Working with Cogo has been critical to developing an effective targeted survey into the US consumer market.  With Tania’s expertise, Katabolt was able to efficiently develop an effective survey delivering clear feedback around our key questions.  Tania’s hands on approach also meant that we were easily able to overcome some of the challenges of reaching the right survey participants and successfully gather the data we needed to understand consumer behaviour and identify key market channels.

Testimonials

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Tania in her capacity as an evaluation consultant to a Ministry of Health-funded early interventions initiative. Tania quickly grasped the complexities of our collaborative project, and was a high-performing project team member. Tania’s strong client services orientation saw her work as a collaborative evaluator. She understood the contexts and settings within which our partners operated and we relied on Tania as a trusted strategic advisor. Tania had a shared stake in our project outcomes, and she was just as committed to service improvement and sustainability as our partners. Her culturally responsive approaches to evaluation enabled us to co-design analytical processes with Māori and Pacific stakeholders. This ensured that data was collected, analysed and interpreted using a variety of world views. Tania’s excellent thinking skills meant that interpretation occurred in meaningful ways which offered us insights into enhancing our interventions. Her problem solving skills and perceptive lens also better positioned partners to enhance governance functions. Tania was an inspiring mentor to junior evaluators in the team. She is a natural leader, influencer and coach and these qualities most notably translate in her ability to provide strategic advice and developmental evaluation approaches – helping our project to make a difference to people and communities.

Tania’s personality makes her a big plus to work with. Not only is she all about attention to detail, customer service, finding solutions, recommending initiatives and ways of doing things that we haven't even considered to improve our surveys and data collection methods, but as a bonus she makes it fun. We always have a laugh. Who knew data collection and survey methodology could be so entertaining?!

Testimonials

Cogo Consulting are very easy and fun to work with. They give careful consideration to their projects to ensure that the evaluation that they provide is both relevant and easy to understand. We engaged Tania and her team to help us to better understand the effectiveness of Common Ground; a collaborative project between Curative, Mental Health Foundation, Youthline and Skylight, which aims to support parents, families and friends of young people so that they can enjoy more positive mental health. It's a complex project, with many stakeholders, and a broad audience. Tania really took the time to understand the project intention and objectives, to meet with many stakeholders, and to incite feedback and perspectives from a wide representation of the audience. Because of the care, attention, passion and depth of understanding that Tania and her team had for our project, they were able to design an evaluation framework that gathered feedback with real sensitivity for the subject matter. The result was a robust report, which offered useful insights and proactive suggestions. As a result, the project team has been able to reshape the future direction of Common Ground to ensure that we're really meeting the needs of our audience. If you need to understand the effectiveness of your work, and how to move forward - Cogo can help you uncover the answers.
