This month in the spotlight is Charles Battrick, one of our Software Developers who joined us last year.
What brought you into the world of market research?
I found my way into market research through a software development course. I wasn’t quite sure what my first job would be, but I am happy that it turned out the way it did.
Market research is an interesting and varied industry to be a part of.
If you were stuck on a desert island and you could bring three people to join you, dead or alive, real or fictitious, who would you pick?
I would definitely like to have met Michel de Montaigne. He was a French philosopher in the 16th Century who wrote a collection of essays that hint at an interesting and humble mind.
He had a writing room in which he had some of his favourite quotes carved into the wooden beams, which always thought was a beautiful idea.
My second choice would be Immortal Technique, an American underground hip hop artist. After serving time as a teenager he reformed himself as an intellectual rapper who is severely critical of capitalism. I would love to have the opportunity to pick his brain.
Lastly, it would have to be Ray Mears because he knows how to make a shower out of bamboo and that would no doubt come in handy.
Describe your ideal weekend
My ideal weekend would be spent in an isolated mountain villa, somewhere warm, with close friends and family. Good food, plenty of drinks and no concerns.
Favourite film, book and podcast?
My favourite film is Back to The Future. I’m not really into fiction books - the books I have most enjoyed reading are Alex Ferguson: My Autobiography and Exit Music: A Radiohead Story.
There are three podcasts that I listen to most of the time, ‘No Such Thing As a Fish’, ‘That Peter Crouch Podcast’ and ‘The Infinite Monkey Cage’.
