I assess all our findings (science-based or non-science based) for how they impact the overall business objective/issue. If the particular science is relevant to the business issue/objective at-hand then that science’s impact is assessed against its value to the market (which the client is targeting) and how it compares to the competitorsWhat do you like about working with clients?

Speaking to executives from different companies, different cultures, different locations and different backgrounds allows a lot of learning.
