Seminar overview

This is an opportunity for a conversation about finding a balance and realising benefits from evaluation not just delivering outputs and outcomes. Lorrae will share her thoughts based on multiple roles and experiences as a starter for a dialogue that is free, frank and safe. Nothing is out of scope.
