Kick-start the New Year by joining Colette Quinn on the 23rd January in Republic of Work for her ‘Lunch & Learn’ and discover and explore the fundamentals to building a business based on the correct set of assumptions and understand why ignoring these is really to your detriment!
Colette runs Real Insights, a Cork based market research agency. One of her core areas of expertise is market and concept validation and helping businesses figure out if their idea or new product or service has legs. She has a no-nonsense, straight talking approach to research and has over 20 years hands-on experience of successfully helping brands and businesses at different stages of development to grow and scale.
No matter who the client is, the focus is always about using data and insights effectively to inform decision making, direct business planning and identify opportunities for growth and capitalising on these.
Colette previously managed the Consumer Insight remit for Vodafone Ireland and Musgrave SuperValu Centra and recent clients of Real Insights have spanned the enterprise software, medical device, engineering, manufacturing, consumer goods and hospitality sectors. She works on many programmes around the country supporting entrepreneurs and mentors for Enterprise Ireland as well as Local Enterprise Offices. She’s also a board member of SHINE, a Cork based charity supporting children and teens with Autism and their families.
