McCrindle in the Media

Thursday, August 25, 2016

As Australia’s leading social researchers, we regularly assist our clients in identifying newsworthy angles in their research to help communicate the insights effectively with the broader public. Our senior research team at McCrindle are actively involved in media commentary, and the communication of key research findings. At McCrindle we are passionate about communicating insights in clear, accessible and useable ways.

Our recent research commissioned by the Financial Planning Association found that one in two of us dream more about our future now than we did five years ago. Check out our latest media activity that we have been cited in just in time for Financial Planning Week (August 22 - 28).

Managing research across multiple sectors and locations, she is well positioned to understand the mega trends transforming the workplace, household and consumer landscapes. Her expertise is in telling the story embedded in the data and communicating the insights in visual and practical ways.
