CEO and 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 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 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. In particular she 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 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, and in a quiet moment loves reading far-future science fiction and long distance running.
