Melanie, RESEARCH STRATEGY GROUP’s Executive Vice President and Humanist, has expertise in both quantitative and qualitative disciplines — working across numerous sectors, specializing in healthcare, for both public and private organizations. Her expertise includes market dynamics and profiling, brand strategy development, creative development and assessment and patient journey mapping.
