    I would have no hesitation to recommend Denis to anyone as a perfect business consultant. From helping me shape the business model for the start-up all the way to giving me effective advice on what is the best way to pitch my business idea, Denis really helped me get everything I want. I received more than 30 proposals shortly after I posted my job, but Denis was the only one who identified what I needed based on the short description of the job. Of course I hired him and he never failed my expectations. He helped me design good surveys, find the best way to analyse the data collected, select the best marketing and sales strategies, create realistic financial models and practice the pitch. He provided a logical way to solve every problem step by step, focused on details and spotted immediately what was missed there. Most importantly, he was extremely efficient, making every second of working together worthwhile. Without Denis?s help, I can never reach this stage and start my own company. I hope I can work with Denis in the future every time I need business advice.
