About Us

Derham Insights Research undertakes business-to-consumer and business-to-business marketing research, and employee research.

In the course of our research, we have explored the motives and needs of Australians ranging from the richest and most powerful to small investors, from city “sophisticates” to regional dwellers, shoppers, small business people, professionals, students, staff from a range of organisations, people from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and those who describe themselves as “just mums”.

The Melbourne-based company conducts research throughout Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the USA.

The company principal, Philip Derham, is an experienced moderator and quantitative researcher.
