Andrew Means is at the leading edge of social impact data. A self confessed: “cynical optimist. “ This podcast interview with Andrew explores why data is everything - only with good impact measurement can real scalable and lasting social change be made.
Andrew is the Senior Director of Global Impact Data Strategy for Salesforce.org – the social enterprise arm of digital giant Salesforce. He is also co-founder of social sector data infrastructure firm BrightHive and founder of professional development organization Data Analysts for Social Good.
Andrew challenges every one of us to be really rigorous and cynical about your own impact.
“It’s easy to caste yourself in the role of hero saving people. [Instead we all need to] go out and collect evidence of your impact.” Explains Andrew.
