Ralph Sutcliffe has joined the TSI team

Ralph SutcliffeI am absolutely delighted to be joining The Survey Initiative!

I’ve known Gary for the best part of 20 years as a colleague, client and friend, and having worked together on what must be into the hundreds of projects, we have a very good understanding of how each other ticks, and the same work ethic and willingness to go the extra mile to get the job done. When I met Jaime, I very soon realised that she was out of the same mould and am thrilled that TSI reflects their personalities and attitudes – which is why it’s great to be joining a well-run and close knit team which I feel I fit into, and a part of already.

I’ve been in the market research and survey software sector for over 30 years and have worked with a range of clients from supporting independent consultants to managing multi-language international surveys for GlaxoSmithKline, as well as helping the BBC and even MI5.

There have been many developments in IT which have aided the collection and processing of data during my career – an area which has always fascinated me and I’ve sought to remain at the forefront of an ever changing industry.

I’ve enjoyed demonstrating software developments, setting up online panels and overseeing the integration of an API linking an online panel provider with an advanced web survey management system, as well as delivering workshops and interactive sessions on benchmarking, increasing responses rate and questionnaire design with researchers and as a guest university lecturer.

Away from work, I enjoy planning driving holidays on the continent with my wife, and is quite fond of a little gastronomy, as well as enduring the trials and tribulations that come with being a season ticket holder at Cheltenham Town FC.
