our projects



 

Fieldworks Consulting is a collaborative partnership. While Ben and Elizabeth each bring distinct skills to the table, our strength as a team comes from the complementary nature of our perspectives and experiences.  Whether Elizabeth, Ben, or another Fieldworks associate is leading a project, our clients gain the perspectives and full investment of both partners when they work with Fieldworks.

We are happy to share more about these various projects with prospective clients, as well as to provide references from previous
clients whenever appropriate.
