Paul Izzo: Logit’s Three-Pronged Approach to Success

As Vice President of Sales & Business Development, Paul Izzo’s job is never boring. 

“In market research, there is a constant need for problem-solving,” he says. “Methodologies will evolve and blend more over time.” 

Paul knows success is not a one-person show. Rather, he takes a three-pronged approach that involves the right team, the right clients, and the right tools. It is also the approach that sets Logit apart from its competitors. 

The Team: Setting Ourselves Apart
Paul joined us in early March of 2020, just days before the world went into lockdown. “It was not an ideal onboarding process amidst the pandemic,” he admits. However, Paul found himself connecting with the team immediately from his home base in California.

“Project management is outstanding at Logit,” Paul recognizes. “Taking ownership and having free reign on communication and the autonomy to fully manage a project shows our total level of competency to clients.”

The Clients: Logit Across North America
For Paul, building new relationships with a variety of clients is the goal. His work is always changing, and he is always learning — another secret to keeping market research interesting. 

Alongside Chris Connolly, he is helping to broaden Logit’s presence across the North American marketplace, and this relationship building is top of mind for Paul.

He is leveraged his medical background to develop regulatory and health work for Logit, as well as oversee new and strategic sales and growth initiatives.

That said, Paul does not compromise the quality of Logit’s work for the quantity of work. While he will always listen and try to understand any needs —remaining mindful of the client’s resources for the best possible outcome — he is also adamant about knowing when to say no.

“Sometimes that’s the best service you can do for a client.”

The Tools: Logit’s Arsenal of Products and Services
With a good team in place and great clients to work for, the final piece is having the products and services to bring the two together. 

From current CATI methods to the future of Mobile360 plus a wide array of online offerings, Logit has an unrivaled ability to retrieve high-quality B2C and B2B data, while incorporating mixed-mode and more interactive research.

And much like the evolution of these tools, Paul has expanded his own skill set and offerings, incorporating Logit’s powerful and innovative tools while servicing new and established clients.

Always learning and always growing; as Paul will be the first to tell you, market research is never boring.

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted both the mental health and financial situations of a large minority of Canadians.

HALIFAX, November 5, 2020: In an ongoing effort to understand the impact of the global pandemic, Narrative Research has been asking Canadians about the impact they have experienced. The information in this release comes from two sources – the East Coast Voice online panel (including over 1,900 responses from Atlantic Canadians), and the Logit Group’s Omnibus panel (over 1,200 Canadians).

ECONOMIC IMPACTS

One-third of Canadians indicate that the COVID-19 pandemic has created economic or financial hardship for their household, with those in the Prairie Provinces and Ontario feeling the worst of it, compared with just two in ten in Quebec. The financial hit has been more acute for GenXers, Millennials and Gen Z, compared with Boomers, and not surprisingly, those with lower incomes are more likely to have been hit with financial hardship compared with those earning more.

Turning to Atlantic Canada in particular, one-third of residents indicate that they or someone in their household has applied for financial assistance programs such as Employment Insurance or emergency funding programs since the onset of COVID-19, marking an increase of 4 points since we last polled on this issue in April. Likelihood of having applied for assistance is lower in PEI compared with the other three provinces (26%, compared with 35% NL, 33% NS and 32% NB). Younger residents are by far more likely to have applied for assistance compared with older residents (49% aged 18 – 34, compared with 36% of those 35 – 54 and 23% of those 55+).

EMOTIONAL IMPACTS

Aside from the large financial impacts, the pandemic is clearly having an effect on Canadians’ mental health. Four-in-ten indicate they have experienced a major emotional or mental health hardship. Again, this sentiment is most acute in the Prairie Provinces and Ontario. By age, half of Millennials have experienced this type of hardship, compared with just three-in-ten Boomers. Those unemployed are most likely to have suffered emotionally during the pandemic.

Results shown are from a survey conducted online October 7-9, 2020, with 1,230 Canadians 18 years of age or older (972 decided adults), from the Logit Group’s Canadian Omnibus. Fielding every month, the Logit Group’s COVID-19 Omnibus surveys Canadians to ask their opinions and behaviours related to topical issues. Results were analyzed by Narrative Research. Data was weighted based on the 2016 Census, by gender, age, and region to reflect these population characteristics in each province. As a non-probability sample (i.e., a panel sample where residents have joined a panel to share their opinions), and in accordance with CRIC Public Opinion Research Standards, a margin of error is not applied.   

Additional Atlantic Canadian results are derived from an online survey conducted from September 24-29, 2020, with 1,911 Atlantic Canadians, 18 years of age or older, from Narrative Research’s online panel, East Coast Voice. This sample included responses from each Atlantic province (NB: 571; NS: 914; NL: 288; PE: 138). Using data from the 2016 Census, the results were weighted by gender, age, and region to reflect these population characteristics in each province.
