Fiona heads up the delivery of TBR’s team of research consultants and also undertakes many of TBR’s business development activities.
One of Fiona’s key strengths is moving forward the information and evidence generated through programmes of primary and secondary research to provide interpretation and understanding.

Fiona’s role requires a multifaceted skill-set, drawing upon her expertise in the manipulation and interpretation of data.

Since joining TBR Fiona’s passion for research has only increased, fuelled by the knowledge that the work we do helps shape the development of the UK, at a micro and macro level. Fiona has particular experience in the UK skills agenda as well as arts & culture and entrepreneurship.
