Zazie Tolmer​

Principal Consultant

Zazie works collaboratively with clients to support teams and organisations to become more effective.

Zazie works on designing government investments, developing fit for purpose monitoring and evaluation frameworks and conducting useful evaluations.

Zazie was the monitoring and evaluation specialist on the design of the Investing in Women Australian Government initiative (2015), and the program logic specialist on the re- design of the Empowering Women for Poverty Reduction program (MAMPU) (2015).

Zazie has led over 25 evaluations including the evaluation of the effectiveness of the Future Farming Strategy, a $208 million Victorian cross governmental strategy delivered between 2008 and 2012 (2012) and a review of the impacts of the feminist partnership between the International Women’s development Agency and the Fiji Women’s Rights Group (2014).

She regularly develops monitoring and evaluation frameworks and plans with clients such as the monitoring and evaluation plan for the Recognition and Settlement Agreement between the Dja Dja Wurrung Clans Aboriginal Corporation and the State of Victoria, Department of Justice (2014).

 

Zazie unexpectedly fell into evaluation. She first worked as a researcher for a Fair Trade company in Japan (2006-8), People Tree. Her role included assessing the social, environmental and economic changes experienced by Fair Trade partners in Africa, Latin America and Asia as a result of People Tree’s activities.

It wasn’t until she moved to Melbourne and started working for an evaluation company, Roberts Evaluation, that she realised that she was actually an evaluator. Zazie finds that working with groups of passionate people to support their design, testing and refining of their projects is both challenging and rewarding.

Dr Jess Dart

CEO & Founder

Inventor of practical methodologies and highly demanded facilitator, Jess navigates complexity with comfort and helps her clients to become clear about their desired outcomes and how to get there.

Recipient of the 2018 AES Award for outstanding contribution to evaluation, Jess has over 25 years experience in evaluating and designing social change initiatives and strategies in Australia and overseas.

In October 2005, Jess founded Clear Horizon Consulting and is now CEO. She is also a board member of the Australasian Evaluation society.

Jess is passionate about developing and designing real world evaluation and strategy for social justice and sustainability. She particularly works with systems change interventions, large scale strategy and social innovation. After completing her PhD she co-authored the Most Significant Change (MSC) guide alongside Dr Rick Davies, which is now translated into 12 different languages.

MSC is well suited to evaluation in the complex emergent context. The latest innovation by Jess, Collaborative Outcomes Reporting (COR), is a collaborative form of impact evaluation.

Jess is also an active mum and has two teenage boys. In a quiet moment, she loves reading far-future science fiction and enjoys long distance running.
