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

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.

Evie Porter

After spending time building a career in PR and marketing, Evie has been working with the Perspectus Global team for the last few years. Drawing upon the knowledge secured during her Sociology degree at the University of Exeter, where she got to grips with undertaking effective research methods, Evie enjoys exploring statistics and using them to identify wider trends.

She particularly likes crafting questions to help secure the most interesting stats and using the results to create strong, robust reports for clients.

In her spare time, Evie enjoys yoga, spending time with her little boy and trying (and failing) to secure Taylor Swift tickets.
