Insight for Impact is SQW’s podcast. As a business, we believe that good public policy shapes a better society – and it must therefore be guided by high quality research, analysis and insight. This principle has shaped our work since SQW was formed in the early 1980s, and we have generated a huge bank of experience and insight in applying it. Our podcast series is aimed at anyone with an interest in good public policy (particularly at national and local levels in the UK). It addresses highly topical economic and social issues ranging from innovation and local economic development through to skills, education, health and social care. Drawing on high quality evidence and analysis, it seeks to inform and stimulate the surrounding debates, and it aims, literally, to provide insight for impact.
