“Public Knowledge delivered a professional, friendly and responsive service throughout the duration of the project. From the initial recommendations of research methodology to fit my client’s budget, to providing feedback on questions and presenting findings, they were a pleasure to work with. My tight deadlines were met without any problems and reports provided were easy to understand and provided a great insight from which to make decisions. I’ll definitely work with Public Knowledge on future research projects.”
