About Us

We are a team of Bristol based M&E Consultants. Our experienced M&E consultants advise projects on high quality monitoring, evaluation and how to apply learning from evaluations back into project design.

Our Approach

Achieving results and impact is crucial, but to be most effective, organisations need to be able to critically assess their work and nurture an organisational learning culture able to improve on past performance.

Our aim is to help others learn, apply and share “what works” to be their most effective. We combine evidence based analysis with practical solutions that allow our clients to identify realistic and sustainable ways to meet their goals.
