Participant testimonial Qualitative Data Analysis

Susan Milton

"If you're looking for a workshop on analysing qualitative data that delivers both immediate and long-term results, look no further. I found the combination of expert guidance, group discussions, and practical exercises to be extremely beneficial. The individual feedback provided on my own research project was particularly valuable and has already had a positive impact on my work. The digital teaching materials are excellent and will serve as a helpful resource in the future. You can tell that Susanne Friese draws on a wealth of experience, and her insights and guidance are second to none. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone seeking to improve their research skills and achieve better results."

From the Desk of the Qeludra Founder


Dear friend,

Are you tired of struggling with your research projects? Do you feel you're missing out on key insights and opportunities because you don't have the right skills and tools?

I understand your pain because I was in the same boat. Back in 1987, I was studying Home Economics and Nutrition at a German University, but life took an unexpected turn when I caught the R(esearch) virus. Despite this setback, I was determined to continue my academic journey.

But - my passion for research, induced by the virus, grew stronger every day. I continued to hone my research skills, and eventually, for my Master's thesis at Oregon State University, I focused on the mystery behind impulsive shopping behaviour and shopping addiction.

I decided to collect data from surveys and conduct interviews with real-life shoppers. I managed to find fourteen brave individuals who were willing to share their stories with me. However, as I delved into the process of analysing such rich data, I quickly realised that no one has taught me the necessary skills. Undeterred, I listened closely to each interview, taking diligent notes and piecing together the information in my own unique way.

That's when I stumbled upon Dr. John Seidel and his groundbreaking software, The Ethnograph. This tool promised to revolutionize the process of data analysis, and I was blown away by the infinite possibilities it presented. This was back in 1992.

I took a bold step and approached John, eager to learn more about The Ethnograph and work for him.

And that's how my journey began, as I became a world-renowned expert in computer-aided qualitative data analysis. My early work is a testament to the lessons I learned and the growth I experienced, and I want to share my insights with you.

But here's the thing: the R-virus is a wild card, and I cannot guarantee that it won't infect you too. However, if I do, I promise you it will be a fun-filled journey filled with newfound insights and success.

So why wait? Take control of your journey today. Book a workshop, or let me help you with your projects and take a few shortcuts by benefiting from my experience.

Best regards,

Dr. Susanne Friese
