    2022 MRS Pride Award for Inclusive Research – Finalist
    The My Sex My Way survey emerged from a need to listen to and understand the LGBTQ+ community, so that leading sexual wellbeing brand Durex could understand how to best connect, empower, and support the LGBTQ+ community and better position Durex as an ally thus establishing themselves as a credible brand with purpose. Deep collaboration between Durex, Harris Interactive and LGBTQ+ Community experts ensured the study was designed with sensitivity around topics including experiencing discrimination.  Adopting a ‘listen and learn’ approach guaranteed that the LGBTQ+ community could control their own narrative on their experiences of sex education, acceptance, sexual fulfilment, sexual & mental health and dating. The design was endorsed by 5000+ people who trusted us by sharing their most intimate details. Durex identified where real, scalable change is possible. The survey highlighted negative experiences of sex education prompting Durex to partner with the Proud Trust to introduce positive, inclusive, sex education initiatives across UK schools and Universities. Sex Education represents one of the earliest opportunities society has to say ‘we see and accept you’. Insights have also informed Durex’s communications campaign championing self-acceptance.
  • 2021 MRS Award for Healthcare Research – Finalistimage
    2021 MRS Award for Healthcare Research – Finalist
    Our compelling and innovative programme delivered for Holland & Barrett showcases how wide reaching and multi-method research can be used to both quantify different elements of wellness and understand the nuances of a topic which is extremely personal and can be as different as a fingerprint from one individual to another. We delivered a programme that included two key methodologies that provided insights that would not have been possible to capture through traditional quant/qual techniques:
    1. Mobile Diaries across 10 days to understand how consumers are responding to their wellness needs in the moment.
    2. Digital Tracking allowed us to passively monitor online behaviour, including app usage, websites visited, length of time spent on websites, search terms used, and products viewed.
    The research has provided Holland & Barrett with a unique opportunity to not only identify and prioritise key wellness needs that allow them to drive strategic choices but also how they might better connect consumers to solutions through products, services, communities and advice.
