John Stoney

Australian Evaluation Society
An internal evaluation practitioner within the Australian Government for nearly 15 years which he describes this as his 'day job', in his 'evening job' John is the current AES President. Prior to that he has  been (also effectively part-time) at varying stages a student and later on-line lecturer in the Master of Evaluation course at University of Melbourne, a member of the AES Canberra Region Committee (either member, Activity Coordinator or Co-convenor). He is also a Fellow at both University of Melbourne and Charles Darwin University.  

His interests are in evaluation practice and theory (praxis), evaluation capability and capacity building (at both individual and organisational levels), evaluation use and strategic evaluation. Its these interests that saw him being involved in initiatives such as the AES engaging with the Australian Government, becoming Chair of the Advocacy and Alliances Committee and with the support and contribution of fellow AES members coordinating submissions on a range of evaluation and performance-related issues to the Department of Finance, the Australian Parliament Joint Committee for Public Accounts & Audit (JCPAA), the Independent Review of the PGPA Act and Rule, and the Independent Review of the Australian Public Service.

As both a Board member and President, he is always interested to meet with and hear from members and stakeholders about what issues might be priorities for the AES, and how they might be best addressed.
