How do our clients feel about working with us? We asked a few cultural leaders to share their thoughts about our research practice. (Many thanks to them for these kind words!)

The research has the capacity to be transformational for the O’Keeffe Museum. Slover Linett took the time to listen, understand our needs, and integrate their work with another consultant team… As a result, the staff is eager to develop and implement experimental programs to attract and retain new audiences. Peter and his team are not only experts in audience research; they are experienced, thoughtful, and sophisticated partners who are willing to think with my team.”

Former Director, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

Over the course of my career, I’ve worked with Slover Linett many times–and looked to them to provide important audience insights that guided key marketing decisions. They have a unique understanding of the complex world of arts and culture that few if any other firms possess. I would highly recommend them for any project that called for a smart, strategic and insightful research approach.”

Lori Kleinerman

Vice President of Marketing, Chicago Architecture Center

The totality of the audience research has been a game-changer for us. In particular, the segmentation has given us “ammunition” for our experimentation agenda and a new language to use when we’re developing programming. This language is now a part of our everyday parlance… The work you do and the way you think are inspirational…”

Our Smithsonian team has tremendously enjoyed and learned much from the Slover Linett efforts. The final report gives us such excellent material, both broad in its context and detailed in its data. [It] will provide rocket fuel for our next adventure. I feel incredibly fortunate to have met Peter…and to see our wonderful, mindful collaboration come to fruition.”

Slover Linett has been a partner of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra since 2010, conducting numerous studies to better understand both current and future audiences. Engaging a consistent and professional partner that is experienced in the performing arts has proved incredibly beneficial for our team, as Slover Linett now has a strong knowledge of our market and patrons… This partnership has become an incredibly valuable foundation…”
