Applying Sector Knowledge, Guiding Strategic Direction
Nicola was retained by Fresenius Kabi to carry out Market Research in a very complex therapeutic area. She quickly gained knowledge and insight that led to her delivering the best market research I have ever received. She is driven and demonstrates incredible tenacity. What was even more impressive was how quickly Nicola grasped one of the most complex therapeutic areas in medicine and then this allowed her to deliver market of the highest standard. Nicola shows the highest integrity and this coupled with her brilliant and inventive ideas enables her to deliver superb results. I would highly recommend Nicola to anyone that wanted in depth brilliant market research in any therapeutic area and it must be noted that when we started this project this area of medicine was completely new to Nicola.
