Dear all,

This is an invitation to register for eight upcoming London workshops and 
hands-on workshops in early September.

These introductory workshops are designed to cover the entire process of 
research and evaluation, from start to finish. In practice, you will be 
able to provide your training programmes or events, public engagement 
activities, or your general provision of services with invaluable insights 
to create, change or meet strategic objectives. A particular focus is given 
to using quantitative evaluation methods and statistical analysis, in order 
to make your findings more robust

The workshop series will help you address the following:

- How do I collect the "right" information"? (Overall methods)
- How do I ask the "right" questions? (Survey/questionnaire design)
- How do I understand the information I collect? (Analysis & Reporting)

The hands-on workshops are focused on questionnaire design and quantitative 
data analysis and reporting. They are for people who wish to put their 
training into action with the guidance from expert trainers. 

The early bird discount for our hands-on workshops ends on the 16th of 
August. Book by then for 10% discount.

More information about the workshops is available at: 
www.methodsforchange.org.

Best Regards,
