About the event
Effective Evaluation Reporting: Making Your Key Messages Sticky
The evaluation profession has wholeheartedly embraced newer and more innovative forms of reporting over the years such as infographics, two-page reports, slidedocs, and story maps. However, these briefer forms of communication require us to condense our extensive findings into much shorter content. Evaluators also need to identify and make their key evaluation messages “sticky” in order to reduce the noise and ensure that busy decision-makers are able to understand, recall, and act on our key findings when the time comes. Join Kylie Hutchinson for a fun and interactive keynote looking at what makes an evaluation message “sticky” and leave feeling inspired to try something new. The training also includes a hands-on workshop with Kylie where participants will have the opportunity to practice on one of their own evaluation reports (or a provided case study).
Keynote: 9:00 – 10:00 am
Workshop: 10:20 – 11:50 am
