CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

As the Chief Economist for Cisco Consulting Services, I have had the privilege of being the project manager for three BCS projects. Over the several years that BCS has been working with Cisco, our department has come to rely on BCS for specific projects where both an expert outside opinion is needed and where BCS has specific expertise, such as on social media issues.

I have found the BCS teams to be a pleasure to manage given their brainpower, initiative and friendliness. Often, my own work commitments forced me to reduce the amount of direction I was able to provide to the team. This was not a problem, as the BCS teams showed immense flexibility and were able to successfully continue their work effort independently. Their work products have been used frequently to help with our business strategy and customer segmentation efforts.

I highly recommend BCS to anyone wishing to develop an adjunct consulting team.
— Doug Handler, Chief Economist at Cisco Systems
From cofounder to project manager to advisor to client, I’ve been involved with BCS every step of the way, and the quality of the work, members, and organization continues to surpass my highest expectations. In my latest role as a client at Andreessen Horowitz, the work BCS has done has been crucial to providing us with insight and analysis that we couldn’t have done on our own. They are THE #1 organization to work with at Cal if you need a group of smart students to work on an interesting project.
— Sebastian Cua, Partner at Andreessen Horowitz
This year, the Adobe Students team had the pleasure of working with Berkeley Corporate Solutions. We were immediately impressed by their professionalism and background knowledge of our product, and were eager to work with them on a real project that was impacting our business. While only meeting a couple of times during the course of a quarter, we were blown away with the depth and quality of their work. BCS treated our business as if it was their own. They took the time to conduct thorough market research prior to formulating and presenting their strategy. This resulted in highly relevant, well-thought out recommendations - many of which were fresh ideas that our team hadn’t even thought of. We are currently working to execute the recommendations that BCS presented to us. Their advice has been invaluable, and we look forward to working with them on another project in the future.
— Georgie May, Senior Marketing Manager at Adobe
