We want to drive ever greater participation by young people in our national sports in a fun and healthy way. To help achieve that we needed to do a comprehensive evaluation of our Cúl Camps so that our evolving strategy would reflect the grassroots opinions of parents. We hadn’t dealt with Brendan from SurveyGuru before so we weren’t sure if he would “get” that this wasn’t your typical clinical financially-motivated exercise. Would he understand that we genuinely and humbly wanted to get our fingers on the pulse of parents all over Ireland? His understanding of the brief became apparent through patient phone-calls and meetings. His constructive suggestions helped improve that brief and built our trust in him. I won’t bore you with how the process worked. Suffice it to say that we got what we wanted. We found out what parents thought. What they wanted. What their children’s opinions were. Brendan ensured that we got enough results to be confident in their accuracy. If you want an unvarnished and accurate evaluation then Brendan will do it for you. If you ask him to examine something then be prepared to take the results on the chin. He’ll make recommendations rooted in hard data. And he’ll make them for your benefit. If you want flattery though, then you need to look elsewhere!
