Testimonials

“Nancy brought the energy, creativity and people together to create Canadian Business for Social Responsibility (CBSR), when responsible business was a still new idea for Corporate Canada.  She brought enthusiasm, commitment, imagination, a sense of fun and a strong work ethic to the table.  Later Nancy played a central role in creating and leading CSR consulting opportunities for CBSR, which ultimately led CBSR staff to create a fee-for-service consulting group, a key driver of revenues within this enterprising not-for-profit.  Nancy is a visionary, a networker, a disciplined project manager and someone who inspires the best in people. ”

Our experience working with Spark was excellent; it enabled us to reach the next level of development for our small business.”
