This week's candidate is Kristen Turnbull, Head of WA at CoreData Group, who assists businesses with research-driven insight to help them acquire, retain or engage customers. Learn more about Kristen and who she'd like to connect with below.
What ideas are you exploring at the moment? What are you working on?
CoreData is a global market research consultancy. We help companies grow by better understanding their customers. At the moment a big focus among clients is engagement – how you can cut through the noise to make more meaningful connections with your customers? So a lot of the research and data visualisation we do aims to support them to achieve that goal.
What do you enjoy most about the Spacecubed community?
Meeting interesting, like-minded people who are working on inspiring ideas. Business connections are a bonus, but just working in a collaborative environment where everyone is trying to grow successful businesses makes it an enjoyable space to be in.
How did your startup journey begin?
I’m a little bit different to a lot of Spacecubed members in that I’m working for a global business that has been around for 15 years on the east coast. My challenge is to build our client base here in WA. I feel privileged to have the opportunity to grow a business without any of the usual risk of a new venture!
Who would you like to connect with most?
C-suite execs and decision makers in service-based companies. Anyone who needs research-driven insight to help them acquire, retain or engage customers. In saying that, I’m open to having a coffee with anyone as I really appreciated so many people giving up their time to meet with me when I was re-establishing myself in Perth recently after moving from Sydney.
Can you share with us a success story you've achieved during your time at FLUX?
We recently did some work for CORE Innovation Hub. That was a direct result of relationships made through the FLUX community, so I see it as a win not just for CoreData but for co-working as well.
What do you hope to achieve in 2017?
Continue to grow our client base in Perth and drive referral-based business growth in this market.
