Proven Credentials and Client Satisfaction
The below comments from clients are a mix of institutions and individuals that we have supported in their impact measurement journey:
“Communication – both in keeping the organisation updated on the status of the work and also in communicating with stakeholders. Some consultants are too ‘academic’ but in our experience with Impact Seed, they have had the right balance.”
“Impact Seed did a good job of clearly communicating ideas/concepts in the documents, particularly with use of graphics. The international frameworks included and alignment of metrics with the SDGs were also very helpful. Further, members of the Impact Seed team were very accessible and responsive.”
