I am a no-nonsense Fundraising and Communications professional who supports individuals and/or teams to deliver results.
I have 20 years’ experience in the charity sector and was a Director of Fundraising and Communications before becoming a Consultant. I work with EP clients to provide strategic advice, to recruit and onboard teams and/or to offer hands on fundraising depending on the needs of the charity or CIC.
Interim Head of Corporate Partnerships, well respected youth charity
I inherited a team of two and, over a number of months, recruited and onboarded staff to achieve a full team of seven, highly talented and passionate individuals. During the recruitment process, I also worked with the existing team members to deliver income of over £1.1 million.
Case for Support, grassroots societal change charity for young people
I worked with the existing team to create a Case for Support which could be used as the basis of future funding applications and other communications materials.
Interim Director of Fundraising and Communications, Hospice
I have worked with a number of Hospices to cover vacant leadership roles due to vacancies and illness. This has involved quickly understanding the organisation, together with its successes and challenges, winning the trust of teams which have sometimes felt unsettled and focusing on delivering targets.
