I work with charities, not-for-profits, major donors and grantmakers, advising and helping clients boost their strategies in fundraising and development, operations and impact. I have significant experience as a fundraising director and consultant across a range of sectors, including education, youth, health, cultural, and social justice. I have an MSc in Philanthropy, Grantmaking and Social Investment from Bayes Business School. I focus on fundraising and philanthropy, strategy, board development, stewardship and external relationships, starting and growing internal business systems, case for support development, feasibility studies, new products, and reviews. I enjoy supporting individuals and teams with training and mentoring. I am a Fellow of the CMI, and a Fellow of the RSA.
