Consultant + Researcher + Writer
I’m a consultant to nonprofits with an emphasis on research. I help with things like field impact assessment, program evaluation, and strategic planning. I also research and write investment prospectuses for use with major donors. I served as the executive director of a thriving nonprofit in Singapore, have worked as a professional researcher for 30 years, and have written and published 180+ articles and book contributions in the field.
Recently, many organizations have been asking for my help with outcomes-based evaluation (OBE). Outputs are the things you do. Outcomes are the changes you hope will happen in peoples’ lives as a result of the things you do. It’s easy to measure outputs. It’s harder to measure outcomes, but way more important. OBE requires research, and that’s where I come in.
