Global Consumer Device Company
It has been a real pleasure working with you both. I look forward to future opportunities to collaborate together, hopefully on a more defined project/need and under better circumstances than these COVID times. Thank you for all the great learnings, mapping, the partnership collaboration and flexibility through this past program and for being open to future opportunities. It has been a real pleasure working with you.
Product Marketing Manager
Chemical Device Company
Nigel and Lucy were very helpful on my early stage innovation project for a potential spin-out idea. Initially, they worked closely with us to identify specific questions and target companies. Throughout the process they were always in touch to ensure that their output was meeting our needs. Finally, they collected all their research into a clear concise presentation to help move the project forward. You provide a powerful insight; someone we knew already but you have highlighted important things that we hadn't thought about. Thank you.
Global Scientific Device Development Company
I engaged you because I believe in your team, your value proposition and what you stand for. You impressed me with your knowledge and skills. The numbers also came in where I hoped. You are clearly interested in the problem and passionate about getting the insight I needed. I get what I am paying for – the skills, experience and your availability to deliver; I like that I am getting the two people [to do the work] who have impressed me.
VP, Advanced Materials
Russell Group University
Nigel and Lucy have been incredibly professional and courteous in a series of typical and onerous halts to work due to process and infrastructure. That professionalism has been much appreciated and the work could not have been completed without it. The work itself is comprehensive and will be useful in our case study preparation. Overall, the reports that have been produced will significantly improve the case studies that they were commissioned to support… They have been great at building trust with our stakeholders.
