When it was time to conduct an independent review of my HR department’s structure and processes I brought in Sandbar based on Margot’s extensive experience as an HR generalist.  From the outset her professional demeanor was evident and she quickly won the confidence of my HR staff who willingly supported her task.  Indeed her ability to interview staff members and put them at ease was a key factor in the project’s success.  The resulting assessment was clear and concise which underlined our strengths but recommended areas where we could improve, exactly what I was hoping for.  As a result we are better able to look after our 1,900 plus employees.  I will assuredly use Sandbar in the future and would recommend Margot to any firm looking for a seasoned HR professional.

I approached Sandbar because we needed help to review our HR policies and processes as a result of the growth in our business, and changing human resources needs.  Margot was valuable in assessing our current framework, helping us identify the major opportunities for improvement and sharing her personal experiences and best practices that would allow us to be prepared for our next phase of growth.  In particular, I valued Margot’s guidance on recruitment and onboarding practices that will help elevate our organization.  I would highly recommend Sandbar to anyone looking to elevate their HR program, or in need of practical expertise and support.

The Luxus Group


I approached Sandbar because a Board member, respect very much, recommended them to me. Margot helped us restructure one of our departments and we couldn’t be happier with the results. I would recommend Margot and Sandbar to anyone who needs to explore how their organization might be adjusted to be more effective.

Margot held a team building session with 30 UVic varsity women's rugby players and 4 staff members at the beginning of the 2017-18 season. The session was based on the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator and focused around team dynamics. The session Margot led allowed everyone to see that there are differences between how some people communicate, take in information, make decisions, and structure their day to day lives. 

As a coach, understanding my athletes, their personalities, and their learning styles has helped me cater my coaching and deliverables to suit a wide audience, as well as personalize my approach with individual athletes. This session will strengthen our connections and respect for one another for years to come. It will also help individuals build self awareness, an important aspect involved in learning and growing, as well as fitting in to a team environment. I would recommend this team building session to any team.
