Origin Story

Why should origin stories be limited to super heroes?



Scale a catalyst for change

We worked with the ICI Board, Secretariat and stakeholders from the shaping to the adoption of Strategy 2015- 2020 Having beaten their 2020 targets by 2017, we shaped a structured mid-term review of their progress and adaption of their targets. Also supported ICI in its multi-stakeholder events, showcasing the organisation’s contributions, enabling a space for constructive dialogue and in exploring, ‘Emerging priorities for the tackling child labour in cocoa: where do we want to be in 2018?’.


Corporate engagement journey

Developed a think piece situating the WV five-year global campaign to end violence against children against the sustainability commitments and reporting of corporate actors. Through research and stakeholder engagement, explored how the campaign would need to strategically adapt to attract deeper corporate engagement, drawing lessons from the work of other actors operating in the child rights space and laying out the resourcing, capacities, challenges and opportunities for WV.


Fight against child labor

Supported JTI in their social programs portfolio in line with their sustainability approach and their work in eliminating CL in their vertically-integrated tobacco growing efforts through the ARISE program. Unpacked the impacts of their social and environmental investments and fed into strategic thinking on how to scale up efforts with streamlined intervention models. Conducted field research and stakeholder engagement, and developed a scaling program strategy that embraced the Ruggie Principles and the commitment to ‘know and show’ their respect for human and child rights.



Standard for the aid sector

Served as the Chief Process Architect of the global consultation, development, testing and validation of the Core Humanitarian Standard (CHS). Ensured the participation of 1000 relevant stakeholders to refine and adapt a coherent standards architecture promoting greater clarity and harmonisation of standards across the humanitarian sector. Ensured a participative commenting process with appropriate governance, executive, technical and stakeholder levels of validation and testing.


Alignment Post-Paris Agreement

We lead an all-staff retreat of the Sustainable Development Mechanisms (SDM) Programme of the UNFCCC Held just after the Paris Agreement we provided a process to co-develop a shared vision of the future, collectively focus on the changes that the programme is facing and exploring how to foster greater collaboration. Iterative process connected a team of 100 staff through three distinct workshops with senior management team, middle managers and all staff.


Strategic Fit-for-Purpose

Facilitation and accompaniment of the Secretary General, the SMT and all staff in defining future parameters for the future of the RAMSAR Convention Secretariat to surface alignment in how form will follow function and in defining a shared Value Proposition Follow-on retreats focused on reviewing progress against intended results, co-development of a revised framework for Secretariat annual/triennial plans and in reinforcing the Value Proposition.



Unpack an institutional partnership

This was a strategic evaluation of the SDC/Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs annual contribution of 80m CHF to the ICRC headquarters, assessing how the contribution is used and the extent to which the objectives of the contribution were achieved. Included assessment of structural, process and management dimensions being transformed by the funding partner, in light of significant growth of operations. Challenged a long-standing relationship and the lack of clarity on how the organisations support or strengthen one another through this non-earmarked funding partnership.


Measure social impact in disaster response, at scale

This was a behemoth of an evaluation: we used Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodology to measure the impact of the Rental Support Cash Programme. We assessed the socio-economic impact of six humanitarian agencies that provided rental subsidies to more than 14’000 families that were still living in camps. It worked- not a single family returned, all had found or maintained their accommodation- and the programme provided $1.80 in social return for every $1 spent. The evidence was able to illustrate how to increase their impact/ROI for successive phases of the programme- and how landlords were actively using their earnings to develop more rental space.


Build capacity and champion CSR impacts

We worked on behalf of the Government of Malaysia’s strategic investment fund, Khazanah Nasional.Provided Social Return on Investment (SROI) training and coaching to Government Linked Companies (GLCs) and civil society organizations involved in the 10-year GLC Transformation Program and their specific CSR/CR commitments outlined in the Silver Book. Participants showcased their CR contribution using SROI for Open Day 2015 celebrating the 10-year Transformation GLC Programme.
