WEBINAR – Evaluation 30 Years’ On with Elliot Stern

Personal Reflections on the Road Travelled since UKES was Launched

  Join us for our first Birthday Event as we celebrate our 30th anniversary.


There is no-one more qualified to launch our 30th anniversary series of webinars – Professor Elliot Stern has been a keen observer and active participant in evaluation in the UK and globally over more than three decades. He will give a personal perspective on the last 30 years of evaluation and how it has evolved – sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse!

Expect his talk to challenge conventional thinking, as he lays the perfect foundations for our extended webinar programme that will feature expert speakers talking about all the big issues in evaluation. This one is not to be missed.
