Marianna Lemus Boskovitch is a senior impact measurement specialist with over 10 years of experience developed across the UK not-for-profit and private sector. Her expertise spans across the planning, design, commissioning and reporting of policies, programmes and strategies in different domains, in the UK, EU and US.

Committed to contributing to evidence-based planning, Marianna’s expertise stems from assessing data availability and constraints in order to develop proportionate impact measurement approaches helping clients making informed decision-making.

Before joining Purpose Impact Action, Marianna was Senior Consultant at BOP Consulting – a UK-based leading consulting practice for culture and the creative economy.

Marianna also worked at RSM UK and Ipsos MORI Policy and Evaluation Unit where she led the Economic Consulting team on the development of theory-based evaluation frameworks, responsible for overseeing the robustness of the research work underpinning impact studies.

Prior to working in the private sector, Marianna was the Research and Evaluation Manager at Young Enterprise – the UK leading financial and enterprise education provider – where she set up the evaluation practice, and oversaw the charity’s expanding impact measurement expertise.

My Sustainability Goals for 2024:

I hope to see NGOs and businesses prioritising evidence and impact measurement in all social policies, interventions and/or programmes.

I believe that focused monitoring and evaluation is a critical step that can change lives. To secure better outcomes for society, it is critical that the full power of impact measurement is realised by NGOs and businesses.

Implementing social impact strategies for evaluation can lead to continuous improvement in decision-making, greater impact, and will reinforce public trust and foster a culture of continuous learning.
