About Us

DBA is an independent consultancy providing a full range of market research services to local, national and international clients.

David Burton set up DBA in 2004, drawing on 35 years’ experience as market research buyer and provider.  This included 25 years at Board level in leading UK research agencies and experience within two major international communications groups.  He is widely experienced in market research in a range of business sectors and across a wide mix of research methodologies and approaches.  He established DBA in order to bring a more personal and flexible approach to the provision of research services from the smallest research project to major international programmes.

Member of the UK Market Research Society and Independent Consultants Group.  DBA is a Market Research Society Company Partner.

We work with an established network of research associates and partners, carefully selected to produce the best and most effective research that will help our clients prosper.  Each client and project brings particular needs, so we can draw on the most appropriate resources to meet those needs.  This includes experienced consultancy support, a team of senior executive interviewers, and specialist providers of face-to-face, telephone and online interviewing, sampling and recruitment, data processing and statistical analysis.

And we work closely with you, whether you want independent advice, help with selected aspects of a project or the full service from identification of needs to presentation of solutions.
