Client Testimonials

Marina is an excellent research partner, reliable and informative. Marina was happy to work on a project with Pye Tait for Scottish Government that had already started. She picked it up and completed it within tight timescales to the satisfaction of the client and ourselves. Highly recommended.  
                             Miranda Pye, Director, Pye Tait Consulting

I've been fortunate to have commissioned or worked alongside Marina on several occasions over the last 20 years. ‎If you want a thorough and excellent critical analysis, a project delivered to deadline, budget and unexpectedly high level of quality  guidance and advice on assessment tools and techniques then look no further.
Anne Harper, AFH Consulting
Marina has been working with the Academic Team, has been involved in a number of diverse activities and supporting the team in a variety of different ways including updating and redrafting a variety of CTH policies, carrying out mapping projects, and conducting writer training on multiple choice question writing. Particularly invaluable was her support in our work on a successful Ofqual audit.
We are really impressed with Marina’s thoroughness and professionalism; she is extremely organised and a self-starter. Her depth of knowledge based on many years within related businesses has helped us in many ways. Marina has a way of describing things that are easily understood and easy to implement.

"We have worked with Pareas Associates on projects relating to our international students and overseas representatives.  Their evident neutrality elicited valuable information on the basis of which we were able to both adapt our approaches “on the fly” and plan our future activities more systematically.  We were very grateful for the care and sensitivity with which our relationships with students and business partners were handled during the research, and for the helpful way in which oral and written reports were tailored to our needs."
Bob Masterton, former Director, International Centre, University of the Arts London
"I have worked with Pareas Associates on many occasions over the past ten years. I have found Pareas Associates to be considerably helpful, reliable and trustworthy to undertake assignments by quickly summarising and identifying the needs and achieving the outcomes within the timescales outlined. The organisation is both strategic and practical, setting and achieving realistic objectives, implementing the outcomes within agreed timescales.  The personnel are genuine, down to earth people who deliver beyond the call of duty, they are innovative, up to date and professional at all times."
