Presented by Greg Nairn, winner of the 2018 Third Sector Award for his Operations and Social Impact Measurement software, this introductory session will teach you the importance of quantifying the societal effect of your organisation’s outcomes. Greg will also reveal the power of logic models and how to construct them, as well as how to best describe your impact both internally and externally to grow support and improve operational efficiency.

A clear trend has developed in public and private sectors around the desire to have clearer insight on whether resources are being allocated in the most impactful way. Funders, governments and corporates are also talking more and more about going beyond traditional service funding models and towards Social Impact models.

No prior knowledge or experience is required.
