What we do
We are expert evaluators and experienced learning partners. We also provide bespoke management, advocacy, and communications training. m2 works primarily with individuals and organisations in the 3rd Sector though, increasingly, our clients include SMEs and the public sector.
Here are some examples of our evaluations to give you a taste of what we do.

'We really enjoyed working with Matthew and Miranda at m2 who conducted the evaluation of our Beacon programme for Chairs of smaller charities. There was a real sense of partnership in identifying how the evaluation would make a difference to our work. We are really pleased with the final report; it allowed us to demonstrate progress, but also gave us insights about next steps. m2 took great care in understanding what we needed from the evaluation, and delivered it.'
Ros Oakley, Chief Executive, Association of Chairs
'Working with m2 has been such a positive experience for Gingerbread; we have learned so much. As well as meeting our expectations in having substantial expertise and knowledge about impact and evaluation, I felt they were invested in our mission and purpose. They contributed to extremely valuable discussions, helping us to unpick challenges and make critical decisions, which has enabled us to reframe our work and direction of travel. It's been so helpful to have them as partners – we hope to work with them again.’
Jo Hardy, Head of Services, Gingerbread
‘I have had the pleasure of working with Matthew and Miranda from m2 over the course of a couple of large multi-stakeholder and high-profile projects. They make designing, planning and executing evaluation fun and engaging. They are genuine learning partners and engage wholeheartedly with the project. It also means they share insights and learnings in a way which enables you to act on them and make improvements. Fundamentally for me - approach everything with a human touch. Their curiosity and ability to draw out useful insights whether through the qualitative or quantitative data is extraordinary. I love working with them and trust them implicitly to deliver what they promise - and more!'
