More About Nikki:
What’s your favorite qualitative research methodology?
Of course In-Person Focus Groups are my favorite methodology! But more specifically the “Living Room Set Up” I love transforming a conference room into an unexpected, inviting, idea inspiring environment where everyone can feel comfortable providing real insights… Imagine what would happen if you added a signature cocktail and charcuterie board!
What’s your favorite backroom snack?
Gardetto’s – Always excited to see them. Never buy them. Not sure what’s actually in them. Likely habit forming. But my back room go-to wherever they are served!
