Dr Damian Hatton
Damian founded inFocus in 2007. He oversees the inFocus consultancy team and has overseen assignments in 37 countries over the last 13 years. He leads on business development, marketing and provides hands-on quality assurance and project management support to the inFocus team across all complex consultancy and evaluation work. His high-level facilitation, training and strategic planning expertise are applied within a wide variety of client projects, utilising his monitoring, evaluation and research experience across a number of different interest areas. He has particular strong thematic experience in sport for development and peace (S4D), gender equity and equality, child protection, child migration and children in contact with the justice system.
Previous to inFocus, Damian founded Street League. Street League is a UK NGO that specialises in changing the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds through the power of football, with a long-term vision to help bring an end to structural youth unemployment in the UK. Here, Damian acted as CEO for 9 years and gained frontline experience and insight into the various challenges and rewards of developing, ‘scaling up’ and sustaining an NGO involved in civil society development. He originally trained as a medical doctor at University College London Hospital, practising in both the UK and Australia for 5 years.
