Build a strong team with our agile and tailored packages, and get your work done as you train. We partner with you to build evaluation and reporting collateral to transform the way you work.


Do you need to develop an evaluation framework or plan for your projects, programs or service delivery? Do you want to change team reports into engaging visual documents that communicate impactfully? Are you looking to implement a survey or interview method as an evidence base of the difference you make? We can create the best package for you.

We invite you to partner with us to create a package that builds the capability of your team and achieves instant results.

How it goes together so you achieve results


We use a shared online platform to progress learning and project evaluation collateral

An visual online framework takes you step-by-step from learning to application to evaluation products and collateral.

Everything is documented in one place for your team so nothing is missed by anyone!

With resources and training perfectly tailored to meet our agency’s changing needs and differing levels of experience, Visual Insights played a pivotal role in helping us build our in-house evaluation capacity. Dr Samantha Abbato is an amazing trainer who has effectively used storytelling, cartoons, checklists, and a range of other great digital and hard copy resources to clearly explain key evaluation concepts. We have come away with a comprehensive set of training resources, checklists, evaluation planning and reporting tools and templates that are ready to go. Being able to work on real evaluation projects as part of the training has meant that we were able to get critical evaluation work done whilst building our knowledge, skills, and confidence. Ongoing evaluation mentoring has enabled us to confidently continue with this work long after the training sessions finished. Our staff remained highly engaged throughout the entire process.

Sam’s combination of theory with practical activities really helped the learning to stick, as well as providing the opportunity to work on my project. The combination makes this time well spent when our diaries are all so busy. The visual tools, workbooks and templates are also invaluable and are now a permanent feature on my desk!
