Management Consulting Testimonials

Alan Kaplan’s input was always creative but based on a sound understanding of the situation and strategy and unfailingly well received. Alan always provided a handsome return on investment.

My appreciation of Alan goes beyond my admiration for his rare intellect, considerable skills and the breadth and depth of his experience. More than this, I have always valued the highly principled way in which he approaches his work and his immaculate integrity.

Alan is one of the most astute marketers I know.

Anthony J Rattey - Communications Manager, EDS

During my time at AC Nielsen Alan Kaplan and I interfaced on several occasions and I was always impressed by his knowledge of research and industriousness. So much so that AC Nielsen, on my direction commissioned Alan to undertake projects on our behalf, the results of which we were more than happy with.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Alan.

B W Mc Millan - Former CEO, AC Nielsen

The Quality of input and service that we have received from Alan Kaplan has, at all times, been of the highest standard and there is no doubt that he has contributed significantly to the growth and achievement that our business has realised over the last ten years to the point where the company is now entrenched as the leader in Environmental Health.

John Sturgess - Marketing Manager, Aventis Environmental Science

Alan Kaplan handled our account with dedication and was always available when we required information either to do with marketing, projects or other matters. My staff all knew that Alan was always 100% there for them whenever they needed anything.

Your service could not be matched by any other suppliers or service providers. Being as proactive as you are you always saw things before we did.

Over a fourteen year period our company experienced enormous growth and increased market share for all our major brands. I am sure you played a significant part in helping us achieve this level of success.

I have no hesitation in recommending you.

Ken Baranov - CEO, Kamillen Products

Alan Kaplan came highly recommended, yet still exceeded our high standards and expectations.

We were particularly impressed with his follow through and the manner in which his strategy was co-ordinated and implemented.

Alan added immense value through his interpretive skills and contributed significantly to our company’s success over time and I can thoroughly recommend Alan for consulting appropriate to his impressive qualifications, multifaceted skills and extensive business experience.

Mark Sachs - Managing Director, Sakata-Mayford

Alan has recently carried out a Brand Audit and strategy for Royal Copenhagen Ice Cream.
I wish to say that the work Alan put into this project was of such a calibre that it is hard to imagine that anyone else could rival him in any element of his endeavours.

Alan combines a superior intellect with a vast knowledge of all things to do with brand analysis.

He has taken a personal interest in this project and as a result provided a document which has far exceeded our expectations. I know that the time he has dedicated to this document is well in excess of the hours he has charged.

Working with Alan has been a pleasure and an education and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a skilful, thorough and professional service.

Phil Newling - Director, Royal Copenhagen Ice Cream Cone Company Pty Ltd

I had the pleasure of meeting Alan Branch when I first became a Director of the FCA, as Alan was finishing his term on the Board. Alan was a great support to me as I became familiar with the FCA and the functions of the Board. Since that time I have had the opportunity to spend time with Alan both in Australia and overseas as part of the Australian delegation to the IFA (International Franchise Association) Convention.

I have always found Alan to be of the highest integrity and extremely knowledgeable in the not only the legal aspects of the franchising sector, but in the broader workings and goings on within the industry. I wouldn\\\'t hesitate in recommending Alan as a lawyer or advisor to anyone within the franchise sector (franchisor or franchisee) and I have the utmost confidence that they would not only receive accurate and appropriate advice, but that it would be delivered with empathy and clarity.
