Consumer/Patient

This area is a grab-bag of highlights because so many of the questions we receive surround creating a better understanding of how consumers across categories think and feel.  From in-home use of products and perceptions of in-store displays on the retail side to tough questions regarding behaviors that adversely effect longterm health and how to gain consumer/patient attention and retention, our approach peels back the layers of understanding to speak to the heart of what is driving markets.
