The Didobi team has been great in producing the Isle of Man first Town Audits. The team came in quickly and has done remarkably diligent job in such a small timeframe. It is so great to see all this data in one place. It allows the Isle of Man to benchmark its local economy for the very first time. The audits will be the foundations to the Isle of Man’s local economy strategy.
Tim Cowsill
Chief Executive of Business
I was absolutely delighted by the outputs from this project. From the outset the depth of experience, understanding and energy that Didobi brought was excellent…… Thank you to all involved and I hope we can work again together.
Sam Gilmour
Head of Economic Growth and Infrastructure, Middlesbrough Council
I was very impressed by Didobi and what they were able to achieve….…… They clearly communicated what they were doing and were very collaborative in choosing the data measures. They exhibited very detailed knowledge of data, potential pitfalls when using data, as well as an excellent ability to source open and commercial data to achieve the outcomes required.
Alex Hatt
Regeneration Manager
Our thanks to Matthew and the Didobi team for their research and insights in the science and tech sectors, the trends shaping its growth, the roles of cities and universities and emerging areas for growth. I was really impressed with the research data and their work will help us inform our focus.
Graham Lambert
Managing Director, Vinci UK Developments
Didobi have run training for my team to build our knowledge and confidence around data. We’re now much more clued up and informed when talking with analysts, commissioning research and reports, agreeing grant monitoring frameworks and procuring data.
Paul Broadhurst
Manager – 24 Hour London, Greater London Authority
Matthew and the team at Didobi have been invaluable in de-mystifying data for me, my team and London’s local authorities. We hired Didobi to help local authorities create evidence bases for their night-time strategies. They’ve helped the local authorities to understand the key questions they need to answer about their boroughs at night, what sources of data they can use, what gaps are left, and how to address them.
Paul Broadhurst
Manager – 24 Hour London, Greater London Authority
It was a pleasure to work with Didobi. They delivered a comprehensive, engaging and highly visual markets report (including a summary infographic) based on gaining a detailed understanding of the markets through visits, a survey with over 400 responses and analysis of key data. Their work will help inform future activity to support the high street.
Laura Ahern
Principal Town Centre Growth Officer - Economy, Jobs and Partnerships - Housing, Regeneration and Public Realm
Great work by the Didobi team in delivering our latest ULI Asia Pacific report - Understanding the Life Sciences Sector in Asia Pacific – the Case for Investment. It rode on the success of the Life Sciences report published by ULI Europe, which was also conducted by the Didobi. It was a very collaborative process and well managed by the Didobi team. Their deep industry knowledge and experience brought added value to the research project.
May Chow
Senior Vice President, ULI Asia Pacific
ULI has collaborated with Didobi to research a crucial topic for the European real estate industry looking at Understanding the Life Sciences Sector: The Case for Real Estate Investment. Supported by ULI and a steering group consisting of the project’s funders, Didobi undertook the work, by surveying and interviewing ULI members and experts, collecting data and market views, to ensure that a wide range of opinions could be considered. The resulting report, which has been well received by the industry, provides a comprehensive overview of the sector.
Lisette van Doorn
Chief Executive


The IPF seeks to enhance the understanding of real estate as an asset class and raise awareness of issues that may have far-reaching consequences for property investment. These objectives are exemplified by Didobi’s work for the IPF Research Programme on two recent studies: Operational Real Estate Risk and Reward and Global Capital Flows in a World of Increasing Nationalism & Protectionism.
