Hi Tamsin,

Just sent out the Biological Strategies report to Johnson and Johnson. I want to commend you on your efficiency and quality. I’m super impressed with your ability to take these complex chemical strategies and make them accessible and valuable to non-scientists. Great job with timeliness and working with the team to ensure we delivered a solid report. We have a rock-solid set of strategies and the J&J team is thrilled and excited for next steps.

Best, Dayna

Thanks for your uncanny ability to breeze through mountains of literature at breakneck speed, and for digging deep into technical details. You’ve worked magic with the information, and the next phases of this project are going to be fascinating as the Estee Lauder team plays with these fresh, new biomimetic concepts. They did not know what to expect and are beyond thrilled with this work.

Thanks for your hard work on a short deadline. Amazing job putting all that info together into an easy to understand summary––and distilling this complex information into deep patterns that Kimberly Clark can use. They are very excited about the potential––many novel business strategies sparked from your report. Congrats for your rock star work AND improving our processes. KUDOS.

Well done! Dayna
