Jeph Mathias

Jeph is a highly respected international evaluator, who’s returned to our shores from his international exploits with his whānau since COVID hit us all.

Jeph started his life as a doctor but found his calling working as an evaluator and international development consultant.

Jeph’s particular area of expertise is participatory outcome mapping and harvesting. He reached the most difficult corners on our planet for various tasks, from Amazonia forest to Himalayan valleys and from Brazilian favela to Cambodian slum. We can’t wait to hear how Jeph frames some of evaluation's big challenges today – building de-colonisation into our everyday evaluation practice, practising participation and identifying systemic injustice.
