WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Direction First were a joy to work with. They really took the time to listen and understood our challenges and objectives. They delivered amazing insights as a result and I cannot speak highly enough of their work ethic and professionalism. I would recommend Direction First to any company that really wants to understand their consumers.
All the members of the team were a pleasure to work with and provided good quality thought into the design and delivery of the results despite the short timeline. Carolina continues to deliver great reports and actionable recommendations for our business. She was very organised from start to finish and was able to accommodate our supply delays to still deliver on time. It’s great to work with her.
Direction First were very professional, responsive to our needs, were quick to understand our business, thorough with good attention to detail, flexible to adapt and personable to deal with on a human level. We had some IT issues with the survey and DF didn’t shy away, rather they were committed to working with us to sort through them. We appreciated their efforts and valued their insights from the project.
We really had a lot of breakthrough moments and breakthrough understanding with our consumer. There were some ‘aha’ moments for the business and there were some corporate, consumer and brand myths that we debunked through this research that were very exciting.
Longer engagement with the audience, participants were able to pause and think about their responses as well as providing spontaneous feedback. It also allowed users to engage at any time that suited them.
Great team, innovative brief and location as well as fast turnaround for the debrief. Really clear guidance on next steps plus lots of useful understanding around health beyond just this project.
Great work by Direction First, the team seemed invested in making this work for us – or working with us on the project rather than simply reporting results.
Erica, Carolina and the team have been responsive and professional throughout our project, going beyond their scope to help solve problems and steward the process. I would highly recommend them.
Direction First bent over backwards to meet timings and delivered a great deck that answered all our questions.
Direction First have been a wonderful organisation to work with because they have been very involved, open and communicative from the beginning to the end. They have stuck to their timelines and the best and most unexpected outcome from this research are the actions that we can implement as opposed to just another white elephant that every other organisation supplies.
Extremely quick turnaround given the time frame; Steve was helpful/hands on throughout the whole process; the report gave us some great insights into the true feelings of our fleet customers. Very happy thank-you.
Direction First are a pleasure to work with – knowledgeable, responsive and great consultants.
Clear and thoughtful insights; demonstrated understanding of the business challenges and strategic issues, as well as communications. Very well presented.
Carolina is very responsive and flexible and delivered excellent service that added value beyond the terms of reference leading to being awarded more projects.
Thorough, focused, attentive and comprehensive with the ability to distil findings into value add approaches. Professional, proactive and in-tune with our goals. Flexible, efficient and collaborative
