Project Management

We conduct market research for clients in a variety of industries including foods and beverages, personal care, home/pet care, pharmaceuticals, and digital services.

Advertising Claims Support

We have supported our clients' advertising claims for more than 25 years.  Our services include consulting, defensible product tests and consumer perception surveys. We provide expert witnessing in National Advertising Division (NAD) and litigated cases for many product categories.



Our clients rely on us to help them convert raw ideas into innovation, to navigate the complex world of advanced analytics and machine learning, to develop the basis for advertising claims, or simply to design better experiments and explore new techniques.



We use innovative teaching methods to bring course material alive and put our participants into practical situations as they learn and apply new ideas. Learning opportunities include annual short courses, quarterly webinars, and internal, customizable training.

Annual course topics include the science of measuring sensory differences, Drivers of Liking®, claims substantiation, and advanced analytics, including machine learning. We can bring these courses to you, teach them virtually, or you can join us for memorable events at great locations.
