And thanks to our well situated Northern New Jersey location and extensive database, we are able to recruit men, women and children with diverse socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds from Bergen, Morris, Essex, Sussex and Passaic counties in NJ as well as Orange and Rockland counties in NY.  In addition, we are highly effective in recruiting low incidence groups, children and highly creative professionals.

Moderators

At Focus Inn, you are free to use your own moderators; however, if you need an experienced moderator for your project, you can tap into our team of professionals. We understand that the crucial success of focus groups is the choice of moderator.  A good moderator creates the right atmosphere within the group and skillfully guides the participants through the questions.  We take great care in matching up the appropriate moderator with each group and have a full staff of experienced moderators who have expertise with children, multicultural research, college students, adults, and healthcare professionals.  Many of our moderators are bi-lingual (Spanish, Chinese, French) and come from a variety of disciplines. In addition, our moderators are skilled in the development of focus group guides and response booklets; interview screeners and recruitment protocols; and reporting.
