1Public Market

Consulting, training and strategic advice in the broader public services requires an understanding of how government, agencies, boards and commissions work. We have the know-how.

Owning a business is one thing. Growing it is another. Managing growth, change and innovation – well that’s the tough part. And that’s our sweet spot.

3Non-for-profit Market

Lots of hard work and accountability is the bedrock of the not-for-profit market. All for good causes that make Canada a great place to live and work. We love this market complete with its boards, client groups and stakeholders. We’re on board.

4Academic Market

University, college and adult education courses are part of the long history of MLEK, long before it became MLEK. We facilitate learning because we believe in life-long learning and continuous improvement.
