Storytelling and data trends workshop

Stories are a critical form of communication that moves hearts and minds, and they can also be used to track changes in social impact initiatives. We provide this participatory workshop to walk organizations and companies through a systematic and step-by-step process to collect and analyze stories as data. This can be used to visualize aggregate level trends and to identify successful strategies. The findings can then be shared and communicated in diverse ways.  

Audience: Foundations, nonprofits, socially-responsible companies, start-ups, and impact investors.

Length: 1-3 days

Sample Clients: Oak Foundation, HIP, TRAG, Women’s Learning Partnership.

Sample Workshop: We held a five-day monitoring and evaluation (M&E) training with Prospera: International Network of Women’s Funds, with over 30 representatives and evaluation consultants from around the world.

The workshop included:

  • A crash course in mixed methods analysis (from preparing data, data cleaning, coding/tagging data, to visualizing and interpreting data)
  • Storytelling and outcomes alignment
  • Technical training on how to use the ImpactMapper software
  • Using data to feed back into strategy, M&E processes, organizational and programmatic learning

Interactive training to identify key performance indicators, impact stories and metrics

Organizations need more than traditional key performance indicators (KPIs) to track their social impact. In order to ensure that your organization’s impact is meaningful, we lead interactive training sessions to help you define your impact, theory of change, stories of change and key impact metrics along with other KPIs.

This provides your team with the right metrics to measure and communicate your key areas of progress. 

Audience: Socially-responsible companies, start-ups, and impact investors 

Length: 1-3 day training or ongoing company support.

Sample Client:  We held a one-day workshop and guided start-ups in Danske Bank’s ‘+impact’ accelerator program, to define their impact stories, elements in their theory of change and key impact metrics to track their companies’ progress in contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals.
