Independent Specialty Research Services

At Lighthouse Horticulture, I take pride in offering a boutique research service that stands out from the rest. I am committed to providing high quality research with a personalised experience and work hard to see the objectives of my clients fulfilled.

Key Features:

  • Customised Solutions: I understand that no two research projects are the same. Work with me to develop fit for purpose research strategies and methodologies that align with your unique objectives.

  • Subject Matter Expertise: When you choose to work with Lighthouse Horticulture, you receive the full benefit of consultant-led research. I bring 12 years of knowledge and experience in the horticultural sector to the table.

  • End to End Project Management: From project inception to research extension, Lighthouse Horticulture can oversee all aspects of the research process, providing a comprehensive, one-stop-shop solution.

  • Data Driven Decision Making: Our services are designed to empower you with research findings that drive informed, data-backed decisions.

Benefits of Consultant-Led Research Services:

  • In-depth insights: Detailed and in-depth reports that provide a deeper understanding of the project.

  • Practical Recommendations: Our research goes beyond data collection; I provide practical recommendations for addressing your specific challenges.

  • Credibility: Consultant-led research projects are highly credible and trusted for their independence and quality.

  • One Stop Shop: End to end service from research services through to extension to growers and clients.


How it Normally Works:

While all projects and clients are different, most will follow a similar process:

  • Consultation/Discovery Call: It all begins with an initial discussion to understand your research requirements and overarching objectives.

  • Research Design: Typically a collaborative part of the process – we work together to develop an appropriate trial design and methodology.

  • Trial Management and Data Collection: Using a range of contract staff to ensure cost efficiency, we run the trial and collect the right data.  

  • Reporting and Extension: You receive a comprehensive research report with actionable insights, unique data visuals and recommendations. We work together on the implementation and extension requirements; as an experience public speaker I can provide this as part of the service, or I provide support to your own technical staff for them to implement.
