“Mr. Butler’s contribution to (UBC’s) success was critical, being instrumental in helping us plan our approach to the competition, provide feedback on specific applications and gather information relating to the social and economic impact of each application’s research and research infrastructure, without which we would not have ranked so highly in the final results.”

Indira Samaraskera, O.C.
Vice President Research, University of British Columbia


“Martin is a very strategic thinker, planner and talented facilitator.  We feel that Martin’s input has dramatically helped the University of Calgary achieve (its) goal.   Our researchers are very positive about the contribution Martin has made on many projects.  (His) professionalism and discretion are attributes highly prized by university officials and individual researchers alike.”
