Conclusion: Our visit to Momentum Bay was definitely memorable, largely due to the charismatic presence of founder and CEO Mark Robinson. It was fascinating to hear the story of how the company came into being, and precisely how it carved out a niche in the marketplace. I have long held ambivalence towards the very concept of a consultancy firm, particularly in the sustainability “industry.” However, it does seem that Momentum Bay has a keen interest in seeing the tangible results of their work, which I very much appreciate.
