Looking back Looking forward 2015

ESS was 10 years old in May 2015. To mark the occasion our Looking back Looking forward conference reflected on 10 years of third sector evaluation.

The conference involved:

  • Sharing learning from ESS and our partners
  • Networking amongst third sector, funders, policy-makers
  • Ideas and visioning about the future of evaluation
  • Fun and celebration.

Our conference outcomes were that participants would:

  • Learn something about evaluation to take back to their work
  • Have greater enthusiasm for improving their evaluation
  • Have a shared perspective on distance travelled in third sector evaluation and a vision for the way forward.
