"The Royal Society of Chemistry commissioned Bernie to undertake a large piece of market segmentation. We received an unexpectedly large response and Bernie worked hard to analyse, collate and report for us. We are very pleased with the outcomes which will prove extremely useful as we move forward."
Hannah Baldwin, Head of Global Marketing, Royal Society of Chemistry

“The MIT Press engaged Bernie to conduct a landscape analysis of the international academic library market in advance of the launch of the Press’s ebook platform.  At the conclusion of the assignment, she provided us with a remarkably comprehensive report that provided the Press with critical market insights and trenchant recommendations.  It was clear that she was deeply committed to this project and is sensitive to the complexity and opportunities inherent in the scholarly publishing environment.  We are pleased to endorse the research and consulting services offered by Bernie.” 
Terry Ehling, Director of Strategic Initiatives, MIT Press

"Bernie was recommended to us as a potential facilitator for a focus group we ran in November 2015. She was great to work with, providing advice and feedback beforehand on the format, content and structure of the session. On the day, she ran the group efficiently, keeping the discussion moving and covering all the key topics, and very much created an atmosphere that encouraged engagement from all the participants. The report Bernie provided us with following the focus group was detailed and thorough."
