C. Frederic (Fred) John – Founder and Principal, Consilience Research & Consulting, LLC

C. Fred John Fred stumbled into the market research profession nearly 40 years ago and never found the exit. He worked for many years on the research company side, including as a Partner at Yankelovich Partners, where he managed the global network and ran a custom research group. In 2001 he crossed to the client side when he joined the global research team at MasterCard Worldwide. He set up his own consultancy in 2012. Throughout his career he has specialized in B2B, corporate reputation, and financial services. Fred has been an active member of ESOMAR, serving on the Council for four years, two as Vice-President. Fred has just published “Storytelling and Market Research: A Practical User Guide” to address what he feels is the most neglected aspects of market research: the deliverable. Many research reports and presentations fail to meet client expectations and tend to be deadly dull. The solutions proposed include identifying and showcasing the essential learning of a study and crafting a narrative using storytelling techniques. The book provides concrete ways to achieve these goals and a detailed analysis of why stories can have such a powerful impact. He is a frequent contributor to professional publications, speaker at conferences and offers training workshops on professional skills such as insights identification and the use of storytelling techniques. His latest articles are “A New Typology of Market Research” and “10 Heresies in Market Research,” both appearing in Quirks Magazine.
