A message from Anne Martell of Martell Consulting Services Ltd

I would like to thank all my clients and colleagues over the past 30 plus years for supporting Martell Consulting Services Ltd. and believing in my integrity both as a consultant and as a person. I have had such a rewarding career but it is now time to close Martell Consulting down and travel new paths along this journey we call life.

I welcome younger consultants to take over where I left off. Bring your energy and new approaches to the profession of research and evaluation. Bring your passion but always remember to temper it with balance and sober second thought. And always, always write the truth. Don’t hedge, tell it like it is. Sometimes that is difficult…but it pays off in the end.
