"I have found that Michelle and the entire Marketivity team are first-class communicators. Since their work focuses on studying the subjective and abstract, this is perhaps the key to their success. I have been so impressed with Marketivity’s commitment to and quality of communication that I have used them as an example for my own client leaders to learn from."

Marketivity was very thorough, efficient and, as an independent company, we believe they returned better results than we would have gotten in-house."

"Marketivity has been a trusted advisor as we navigated the A/E/C waters with our firm since 1999. With a high-quality Customer Satisfaction Survey initially, we were able to reinforce our strengths and implement changes to remove challenges, all as seen by our clients. We have since worked successfully with Marketivity on other strategic planning assignments, all well-done, with care and thoughtful responses. We highly recommend Marketivity."

Michelle’s and Marketivity’s services have provided great value to PSOMAS’s client development and project pursuit program."
Julie Shepard, CPSM, ENV SP
"Katy and Michelle were a delight to work with on our client survey. They effectively facilitated the whole client engagement process, including designing the survey questions, interviewing our clients, recording the responses and synthesizing the results with go-forward recommendations. Their knowledge of the A/E industry allowed them to reach beyond superficial observations and explore substantive issues of critical importance to SMRT. We would definitely hire them again."
