“I first met Lloyd at a Small Business Conference in CT and then had the opportunity to hear him speak about “Word of Mouth Advertising.” I have to say that he is an interesting man and his presentation gave all of us tremendous insight as to how much one-on-one advertising can have such an impact on your company. He is someone that I look forward to working with in the future and know that I have much to learn from.”

He invested the time necessary to collaborate with our group in advance in order to define a scope for the project that met our needs, asked pertinent questions that helped guide our decision making as the project progressed, kept us informed about the status of his work, and produced a final result that achieved all of our desired results. In addition, he did this under a very tight timeline. I would definitely utilize gl Market research again in the future.”

“Lloyd is a highly professional marketer with excellent market research and interpersonal skills. Lloyd’s expertise in market research encompasses all aspects of research projects such as: identifying the problems and informational needs of the business partners who are tasked with implementing the learning from the study; designing projects that meet the business objectives, cost effectively executing the project, developing insightful analyses that address the learning objectives and effectively communicating the key learning and implications to business partners (verbally and in writing).

While my experience working with Lloyd has primarily been related to research projects that we partnered on, I appreciate his marketing savvy and ability to effectively integrate the learning from research projects into the marketing and business plans.”

“Working with Lloyd Duggan and gL Market Research has been a wonderful experience. gL Market Research has restored my faith in ethical market research and creative marketing practices.

Always the professional, he is accessible, authentic and the firm you want by your side if you want to grow your organization or business.”
