They continue to deliver high quality with commitment and cost-effectiveness."

"We engaged Universal Consulting for a market landscape and assessment initiative as well as for the development of an implementation plan. Our expectations of the deliverables were quite high, having worked previously with numerous strategy consulting firms. UC more than surpassed our expectations as they provided detailed insights on facets of the market(s) that we had neglected to appreciate. The firm's strength resides in their ability to interpret our ideas; develop a thorough project scope; and synthesise complex primary and secondary data. As future projects arise, we will consider working with Universal as our strategy partner."

"We have had the opportunity to work with Universal Consulting on 2 assignments to foray into areas we were currently not present in. They have done an excellent job engaging key stakeholders to understand our requirements in great detail, before initiating their assignment. The team was very patient in interacting with us at every stage of the assignment, and did course corrections as required. There was genuine interest within the UC team to ensure that we address all aspects; business, commercial and technical, through the assignment. They were very practical in their suggestions and very thorough in their research, which helped us modulate our final strategy. We look forward to working with the UC team for future assignments."
