"I was gob smacked, very impressed. I was absolutely amazed by the benchmarking process. It was easy to do, comprehensive and we were overwhelmed by the results. There is no downside, unless you can’t take criticism."
Emma MacDonald, The Bay Tree Food Company

"We were looking to address specific issues around marketing and profitability. The benchmarking was superb. The outputs were very good and identified the areas we had to address. The board tracks and reviews the targets on a monthly basis and we plan to use the diagnosis as a regular part of our internal processes."
