Service offered

I have designed and undertaken evaluations of organisations and programs. The evaluations that have been designed in consultation with the client to meet their needs and answer their questions about their organisation, their practices or their products. 


As an internationally renowned researcher, the skills I have developed have been useful in the design of quality evaluations. Both quantitative including statistics/surveys) and qualitative (including interviews and observations) can be used depending on the needs of the client. All evaluations are undertaken after a project brief is established and parameters are identified.

Services that can be offered include:

  • Evaluation of your products from the standpoint of your users

  • Evaluation of programs your organisation has implemented - this can include the end result, the rollout process, issues associated with the product and rollout.

I have been lucky enough to work with Professor Robyn Jorgensen on a number of projects over the past 10 years. In my current role, I manage a drowning prevention program for children under 5 called Kids Alive - do the five. This community service program delivers free water safety materials to Early Learning centres and Swim Schools throughout Australia. With Robyn's guidance we have been able to create several resources and ensure the services that we provide are of the highest possible standard and meet best practice guidelines. Most recently Robyn has guided us through the conceptual phase acting as a chair on an advisory committee, conducted research into the rollout and usage of the package and collated the results into an independent evaluation to help us guide our future direction. I have no hesitation providing a testimonial for Professor Robyn Jorgensen because without her our program would not be as successful. She is an internationally renowned researcher and wonderful human being.

Dear Robyn

The early years learning research you conducted with industry partners was exceptional. The way you engaged with the swimming community to get such a robust study had to be seen to be believed. How you engaged and brought International swim schools into the study was another feature and, as a result, the study has now been used and translated into a number of languages..... great negotiation  skills.... well done!

The evaluation that showed "early years swimming" builds a child's social, emotional, physical, and intellectual capital is invaluable to the swimming industry and the parents.

What I wanted in terms of evaluations and findings of the project was easily understood and the feedback you built in made these findings very useful to the industry.

A big thank you from me and the Swimming Industry!

If I need research or evaluations again you will be the first one I  ring.
