"It's rare to find a consultant that possesses a talent for focused strategic planning as well as a bias for strong and fast action. Activations brings both to the table. They are able to take complicated problem sets and in short order turn around solution sets that are market relevant and actionable. These guys are fast and accurate in their information and provide value
that we simply can't get in any other way."
