Engagement Evaluation with Chris Mene
Don’t lie - this is the part of the engagement process we all avoid. Firstly it requires numbers and that freaks us, then there are the ‘soft things’ – terms like ‘liveability’ that we’re expected to measure and report on.
Fortunately, our IAP2A trainers have been on the case; testing, checking, reworking and watching each other deliver this important course. And we’re happy. Don’t wait any longer – skill up so that you can validate your engagement projects.
Thank you to our sponsors
