Turning insight, evidence and ideas into action


Alan Graver, MMRS, Managing Director Skyblue Research Ltd

Alan has been a professional market researcher and consultant since 1991 but his core capability is actually running businesses and overseeing their development. He has experience of winning, directing and delivering over 2,000 research, evaluation and consultancy projects for clients in his career. He has authored a number of strategies that have played their part in underpinning some quite significant happenings in the UK; for example the earliest skills strategy to deliver the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. His work is often published but more importantly the recommendations made following research are largely adopted because of their rigour and practical application.

Key policy areas include:

  • Skills, employment & training
  • Major infrastructure Projects
  • Energy and Low Carbon
  • Public health, sport & well-being

Alan is an engaging individual able to skilfully win over and then bring out the best in others.
