  27. 27. SQAD’s Trends and Observations “If one thinks of the great business leaders and innovators, it is obvious that their strength is their ability to use research not as a crutch but as a starting point to provide lots of options. Collected facts are actionable. They tell you to apply the hammer to the nail and where the nail is. SQAD data is collected facts. It is the only source that is a large enough sample and is untouched by vested interests that allow stations/advertisers/agencies/ to do due diligence on their media costs.” Jon Mandel, Chairman and CEO of PrecisionDemand
