On this page we provide free downloads to some of our reports that are in the public domain or otherwise unencumbered by confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements (see Note 1 below).
The idea is to make useful information available and to provide examples of the kind of work that we have undertaken in the past and are capable of doing again.

Note 1: We take confidentiality extremely seriously as one of the fundamental platforms of our reputation and our approach. These selected reports are not encumbered by confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements; in all cases they are archived work and not covered by any existing contract. In places they have been redacted or abridged to remove any references to clients or client proprietary information. Others are already in the public domain via websites. We always try to seek approval from clients before referencing the work.
