What our clients say
Natalie is a gem if you would pardon the pun. Natalie and her team are highly professional, very dedicated and as a result their analysis is thorough and they provide detailed insights. Within a tight timeframe they provided us with professionally researched information for inclusion in our business plan. We would not have been able to have put together such a detailed business plan without them.
We used gemaker for their in-depth sector-specific knowledge and proven success communicating and engaging across research, industry and government. gemaker does not just take the information given and present it nicely, but takes the time to make sure that opportunities are not missed and the distilled information is accurate and aligned to the target sector.
gemaker’s strategic planning services were clear, thorough and excellent.
DeadlyScience has truly appreciated Natalie’s support with the creation and implementation of our Strategic Plan.
Natalie’s guidance in targeting specific areas for us to focus on and facilitating this process has been a major gamechanger for the direction of our charity as we expand our board and team of staff.
I engaged gemaker as an external service provider to develop a Research Engagement Plan. gemaker were thorough, flexible and responsive and able to adapt to deliver the outcome that was right for us as the client. I was impressed by the approach and style of the team and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
