Client Testimonials

"Wow - what an outstanding (evaluation) plan. It's flexible, detailed - not one thing is missing that I can think of"

Claudia Iannelli, Project Officer, Service Canada

"I wanted to send you a copy of our Program Guide ... since you had such an impact on shaping the program through your evaluations; I thought you might enjoy reading it. I'm just finishing up our toolkit as well (... a lot of the revisions and polishing came as a result of your final report)"

Heather Miller, Team Lead, Women Moving Forward
