You're at a BBQ. Someone asks you what you do. You say, 'I'm an evaluation consultant'. They look blankly at you. There's awkward silence. They avert eye contact. What do you say next? How do you explain what you do and how you make the world a better place?

If you'd said, 'I'm a firefighter or nurse or builder', you may not have been greeted with glazed eyes.

Through a series of images and anecdotes, participants will learn about how the presenter has tried to describe what she does - some attempts have been greeted with enthusiasm, others have not!
