I am an experienced evaluator and organisation development consultant, drawing on over 20 years of work in my role as Company Director & Principal Consultant at IOD PARC. My evaluative practice focuses on equipping individuals, teams and organisations with rigorously derived evidence and technically sound guidance to inform both strategic and operational decision making to improve performance throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
My recent work has included assessing innovative funding modalities in response to COVID-19; evaluating strategic partnership engagement with a global health foundation; evaluating a regional Development Bank operating model; and a range of organisational performance assessments of multilateral organisations, including specialised UN agencies. I have experience in delivering a range of evaluations with respect to purpose (summative, formative; for accountability, for learning), evaluation object (project, programme, strategy, policy, method), part of the results chain considered (process, output, outcome or impact), timing (mid-term, end of programme, ex-post) and approach (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, realist, theory-based, etc). All my work is undertaken in line with the principles of utilisation-focused evaluation.
As an organisation development practitioner, I design and facilitate interventions that enable organisations to improve their effectiveness and, working with internal change agents, increase their ability to coach, consult and lead organisational change. I undertake institutional appraisals, learning and development interventions, transition management, support to or from decentralised organisational structures, performance assessments and strategy development. I carry out my work using a wide variety of approaches that are creative and engaging, aimed at getting the best from organisations and their staff whilst increasing their self-awareness. I continuously develop my professional skills through trainings including Chartered Management Consultant (ChMC), CMI Chartered Manager Fellow status (CMgr FCMI), CIPD Advanced and Fundamentals of Employment Law, Group Analysis, Performance and Positive Impact Coaching and CIPD Identification and Analysis of Training Needs, Training Design and Delivery. I hold a Masters of Organisation Development & Consultancy.
