My Favourite Tipples are shared by Anja Thygesen, a specialist in Scandinavian research and corporate intelligence. She shares some of her go-to resources in the field of macroeconomic and worldwide company data as well as non-work resources from cooking to art.
As an independent researcher, I work on very different projects. I do both market and competitive intelligence projects - often together with my pan-European research colleagues from OneAnswer and their networks. I am also engaged in recruiting projects which go hand-in-hand with my research skills. As I often have to get from zero to 100 in no time, I use Google (of course) and Wikipedia, which I find is getting better and better.
My colleague Irene Koren and I have developed a training series for consultants, people in business development and others with interest in improving their researching skills. Our participants are often surprised by the functionalities of Google advanced search and the possibilities of changing the results page to 100 results instead of just 10. I always use these to optimise my Google searching.
In all types of projects, I use LinkedIn a lot, to research companies and people and for finding experts. The advanced search on Linkedin Recruiter Lite is quite good - and you can find some of the same functionalities if you use the filter functions in the standard version of LinkedIn.
Here are some other sources I use frequently:
