Evaluating and Planning for the Unexpected

07/12/2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Everyone knows that working in the creative sector requires an ability to deal with the unexpected, but none of us saw 2020 coming. You’re still here. Congratulations, you absolute legend! We will talk about this upheaval for years to come. For decades to come, we’ll be saying ‘I did 2020, I can do this’. So how do you get the most out of having endured, managed or blossomed in a time of significant change?

In this two hour, interactive workshop, Sandy Thompson will outline how to structure and undertake a rigorous evaluation and how to use the learnings from it to form a suitable plan for a world filled with uncertainty. She’ll explain how evaluating well is the key to shifting what you do and how you do it so it’s the most effective and best-fitting plan for you and allowing you to adjust for whatever comes next.

Key Learnings

  • How to design a really useful evaluation
  • How to undertake a good evaluation with yourself and others
  • How to use your findings to plan effectively for times of uncertainty

About Sandy

A theatre and filmmaker, Sandy has spent over 25 years wrangling projects, creating teams and running successful collaborative ventures in a variety of bumpy and unpredictable environments. Her ability to advocate for and secure support for her work comes from a passionate, well-informed approach that understands what value really means. That comes from learning how to do a ruthlessly honest evaluation and use the answers it provides to maximum advantage. She’s created some spectacularly successful and some dreadfully misjudged projects in her time and learned from them all. Now her track record of major projects with both creative and business advocates is impressive and she has to move fast to keep up with the projects she’s managing.
