High Street Dissertation Survey


I’m afraid I need help again.

I am currently working on my dissertation (which means I can see the light at the end of the tunnel for this Masters) and I need to get as many respondents to my survey as possible.

I’m researching the corporate reputation of the UK High Street and focusing on three case studies, and I basically want to know what you, the consumers, feel about them.

Now, unfortunately, because it’s based on the UK High Street only people living in the UK can answer as they (hopefully) visit often.

So, below you will find the link to my survey (if you have the time to answer can you make sure every question has been answered, people have had trouble submitting and I believe it’s because a question has been missed) and only do it once! So if you happen to get the link to this a second time please disregard!

Here’s the link:

Finally, one last plea, I need as many responses as possible, so if you could reblog this or send the link to family and friends or share it on Twitter or Facebook I would be forever grateful for your help!

Then in comes Robin Ellacott, a bright, intuitive temp who’s been assigned to Strike’s office for a week. Thus starts a tentative friendship and a blossoming professional partnership. Continue reading
