We set out with a clear vision - to be the world's best B2B research agency. We designed a logo (we're still a little bit embarrassed about).
We moved from a kitchen table into our first office, bang in the heart of Central London.
We saw ourselves nominated for Best New Agency at the MRS Awards. Around the same time, we completed our 100th project.
We recruit our first employee, Bex, now the England U21 football team's psychologist.
We launch the B2B Barometer - the State of the Nation study for the B2B marketing community. The same year, we also designed the MRS's inaugural course on B2B market research.
We were one of the first research agencies to be awarded ISO 20252 quality accreditation.
We win a MiAward for insight, as well as moving to new offices in London's Southbank to house up to 30 lovely Circlers.
We have 25% of our turnover from global clients spanning 10 countries, from Japan to Jamaica.
We win the RAR award for best research agency and are highly commended at the B2B marketing awards.
Our international services are taken to the next level with our experience now spanning over 100 countries.
We win two BMA awards and become highly commended as the best place to work at the MRS awards.
Five of the top 10 Business Superbrands are now clients, as are many Fortune 500 brands like Google, Amazon, Verizon, Microsoft, Merck and CBRE.
Our first part-time dog, Fleur, appointed on a salary of hugs and treats.
We win Best Agency at the MRS Awards and launch the Circle Research scholarship to support students with a passion for marketing.
We became part of the Next15 family. We also opened up shop in the USA.
