Amanda Mottershead has been selected for the Award based on a substantial piece of work she undertook in a difficult environment, with good references to how issues such as professionalism and ethics were managed.

The process of working internationally across a large number of voluntary associations is extremely difficult and Amanda managed this with the skills of a much more experienced evaluator. The final product, a Toolkit to Engage Young and Emerging Evaluators in VOPEs, is comprehensive, engaging, practical and well designed. It is a resource that will be used across the world to encourage young evaluators to become more engaged in the profession. This is a goal we can all support.
