pay for', they may seem to be higher priced than traditional research firms, but the result is definitely worth the price.”

"We recently ran a piece of research jointly with the DWP on pensions.
It was really important that the research agency we used was one we could trust, could be flexible and deliver insight.
Breaking Blue did all of this for us and got some great response rates on a fairly hard and small sample."

"The Active Investors Monitor gives us invaluable insight on our brand strength compared to our peers, on investors’ priorities and, crucially, the investor journey from need to execution. The recent inclusion of ‘Tomorrow’s Investors’ gives additional insight into the new wave of post-RDR investors about to dip their toe in the water. Their ‘quality stamp’ means it is delivered to the highest possible standards and with genuine market understanding."

McCarthy & Stone

"We worked with Breaking Blue on a recent creative research project. The project required a responsive, knowledgeable
and professional
agency that were adept at managing a large number of stakeholders, a sometimes difficult (to recruit)
target audience and a level of attention to detail that meant it could be turned around in double quick time with outputs
and recommendations that were transferable across a number of communication channels. Breaking Blue were that agency!!
Nothing was too much trouble, the focus groups were superbly handled and the results were presented with
true insight & craft! I would not hesitate to recommend Breaking Blue as an excellent and dependable agency
who are truly on the top of their game!"

"Breaking Blue’s coverage of the intermediary audience is unique, engaging not only advisers and discretionaries, but also those at the very top of the tree, who design investment solutions and panels: the powerhouses behind the scenes that call the shots. As for retail investors, they give us invaluable market insight on business challenges from brand strength to de-branded ad recognition through to the purchase journey"
