"Thanks, Stellar Research, for the great quiz that you customized for my business. Stellar Research created a quiz that helps people even before they contact us in person. The quiz helps them understand how best to protect their intellectual property, by trademark, copyright and/or patent application. This increases the comfort level of new clients and helps us save time by providing them a detailed protection strategy more efficiently."Barbara Luther, Patent Attorney, The Luther Law Firm, Scottsdale, AZ
Trainer Linda Costello was able to improve her workshop using her Stellar business intelligence results.
"I was most impressed with the care and expertise that went into creating the quiz. We talked quite a bit about the right tactics to get the most meaningful results. And the results were just awesome. I could see exactly how people improved from BEFORE the weekend workshop until AFTER they left the workshop. The improvement was significant. It means the world to me that I can have tangible evidence of the transformational effects of the work I offer to my clients. I highly recommend Stellar Research to anyone who wants to track the results of their work.”Linda Costello, Wholistic Prosperity, Phoenix, AZ

Combining high level science, a strong management team, defensible IP, and significant demand, Stellar Research has the opportunity to disrupt the marketplace for measuring and managing customer/client satisfaction. I put a lot of faith in Val both personally and professionally!”
