Robin's professional interest in both the NPO space and the need NPOs have within the realm of G Suite was so encouraging. I think this is because she loves M&E and has passion for what she does. We were hesitant to get in an outside person to filter through all our project documentation but found that she was quick to understand the operational aspects of our team's work and rapidly got to grips with how she could create efficiencies for us! Our interactions were quick and simple. Robin implemented and supported our independent use of Google apps in a way that both managers and administrators could understand. She had multiple options for us and found solutions creatively. We would recommend her to other organisations without hesitation.

Robin helped us immensely and her service was efficient and extremely professional. The Breteau Foundation is a small organisation supporting schools with digital technology in South Africa and several other countries globally. We were in need of a specialist to fine-tune our measurement tools and configure the backend of our reporting spreadsheets. Robin was very helpful in doing so by solving our immediate needs and collaborating on a long-term plan for better measurement and evaluation. We were very impressed by her willingness to help, utmost professionalism and quick turnaround time for completion. We would look forward to utilising her expertise again in the future

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Robin over the last few months. She has completely transformed Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) within our organisation. We recently submitted our annual reports to our donors and they were beyond pleased with our new reporting tools. They absolutely loved the quality of the reports that they received. Robin has taken the time to develop a sincere understanding of our work and we feel very confident with the tools she has produced. She has honestly taken our organisation to the next level, both in terms of reporting to our stakeholders and in terms of having high-quality data to constantly evaluate and improve the quality of our work. I would recommend Robin’s services to any NGO looking to put in place a high-quality M&E system.

The Board was hugely impressed by our fabulous system. And you could feel the pride around the whole room as [we] showcased slide after slide of thoughtful, relevant, beautiful, and (nogal) real-time and interactive reports that we now have at our finger tips. It was also great to hear programme staff discussing some of the reports with familiarity and a satisfied sense of ownership! The working model that you and Isabella have co-developed over the 18 months has been a real joy to observe in-development. I was so glad to have been in and around so many of your conversations and working sessions and to see the respectful, effective and creative way in which you worked, always with a commitment to making a system that genuinely met our needs, a preparedness to reflect, think again and improve - always with the intention of building our internal capacity and independence, and ensuring as the practical usefulness of the system at all levels of the organisation – making it both innovative and sustainable!

It has been such a treat working with Robin and Chris - I feel like I have learnt so much about the way M&E can really help support the smooth running of an organisation and how it can positively impact the actual work we do and how we operate as a team. I also feel like I've come to appreciate what it's like to work with real experts. I am grateful Robin had a gap to work with us in 2020 and I am looking very forward to continuing. I am also looking forward to the whole team really starting to use and engage with these systems and dashboards.
