Hello there,

I’m Matt Barnes

Bowler, singer, and real ale enthusiast

A little bit of what I do

I head up IFF’s Business & Enterprise sector, delivering a wide range of work exploring and evaluating government efforts to encourage enterprise and innovation, as well as reduce regulatory burden. I also look after Business Spotlight, IFF’s business omnibus.

What I’ve achieved

I joined IFF in 2014 having spent several years at Ipsos MORI and the National Audit Office. Since then, I have delivered business research of all shapes and sizes for BEIS, UK Research & Innovation, Companies House, the British Business Bank, DCMS, the Home Office, the MoD, the Department for International Trade, and the Welsh Government.
