Ginevra House is an outstanding researcher. She has completed a number of briefings, scoping studies and analysis of survey results for me in a past position. Her spoken and written communication is excellent, and the quality of the reports she produced was of a really high standard, from the perspective of being written clearly, and the impressive grasp of statistics, qualitative and quantitative research outcomes.
