About

Sambells Global Consulting was established in May 2012 by Harry Sambells.  Due to my 40 year career (34 of which were with Canada’s largest engineering constructor) and varied project experience from small civil projects in Saskatchewan to mega industrial projects in northern Canada and the Middle East, I felt there were numerous opportunities to share these experiences with clients in Canada and overseas.  In the last several years Sambells Global Consulting has provided services as a Project Management Consultant by:
