        2015

        First Class Honours

        Higher Education

        • I received First Class Honours for my dissertation, 'Crossing The Chasm: Segmenting Demand, Optimising Freemium & Closing The Value Gap'. This mixed method research study utilised both primary interviews with industry leaders/commentators and a 1,600 person survey. Research clearly identified that a significant proportion of 'casual' ad-supported music listeners are willing to pay for music at a lowered monthly rate. What's more, if music subscription prices were lowered, the large scale adoption would lead to around a 40% increase in revenues. In addition, I received First Class Honours overall.
