The world needs
more geeks.

The clever, slightly
obsessive kind.

The eyes and ears on every journey who steer the course.

The coxswain in the winning boat.

Hello, we are Ninth Seat
and we are those geeks.

We do

Believe that our job as researchers is to find and tell the strategic story, powerfully

Ensure our teams are led by experienced senior researchers, who are experts at the design, the doing and the delivery

Listen! And only then design a tailored approach which will best deliver against the brief. We have quantitative, qualitative, digital and consultancy tools at our disposal.

We don’t

Off-the-shelf projects
Limit our thinking to the confines of a brief or even a category
Sell senior, deliver junior
Sit on the fence
Sugar coat tough news
Deliver reportage and call it insight

Why us?

Research agencies typically have similar menus of services. Clients choose us because we stand out in how we approach projects, relationships and storytelling.
