“NEAS Australia has partnered with BONARD on development and delivery of our 2022 Member Engagement Survey. This collaboration was productive and the team at BONARD was professional, attentive and delivered an exceptional outcome. NEAS utilised this process to develop our three-year strategy for 2023–2026. I have also worked closely with BONARD to develop qualitative and quantitative analysis of activities of QALEN – the Quality Assurance Language in Education Network – helping this consortium to collect data on its member activities to inform discussion at our annual symposia. I highly recommend engagement with BONARD as a survey or data collection partner.”

“The BONARD team does a great job of choosing and screening agencies to participate in their events. What always strikes me working with BONARD is the very depth of the agent pool. We really see some emerging opportunities from this event.”

“Everybody is so excited about how the Trade Mission event went. Thanks so much to BONARD for organizing such an incredible event. The agents were of such good quality, knowledgable, which really makes our job easier, as we do not need to start from the beginning.”
“We found the Agent Introductions extremely positive. The screening and vetting of the agents were very well done. It felt that every agency we met knew who we were and understood our goals and objectives. Conversations were aligned from the very beginning, leading to very productive meetings.”
