Understanding brand perceptions and major challenges in the retail sector

The client challenge:  A leading general retailer asked us to explore the strength of its relationships with key stakeholders and gain insight into their perceptions of the brand and what they saw as the strategic challenges and threats ahead.

Our approach: Working with the client, we identified priority stakeholders to interview.  We conducted in-depth research to explore their views on the retailer’s  proposition, business strategy and  leadership team.  We also looked at the relative strengths of the different pillars of the business and perceptions of the  success of various campaigns, initiatives and innovations.

Client benefits: The research provided our client with a detailed assessment of the strength of its reputation and brand communications as well as delivering insights to help guide strategic marketing and engagement strategies.
