Dovetail in 2017

Another year goes by and another opportunity for reflection. Thanks again to all who have been part of Dovetail's success - as clients, collaborators, and conversations.

For Dovetail, it was another productive and satisfying year. One of the biggest highlights was being part of the Te Ara Mua Future Streets team which scooped up the Innovation Hub and Supreme Awards at the Bike to the Future Awards.

I was also very pleased to be part of publishing a few journal articles, my first for a while, on evaluation, bikelash and urban form.

Clients kept things busy as always, which is great because the variety of work is constantly engaging, and it gives an opportunity to help people working at the coalface. Some new research and evaluation directions emerged through this, including social procurement, financial capability, social enterprise support, and just at the tail end of the year, a new foray into ocean conservation.

The election blogs provided time for me to geek out to my heart's content, and to keep things on an even keel, I set myself an audacious goal to get to 52 gigs in 52 weeks.

And for me personally, 2017 had some pretty tough moments. I'm incredibly grateful to the friends, family, colleagues and clients who were there to get us through. I can't thank you enough.
