Blue Lotus Consulting & TYO Webinar

Does the thought of evaluation make you want to stick your head in the sand?

Do the words “logic model” send you off to sleep?

As a pair of former non-formal program directors, we’ve been there too and we feel you. However, we’re blazing a new trail – one that will help you reveal that powerful story your organization has to tell. Join us as we break down the process of evaluation into a set of strategies and tools that can help your organization reinvent the way you navigate and understand participant experience. We’ll discuss the importance of engaging in an evaluative process as means to revealing meaningful impact. And, how the process of evaluation can actually strengthen your organization from within.
