Our team

Harriet Scott

Managing Director

Co-founder of research agency, One Poll, and MD of its sister news consultancy arm, 72Point, for 12 years; Harriet co-founded Ginger Research in 2015, which was rebranded as Perspectus Global in 2021.

Dave Arnold


With an eight-year journalistic background that spanned regional and national newspapers, David moved to OnePoll and 72Point for three years, before helping to launch Ginger Research in 2015.

David’s eye for ensuring research is robust and newsworthy has helped Perspectus Global secure international work with major brand clients and agencies including Bacardi, Groupon & Vodafone.

His passions include looking after his new baby girl, Aurora, and following the temperate ups and crushing lows of his beloved Tottenham Hotspur.

Ellie Glason MMRS

Associate Director

With a 10-year background in PR and news generation, Ellie has spent the last three years working specifically on research-based projects for consumer and trade with some of the world’s biggest household name brands, and is a member of the MRS.

A creative, she also loves stats and has a wealth of experience overseeing brand storytelling campaigns for multiple audiences.

When not crunching numbers, she enjoys reading trashy crime novels, trying to keep her houseplants alive, and having power naps.

Jon Horsley

Senior Research Consultant

After a stint in the European Parliament, Jon moved into online media writing about football for the 365 corporation, before being made editor of website Music365. He began his research career and developed a love of Excel, while working in marketing for a national supermarket chain.

Jon now has years of experience overseeing research projects and writing whitepapers for international corporations.

When he’s not working, Jon cooks overelaborate food, plays chess and tortures himself watching Sheffield Wednesday.

Claudia Crosse

Account Manager

Claudia has years of experience undertaking and delivering a wide range of research to clients in our key areas, including a host of successful international projects. She manages research, as well as client relationships at Perspectus Global, and should be the first port of call for a research quote.

Claudia also produces music and is a self-proclaimed Whisky connoisseur. As an international expert, inevitably she enjoys travel.

Charlie Gibbon

Charlie received a first-class bachelor’s degree in Social Policy from Leeds University, with a focus on Qualitative & Quantitative research methodology. He put his passion for research to one side to explore opportunities in advertising, sales and publishing, before finding a role at GingerComms in the public relations sector.

When Perspectus Global was launched, Charlie was able to apply his range of quantitative and qualitative research techniques into the consumer and B2B sphere.
