Commenting on these and the other 16 new engagements, Rodney Kayton (Managing Partner, Study Hall) said: ‘This is the most aggressive business schedule we have seen since Study Hall opened its doors. Eight weeks into 2014 we are at nearly 20% of our annual revenue forecast, and we are signing contracts much more aggressively than one year ago. We view this in two ways: first, as a strong economic indicator regarding the overall business climate for marketing research; and second, as a continued affirmation of the quality of work that Study Hall Research executes for clients.’ Kayton added: ‘We look forward to the remainder of 2014 and to continuing this same strong business performance.’
