Coventry, Strategic Transformation 

The University commissioned Kathryn to review the market for online learning, providing guidance on entry strategy, making evidence-based recommendations on competitors, market potential, market motivations, product delivery and pricing.


"Despite a challenging, time-critical brief, Kathryn created one of the most comprehensive market research reports I have ever read. She provided us with the insight and commentary that will ultimately allow us to position ourselves with relevant messaging that will resonate with potential audiences whilst also being distinctive amongst our competitors."
