Philippa Neal

Senior Research Executive

As a Senior Research Executive, Philippa’s responsibilities are far ranging, from liaising with clients and developing research methodologies to conducting primary and secondary research and delivering final insight reports. In her time at MHM Philippa has managed projects for a number of clients including the National Trust, Royal Collection Trust and the British Film Institute. She also currently manages rolling visitor research at the Royal Academy of Arts, the National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery.

From market appraisals to exhibition evaluations, she is adept at working with both quantitative and qualitative data. Philippa’s strengths lie in her forensic approach, getting to the heart of issues and challenging hypotheses. She also has a keen eye for detail, design and data visualisation, fuelled by her desire to enrich people’s experiences with arts, heritage and culture.

Philippa developed these skills and her passion for the cultural sector during her undergraduate years reading Music at the University of Birmingham and later at Goldsmiths College, London, studying for a Masters in Cultural Policy, Diplomacy and Arts Administration.
