Hi, my name is Carsten Gayer, I am founder and managing director of Gayer Consulting in Essen/Germany. We are a market research and intelligence firm and among the founding members of the Global Intelligence Alliance (GIA, www.globalintelligence.com). Personally I am board member of dcif (www.dcif.de), the German affiliate of SCIP. Our team and me are permanently interested in new market research and intelligence methodologies, trends, and solutions. Moreover, I am keen on discussing with other people also working in this interesting field!
