How I can help you


In developing an advancement programme that’s right for you I know that one size definitely does not fit all. Harnessing your organisation’s unique characteristics, I can help you to develop a meaningful plan for where you want to be and how to get you there: a plan that will galvanise and inspire within, and beyond, your organisation.


I can add value by helping you to unlock and develop knowledge and skills allowing you to understand the motivations for why people choose to become involved with you and how to inspire them to make your organisation a priority for their engagement. And I can build the capabilities and confidence of your team to equip them with the tools for success.


Fine words butter no parsnips! Once your strategy and plan are ready that’s where the fun begins as you take your plan from the page to the person. Whether it’s gathering information and engaging supporters, or helping you manage and motivate your internal stakeholders, this is where I can help you to bring your ambition for global success to fruition.
