Kirk Harrison

I help not-for-profits develop all aspects of their operational models, with a focus on investment readiness, drawing on my background in the commercial and social finance sectors. I bring an enthusiastic, empathetic and straightforward approach to working on a wide range of projects. I combine a strong ‘can do’ work ethic with a sense of pragmatism and importantly, a sense of humour.

After 20 years in the financial sector, I followed my passion for sport as a means to engage with and help people, give something back to society and pursue my desire for a second career in the social sector. I have extensive experience in the Sport for Development (SFD), Not for Profit and Social Investment sectors, and work with a number of social lenders/investors bringing relevant and current experience in this area.
