About Us

Oulton-Lee Research was established in 1991 by Sue Garner. Sue has a degree in Business Management and a Diploma in Industrial Studies. She trained in research methodology during her time with Nestle UK and subsequently worked on the client side with other FMCG companies.

Since setting up as an independent consultant in 1991, Sue has tended increasingly to work in the not-for-profit and charitable sectors, with work coming from existing clients and through client referrals.

Sue Garner is a Certified Member of the Market Research Society (CMRS) and a Member of the Independent Consultants Group (ICG). She is also a Member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

If you think that research could help your organisation to move forward with confidence, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you.

“Working for over twenty years in consultancy hasn’t dampened my enthusiasm to align myself closely with individual organisations and work with them to meet their information needs. Many of my clients are working to benefit people in deepest need around the world, and I am passionate about helping them to work on their strategy, messaging and positioning to optimise their work and ministry.

I am also a therapeutic counsellor with a private practice seeing individuals and couples. I feel that my training and experience in counselling informs and enhances my research work by going deeper with respondents in terms of attitudes, motivations, perception and behaviour ”
