Roddy Fisher, Customer Introductions International
Donna and Investment Resources came recommended to me, in my need to engage a resource to provide market research services, for my client, a UK based design agency, interested in knowing the size and dynamics of the US medical device manufacturing industry. From the initial set up meeting, and through her regular updates, Donna provided detailed insight to the supplied brief, as well as additional articulate thinking and introductions to key people of value to the project. I thoroughly recommend the services of Investment Resources, not only for extrapolating the required data requested, but also for bringing meaning to the findings, and introducing unconsidered, exciting possibilities for the client.
Client 3: Consulting and Process Improvement Firm
- Who: Project Manager
- Challenge: The client was faced with a project workload that meant deadlines were approaching without all of the resources needed to complete the project.
- Action: Investment Resources provided an industry analysis, with a report detailing all of the options available that could be presented to the client on a turnkey basis with no additional edits or corrections.
- Result: The client was pleased with the results, and proceeded to the next level of the project with the assurance that their choices had been validated with realistic data.

Donna was indispensable to a project that for me anyway, lied in uncharted territory. She brought to this project her years of experience & judgement, attention to detail and a can-do attitude that made her worth every penny I paid her. I highly recommend Donna for these qualities… and more!
