Anna and the team at BlueSalt Consulting provided strategic advice and expertise to develop our initial (and somewhat vague) concept into a clearly articulated and evidence-based initiative.
We were impressed by their professionalism and ability to deliver excellent solutions, and highly recommend them.
Anna and her team delivered a responsive, professional service, providing quality reports on complex matters. With a strong understanding of government processes and systems, they bring a practical and results-focused approach and were easy to work with.
Anna and her team did an outstanding job in researching and writing a feasibility study for my business, Collabs Scientific Services. They deeply analysed the market data and business case, and carried out in-depth research, and when we found that part of my original conceptual idea wasn’t financially advantageous, they suggested and platformed a number of possible solutions and better directions to take. I don’t hesitate to recommend them.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Your analysis would have to be one of the most comprehensive and well-written reports I have read in a long time, well-done.
Having worked with BlueSalt Consulting over the years, it is apparent that the passion, knowledge and expertise that Anna brings to the table is significant. We have engaged Anna for multiple projects and, at all times, they have been delivered on time, within budget and often exceeding expectations.
Anna and her team consistently deliver professional work and solutions that reflect their commitment to excellence and practicality.
They represent a great example of a regional business striving to deliver excellent results for their clients.
