“Our retreats at Okemo, Crested Butte and Mount Sunapee went well. As fortified with the good research work you performed on our behalf, conversations surrounding the “what ifs” were certainly more productive on account of having statistically valid information to draw from. We have since had additional two-day strategic planning sessions at each resort where the Blue Ocean Strategy outcomes are being embedded in the confirmed, updated or newly minted Vision / Mission / Goals / Objective / Strategy templates. An exciting time for Okemo / Triple Peaks. We are challenging all the assumptions in keeping with what are arguably challenging times. Thanks for the effort and energy you put in to getting us to the Blue Ocean Strategy session armed with good information.”

- Ted Austin / VP Marketing, Okemo Mountain Resort, Ludlow, Vermont

“The Center for Research & Public Policy conducted various polls throughout the eight senatorial districts of Puerto Rico. An island wide sample was prepared and those interviewed were asked about what issues were most important to them and their perceptions about current events taking place on the Island. The New Progressive Party Senatorial Campaign Committee was able to use the data provided by the Center and their recommendations to help our members develop strategy and target their campaign message in a more effective manner. The results were remarkable…The work done by the Center for Research proved to be an invaluable tool in our campaign effort and was crucial to our success. We look forward to working with Jerry Lindsley and his staff in the future.”

- Hon. Charles A. Rodriquez / Former President, Senate of Puerto Rico


“The market research program that you and your colleagues at CRPP designed for the SCC helped measure the awareness of energy restructuring and gauge the effectiveness of our advertising and outreach efforts.

It was an effective campaign.”

- Andy Farmer / State Corporation Commission, Commonwealth of Virginia

“The Center for Research & Public Policy conducted five well received studies for the State of Delaware over the past three years: Radon Awareness Study and Needs Assessment Among Low-Income and Disabled Residents; Lead Awareness Study; Cultural Needs Assessment Study: Radon Programming; Home & Mortgage Professionals Lead Awareness Study, and; Lead Awareness of Elected Officials Study.

The Center provided, in each case, invaluable and objective recommendations on ways Delaware can more effectively serve the health needs of our residents.

I highly recommend The Center for Research & Public Policy for research, program evaluation, and needs assessment assignments.”

“From my first meeting with CRPP, I was impressed with their previous work for other clients and their willingness to accommodate our needs. They were extremely flexible and their response time and follow through was outstanding. I was also impressed with the knowledge their staff had to offer. The survey they designed and conducted for us was excellent and provided us the information we set out to obtain.”

“Within the context of an update of the Hospital’s strategic plan, we felt it appropriate to initiate a community needs assessment to assist us in looking at such areas as service mix, thrust of our marketing efforts and general perceptions with Washington County (Rhode Island) concerning health and social service needs. We also wanted to take a snapshot of public awareness and opinion of the Hospital, its affiliates and our continuum of care. This data will be used in the final calendar as the Hospital completes its strategic planning exercise. It also has generated useful data on target audience health care preferences, selections and awareness as well as the impact of various media and promotional outlets in influencing consumer choice…

Throughout the entire process, the Center staff acted in a timely, responsive and professional manner, assisting the Hospital in our planning, execution of the research instruments and subsequent analysis of data. We would be pleased to recommend The Center for Research & Public Policy to other interested organizations.”

- Brian L. Wallin, APR / Vice President Marketing & Community Affairs South County Hospital, Rhode Island

“We found The Center for Research & Public Policy through recommendations. They helped us refine some questions that would help us identify key, compelling messages. We did this through better understanding of what people value about marshes, and why (and if) they saw them worthy of saving. Then the Center implemented a thoroughly professional telephone survey, and we had the tabulated results within just a few weeks.

The Center for Research & Public Policy has been invaluable in their ability to quantify “where we were” and to give us marketing tools to help us reach the audience we need to inform and persuade to help us.”

- Leslie Starr / The Nature Conservancy
