Congratulations to Clair Hanna – who just completed a 12 week internship with D&M. Clair was a real asset to the team during one of our busiest times in recent history. Clair has been rewarded with a Research Assistant role and we look forward to Clair making further contributions to the important work we do at D&M.
Congratulations to Derek Jones who has recently taken up a role as Guest Lecturer at the University of NSW at the School of Business – Derek will be teaching the finer points of research philosophy and methodology to both Marketing and MBA post grad students and is looking forward to the challenge of teaching some of Australia brightest students.
Well over the past 3 years D&M Research has been developing a new driver analysis research technique called ‘Polygraph’
which was showcased through the Media and the Award winning papers ‘What Women & Men Really Want but won’t necessarily tell you’.
The technique is now available to the broader research clientele and has already been used by a number of clients in a range of applications.
The great thing about polygraph is it provides us a completely new way of classifying drivers of brand choice which takes into consideration not just what people say but also what they actually do.
May 2012 – D&M Research is Mobile Enabled
Mobile research is simply enabling respondents to undertake research tasks like surveys and forums on their smart phones, tablets and other 3 & 4G enabled devices. The problem has been that traditional online research solutions have been designed for PCs and laptops and don’t translate well onto portable devices – thus the proliferation of new mobile based platforms and panels.
Working with our software partner Dipolar we now have an online survey platform that just knows whether it’s been deployed on a PC, laptop, smart phone or tablet, then renders and optimises the format accordingly – increases our response rates and respondent engagement at the lowest cost to our clients. No need to reinvent the wheel!

What men really want from women!
After winning the people’s choice and best presentation awards at the 2010 AMSRS Conference with his presentation, ‘What women really want – but won’t tell you’, this year Jones is back to give you more of what you want with the brother study to reveal what it is that men really want but don’t necessarily articulate. He hopes to demonstrate that men are far less one dimensional than we may think. Like the women’s study, be prepared for a controversial, and sometimes surprising, research ride with plenty of humour to keep you entertained along the way.

May 2010 – Derek to Present “What Women Want, but won’t tell you!” at Annual AMSRS Conference
Have you ever wondered what we really look for in a life partner? Derek Jones of D&M has been accepted to present the findings of his “What Women Want, but won’t tell you!” study in this year’s AMSRS annual conference. Stage one of the research has been completed, which revealed that women say they mostly want a sense of humour, honesty and a good personality, and don’t want arrogance, rudeness or bad hygiene. Will these follow through to stage two where Derek intends to discover the hidden, less articulated aspects that attract and repel? The best way to find out is to attend the AMSRS conference in Melbourne in October 2010.
