How do you know your work or your resources are making a difference? Demonstrating social impact enables social purpose organisations (SPOs) to prove the value of what they can offer, and improve their impact by identifying areas of strength or weakness. Likewise, funders and resource providers are increasingly evaluated in terms of both the financial and social returns on investment. However, SPOs and social investors are often put off by dry approaches and complex tools.

This one day workshop takes a practical approach to impact measurement, involving SPOs, intermediaries such as incubators and accelerators, and social investors from philanthropists and impact investors to corporates and wealth managers in the discussion.

Learning Outcomes

This is an interactive seminar with a combination of presentations, case studies, exercises and discussions on impact measurement approaches. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will have:

  • Explored their impact measurement intentions, constraints, and goals;
  • Developed a deeper understanding of the common data categories needed to track, understand and report impact;
  • Reviewed case studies on impact measurement;
  • Identified new avenues for collaboration and peer-learning in impact measurement.

Target Participants

Professionals who wish to measure their impact, either as a SPO or social investor (i.e. in accelerator programs, advisory groups or foundations and corporates).
