We were delighted to have such a great line up for our Stats and Stories for Impact Autumn Forum, in the wonderful venue of the London Mathematical Society.
We all gather statistics, but could we be working a little smarter and imaginatively in how we gather, analyse and present the figures?
Increasingly numbers aren’t enough, we need to demonstrate the impact our services have on the organisations and individuals we support. How can we best gather those stories, and turn them into powerful testimonies of our value?
Our speakers did us proud.
