Meet The Team
From The Beginning
Ingenium Research was established in June 2017 by Andrew License and Anna Edwards to continue the important work in the Night Time Economy and other industries from an Australian base, following their relocation to Melbourne in 2015.
In early 2018, Terry Bevan joined the team as a Director and provides valuable insight and contributions to projects. We collaborate with a number of partners and associates in Australia and abroad.

Andrew worked closely with Terry Bevan to develop the Night Mix Index (NMI) for measuring the economic impact of night time economies in the UK. He later assisted in its transition to the Australian market, where it was used in the first ever Cost Benefit Study of a night time economy in 2010, for City of Sydney Council.

Terry is a London School of Economics educated Businessman-Economist who has been CEO and General Manager in a number of international blue-chip companies.
In 2009 he created the Night Mix Index (NMI) model for measuring the night time economy in collaboration with Alistair Turnham of MAKE Associates.
The NMI has been used now in well over 40 research projects across the UK, Australia and New Zealand. It is referenced by UK government departments and other local government bodies such as the City of Westminster and the Greater London Authority.
Following the introduction of the NMI in the UK, Terry led the successful conversion of the methodology to the Australian market, The Sydney Cost Benefit Analysis in 2010 was followed by multiple iterations of measuring the Australian NTE. Terry led the City of Westminster Cost Benefit Analysis of the NTE in 2012 in a consistent methodological approach.
