1 Knowledge Leverage We engage consumers to think harder, to think better allowing us to get better data and generate richer knowledge. We activate them to structurally collaborate with us to co-create the future of brands. “A closed research community – brilliantly moderated by InSites Consulting – allowed us to learn from lead users and co-create our B&J’s marketing plans.”
2 Internal Leverage Change management within companies based on research by changing the hearts, minds and actions of executives. The effects of our research go beyond traditional reporting, e.g. by means of positive disruption games and communication campaigns..“The amount of information youpulled together for us is incrediblyinsightful and helpful. Its alsopresented in such an engaging waythat it makes going through thecontent enjoyable.It truly is the best research reportIve seen in many, many years, if notthe best. Thanks again.”

Great staffmember are criticalin shaping my night,they are the face ofthe club. Theyshould fit theidentity of the placeand radiatepositive energy,most of the time thisisn’t the case.
The staff is dressed in vibrant futuristic outfits,in line with the ‘Changing perspectives’ theme of the club.
It is so frustratingnot to be noticedby the bartender!I’m clearly trying toget his attention,however others arebeing served beforeme.
The bar is interactive and allows you to order a beer,it even keeps track of who is next in line.
For me dancing is agreat way torelease my energyand to loose myinhibitions; it wouldbe great if there wasenough space toreally go wild!
Leave your drink on the numbered shelfand go crazy on the dance floor.
It’s awful when weget kicked outwhen the clubcloses! The leastthey could do ischeck up on us tomake sure we had agreat night, are inneed for a last drinkor a cab.
When it’s time to move on,a friendly concierge will guideclubbers onwards, giving directionsand arranging cabs home.
