We found our workshop with Greg and Catalina very useful and engaging. They did a great job of adjusting on the fly to the experience level of the group, and used participants’ questions to guide much of what we covered. Greg’s deep experience with the subject matter and skills as a presenter kept the training informative and never boring.

Greg’s really helped prepare our students for extremely difficult operations. His understanding of research methods and skill as an instructor and mentor has given them the confidence to excel during deployments. Greg has supported eight of our courses, and I hope he’ll support another eighty.

Social Research Solutions provided two trainings for staff in Community Affairs across the Federal Reserve System. The first was in conducting focus groups and the second in applied research design. In each training they were professional, engaging and well prepared. The materials we used were helpful and we had the opportunity to apply what we were learning to a current research project, making it all the more relevant and useful. Emily and Greg are great trainers with extensive experience in research design and methodology.

It was a pleasure to work with you! Thanks again for the amazing training and technical assistance that you provided to EngenderHealth staff and consultants in Tanzania and in New York. Your expertise in study design, data collection, analysis, and software analysis packages was invaluable. I was most impressed with your deep knowledge of theory and reproductive health subject matter coupled with skillfulness in applied research that was immediately useful in improving program design.

Virtual Access Ltd. has benefited immensely from the expertise of Greg Guest since 2002. During this period he has trained nearly 40 of our staff in various aspects of social research including ethics, research design, sampling techniques, and both quantitative and qualitative data collection methods. He has also trained our staff in participant observation techniques. Greg’s style in training has led Virtual Access to become one of the leading research institutions in the area of formative research in Ghana. His experience in training enables him to conduct these training sessions in a smooth way for participants to understand and apply in the field.

Greg’s training style perfectly met our needs in Malawi. He was culturally sensitive and able to make complex research concepts accessible to all of our participants. I felt our field staff were much better prepared and competent in their research skills thanks to Greg’s training.

Greg is a wonderful mentor. I cannot thank him enough for his patience and generosity in helping me learn the ins-and-outs of research and publishing. His insight, support, and enthusiasm make it easy to find common ground across disciplinary boundaries and uncover new territory for research. He's an invaluable source of expertise for me. I hope we continue working together as I begin my research career.

I worked with Greg to put together a grant that would train a group of academic librarians on research design. I was impressed with how he listened to what I wanted the participants to learn, and then delivered an impressive curriculum, on time. I value a team member who is responsive, professional, and knowledgeable; Greg is all of those.

When we offer classes instructed by Greg Guest, we always fill the classes and have excellent feedback. Students value that Greg and his staff make the classes practical to their work environment and enjoy the group interaction fostered in his classes. I would highly recommend classed offered by Greg Guest and his staff.

Greg and his colleagues worked with our field team to design and carry out site assessment and community engagement activities in preparation for a clinical trial in Nigeria. They traveled to the site and provided comprehensive and engaging training in data collection, management, and analysis for our field staff. Once they were back in the States, Greg's team continued to provide technical assistance and was accessible and responsive whenever questions or unforeseen challenges arose. They were great to work with!
