Our clients speak for themselves

Our brand development work with affordable housing developers involves a high degree of community engagement throughout the process. Maureen has helped us lead groups and interpret findings. Her ability to put group members at ease and encourage conversation is a benefit to our iterative work. I recommend her.

Our organization is going through a name change, and we brought on Maureen to moderate three focus groups as part of our research process. Maureen was a dream to work with. Her expertise was immediately apparent in our first meeting to discuss the project. She helped guide our research question development, advised on participant recruitment, and moderated the three focus group sessions. We were on a very tight timeline, and Maureen was able to work within our constraints and was quick to respond to any questions or changes that came up along the way. Her expert facilitation in the focus group moderation led to incredibly productive discussions, she handled some challenging participants with ease, made sure every participant was heard and engaged, and we came out with the information we needed to aid in our big decision.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Ladley & Associates for any of your consumer research needs!

Whitney Grover

“Ladley & Associates was an integral part of our marketing team for the Alameda County, Department of Public Health, Nutrition Services campaign. Prior to our team starting on the project, the county had done a lot of research with the target audience around the subject matter of the campaign and Maureen helped us analyze that research to create targeted campaign concepts. She then conducted two focus groups, one youth and one adult to test the campaign concepts and did an excellent job in facilitating those and eliciting the information we needed to hone the advertising content. Maureen’s professionalism, warmth, knowledge, and creativity were key to the success of the final campaign.”

Natalie Brecher

“Maureen and her team helped us figure out how best to market our fundraising bike ride. Her in-depth survey revealed what appealed to people about the ride. I thought our marketing was already pretty good, but Maureen and her team helped us focus our messaging on our target audience’s needs and desires, and not just our organization’s mission. We were able to double our ridership, thanks to Maureen’s research and advice.”

“Throughout my career, the most successful projects from a sales velocity standpoint and the ones I’m most proud of, are the ones where I took the time to do extensive consumer and market research before developing the land and housing. Your research adeptly pointed out the sweet spot.”
