The Eko Nomos team brought extensive experience and expertise in program development and evaluation. The development approach that we took for our evaluation allowed us to work collaboratively – exploring good evaluative questions, leading to important insight and learning that shaped the project along the way. Mary and her team provided ongoing coaching and support that was crucial to the success of the project. We could not have done it without them!

It has been my pleasure to work with Mary Ferguson in my capacity as Manager of a Community Futures Development Corporation. I have benefited from Mary’s instructive mentorship on the topic of rural social enterprise. Her conviction to the cause, combined with a naturally inquisitive mind, and instinctive understanding of rural values makes her an invaluable asset to rural-based organizations and the communities they serve.
