Trends Business Research Ltd (TBR) is a leading UK consultancy providing research, information and advisory services to public and private sector clients. We provide our clients with the evidence they need to make confident, informed decisions.
We are a fully fledged research and strategy consultancy, but we also have an edge. Our TBR Observatory team brings a combination of leading edge analytical skills, data knowledge and TBR's unique longitudinal business database, TCR. They generate insight that is beyond the capability of our competitors.
TBR undertook a difficult project against a tight time scale. Despite this we have felt well involved in the development of the final report and have enjoyed good relations with individual members of the TBR team. Staff have listened to our views and been responsive to our suggestions so that we feel a sense of ‘ownership’ of the final report.
