Tris leads NPC’s development of new strategies, partnerships and initiatives to help transform the social sector. Working with partners both in the UK and internationally, Tris focuses on both the demand and supply sides of innovation around social impact.
His particular interest areas are leadership and culture, as well as frameworks and approaches that put impact at the heart of the social sector, including shared measurement, open data and systems thinking. Tris helped initiate, and now coordinates, the Inspiring Impact programme which aims to embed impact measurement across the UK charity sector by 2022. He is also engaged in international efforts to advance an impact focus in the social sector as a trustee of the Social Impact Analysts Association, a member of the EU GECES subgroup on impact measurement in social enterprise, the Leap of Reason Ambassadors Community and the Alliance for Effective Social Investing, and as a speaker at international conferences in Europe, Australia and the U.S.
Tris has helped build NPC’s approach to sector research, charity analysis, impact reporting, and shared measurement and led numerous research projects on subjects including impact measurement, community organisations and ageing. Before joining NPC in 2004, he worked in market research and management consulting.
