Our Upcoming Classes


Webinar | Making Your Evaluation and Research Findings Sticky

9:30 AM – 12:00 PM MDT |

People need data more than ever nowadays. But with so much going on, they have even less bandwidth to absorb what we give them. The solution? Sticky messaging!

The evaluation profession (and others) have wholeheartedly embraced smaller and more innovative forms of reporting over the years such as infographics, two-page reports, slidedocs, and story maps. However, these briefer forms of communication require us to condense our extensive findings into much shorter content. Evaluators and other professionals also need to identify and make their key messages “sticky” in order to reduce the noise and ensure that busy decision-makers are able to understand, recall, and act on our key findings when the time comes.

Join us for a fun and interactive webinar looking at what makes a message “sticky” and leave feeling inspired to try something new!

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

– explain the benefits of sticky messaging with evaluation and research reports

– describe the steps to isolate key messages from pages of findings

– list ways to make these key messages stickier for stakeholders.
