Anytime you start working with new associates, it’s difficult to find the perfect combination of my 5 P’s; professional, proactive, proficient, persistent and passionate.

Building Main Contractor

Director

There is no comparison to what Octopus does

“There is no comparison to what Octopus does. Amazing how much Intelligence you found. It was interesting seeing Big 4 firms putting together their reports. Everyone expects these providers to charge a premium fee for their name. The quality of the work is always poor, but justified by the decision-maker as “If one of the Big 4 provide this then others couldn’t do any better” What they don’t have that you do have, is the credibility and ability to harvest information they can’t provide in the field of market intelligence gathering”.
