“Nick Black represents a new breed of marketing researcher. He utilizes the innovative tool of morphology to bring a new perspective to consumer research. As a presenter at our conference in 2008 he had the audience on the edge of their seats. He guided them through the process, analysis and then utilization of the information that ultimately would bring them closer to their customers. I would highly recommend him and I look forward to working with him again.”
- Paula Gray, Vice-President & Co-Founder, AIPMM

“If you are considering engaging Nick to speak to your group, book him now! Nick presented at the MN QRCA Chapter meeting in March, 2012 in Minneapolis and I was so glad to have attended. His presentation style is interactive, entertaining and brimming with highly actionable information. His topic, “The Six Drivers of Trust” helped me understand the ethereal, physiological brain response to trust signals and the other, tangible evidence that builds trust – which is vital to establishing, growing, and maintaining client relationships.” 

- Rosemary Sundin, President, Orman Guidance Research
