Introducing Ben Meek, Account Manager at Metrix Consulting.

When faced with a complex research issue I start by taking a step back. I think about why we’re being asked to do what we’re doing and what it is we need to find out. That way you’re not so likely to get stuck in the problem itself. You can really focus in on what it is you want to find out and then think about all the different approaches you could take to get there.

My favourite research project to date involved evaluating awareness of smart-home technology. I found it very interesting because the main sample group were people who are either building or have recently built. My partner – an interior designer – and I have just built a home so the insights were very relevant to the types of things we’ve been doing.

I think it’s important to take a holistic approach when researching because it means considering all the different factors at play and not relying on one source of information. You’re looking at it from multiple angles, even if it’s trying to validate or disprove things you’ve done in another way. Whether you’re drilling down into the detail or not, it’s about making sure you’ve explored all avenues possible and given them the respect they deserve.

My go-to lunch in the office would be leftovers. My favourite is shakshuka, the Middle-Eastern dish with poached eggs in a tomato and pepper sauce served with crusty bread. I’ll make a big batch the night before. I love the flavours.

When I’m not at work you’ll often find me outdoors, either in the garden or kayak fishing near Blackwall Reach. Both activities are quiet, relaxing and calming.
