“Whilst attending an investment briefing with both investment bankers and VC members, there was a need for strong and insightful telecommunications industry information that provided solid facts on the competitive arena and where the technology trend is moving to. From fourteen people in the room, four mentioned Shara Evans and she was additionally supported by five others. I was intrigued to find Shara’s work and meet her. I was impressed with the great work that Shara and her company – Market Clarity – provide. They have a substantial edge on anything else available that I have come across both here and many years abroad.”
