"Chris and his team are top professionals in this field, they delivered on time and on budget, with the final product being the best piece of pre-business planning a company could hope for. Their ability to depict and model innovation opportunities from all angles is quite simply phenomenal! An outstanding piece of work." Paolo di Vincenzo, VP, Global Marketing, Systagenix


"It was important we put into place a driver of a different way of thinking. Umio made a lot of people to think differently about user needs. it allowed different parts of the organisation to come together and understand users in a different way, leading to the successful development of several new ostomy care products." Peter Kragh, Head of TPP, Ostomy Care, Coloplast.


"You’ve gathered a phenomenal amount of information which will be highly valuable to the programme. Everyone back here has been rushing over this afternoon to ask me how it all went and I’ve had nothing but praise for your efforts so far. It has been a massive learning opportunity for me too in terms of wound management, challenges faced, healthcare set-up and last but not least, the Umio methodology.” Gillian Brydon, ITI Scotland


"Chris delivers great tools for those looking to ensure their new product development, commercial and design path is right from the start ... if not earlier." Andrew Tubb, Global Diabetes Director, Sanofi
