Just wanted to thank you for the exceptional work in taking the group through your findings today… They found it very useful and informative…  Great job!

Sylvie BrizVisa Canada Association, Senior Product Manager, September 29, 2003

Visa.ca is live and is so much better thanks to you!

Shane Johns, Associate Director, Product Management, Bell Sympatico, February 28, 2002

Thanks again for your usability report – we especially-appreciated the quality work with such a fast turnaround time. Many changes are being applied immediately before publication.… We didn’t talk this week because the clarity of your recommendations pretty much negated the need for us to walk through them. Thanks for your great help Ilona. This has been a great “next step” in improving our online presence.

Kevin von Appen, Associate Director, Digital Media and Publications, Ontario Science Centre, January 19, 2001

 As a usability expert consulting with our team on the redevelopment of the Ontario Science Centre’s web presence, Ilona proved an invaluable resource. Her knowledge of audience research and user centred design principles helped us to both identify what our customers wanted and how our interface was succeeding (and failing!) to deliver.
Ilona in the broadest sense served as a voice for the people we were trying to reach. We listened – and as a result, our web site will become a more useful, and usable, resource. It was a pleasure to work with Ilona and we look forward to doing it again soon.

Hugh Stuart, President, Excite Canada, November 20, 2000

Ilona I thought the [presentation of usability results] meeting went well. Thanks for all of your work. …As for the future, I would not hesitate bringing new opportunities to you… although earlier next time!
