He co-founded Watch Me Think, an independent, multi-country, disruptive research agency.

He is a huge advocate of the importance of identifying the saying vs. doing gap that exists in research, and pointing out the failings of having the incorrect research mix. Clients include major FMCG companies and broadcasters.
Alistair writes for MediaCat magazine, and curates The100, a bi-monthly newsletter on all things interesting in insights and innovation. He speaks regularly at events on the subject of consumer empathy and innovation.
