I have had the pleasure of working with Mary, as a colleague and contractor, many times over the last decade. She has a deep appreciation of the challenges faced by vulnerable people and communities, and a special ability to help social innovators think about, plan and evaluate their work. I have used the work of Eko Nomos and Mary a great deal in those years and continue to (happily) recommend her as a first rate consultant, coach and evaluator.
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.
