      "I left the [workshop] with a plan of realistic things to do to begin implementing outcomes measurement which makes [outcomes measurement] a lot more tangible and achievable."
      "I feel much more confident in my capacity to drive the direction of outcomes measurement in my organisation… I also feel that I have made some worthwhile connections and would be keen to maintain these as peer support."
      "I now have a ‘roadmap’ of how to achieve my objectives in terms of outcomes measurement for my organisation, as well as fantastic resources in the workbook and booklet provided."
      "As I am new to outcomes measurement it gave me a clear understanding of the methodologies, issues and benefits. I feel more confident that I can be involved in conversations about outcomes measurements and an advocate in my organisation."
      "Coming from a local government background, it was useful for me to see what people in the private sector are doing, as well as people from not-for-profit organisations and other tiers of government. Gaining a better understanding of different perspectives, challenges and opportunities was invaluable.
