Reports

Research and analysis

We work with a range of individuals and businesses to provide a complete suite of research and analysis services. These include statistical analysts, economists, electronic survey experts, and others.

We have substantial experience in drafting reports and papers, many of which have been in the public arena for consultation or comment.

Dr Helen Grzyb has substantial expertise as a professional presenter and is able to chunk down complex concepts into bite sized chunks, an important factor in sharing new information for serious consideration by stakeholders.

We have developed or contributed to a wide range of reports for clients, many of which are publicly available: Examples are:

  1. Workforce Development Report for CommunityWest Inc (2011).
  2.  Consultation and strategy development with the business and community sectors as part of the Partnerships WA project in conjunction with Lotterywest (2003).
