“Working with the BSG team was incredibly valuable for our business. At the time, we were considering a key strategic initiative and needed to know how to think about this new market from a segmentation and positioning standpoint. From day one, the team was very professional -­ from our first in-person meeting, to the weekly updates, to the final presentation. I have worked for a consulting company in the past and the caliber of the BSG is second to none”

          - Jonathan Miller, Element Bars

“Our experience with the BSG team was extremely positive. Our business faced a very specific challenge, one which to date we hadn't had the resources to properly analyze. The Booth team quickly got up to speed, methodically broke down and assessed the best potential solutions, and presented those findings clearly and concisely as a final project deliverable. During the course of the project, they were professional yet friendly, insightful, and they hit every deadline they committed to. The team was a joy to work with. Should another opportunity arise, I wouldn't hesitate to engage them again.“

          - Michael O'Shea, Chelsea & Scott

“I thought the team was incredibly professional, as was the engagement manager. The Booth team was also incredibly creative in how they approached the problem, and had new insights that I had not considered -- and this is from someone who has been thinking about this problem for a while. The level of work and the quality of the quantitative analysis was excellent.”
