Our Background

Chris Hadley Consulting was established in 1994 to offer an alternative for organisations seeking strategic market research and marketing support without having to resort to the use of larger management and marketing consultancies.

Chris’ own experiences then, and now, continues to highlight the poor service given by some larger consultancies either through the use of poorly qualified staff or the inability to offer practical advice on what a client should do next once a project has been completed. The result is often, at best, recommendations that don’t fully draw upon the findings of the research or at worst fail to meet the original brief.

We have worked extensively over the past two decades in developing a presence with both private and public sector clients. This has resulted in the development of a strong reputation in the environmental, energy and building markets as well as a number of specialist markets.

With over 600 projects completed since 1994 we have a range of skills and experience to meet the most demanding research needs.

Volunteering Experience

Chris Hadley Consulting works as a mentor company for final year students at both the University of Manchester and the University of Hull. Chris has nearly two decades experience of mentoring and has worked with a range of students looking for a career in environmental, energy and related sectors.
