Here are some of the ways I can help your organisation:

Interim Executive

Providing your charity with an interim executive. I am currently part of the ACOSVO Interim Executive service which provides third sector organisations with access to expert, experienced third sector Interim Executives to support leadership transition. For more information on this service click here.

Strategic Planning

Working with the board of your charity to  develop a strategic plan to inform the targets set in your business plans.  I can also help you develop business plans, mission statements. This may involve consultation with other stakeholders or members of your charity.

Strategic Fundraising

Working with you to develop a coherent, long term, fundraising strategy which will enable your charity to be sustainable in the long term. I have raised millions of pounds for a range of difficult causes over the past thirty years and I can use this experience to help you.

Organisational Development

Is your organisation moving to a new phase in its development? I can assist you to determine required staff roles, write job descriptions, liaise with funders and communicate with existing staff to ensure they are with you through the whole process.

I can also mentor senior staff in fundraising and management roles to help them grow in their roles and contribute more to your organisation.

Communication Strategy

Identifying who your audiences are and identifying the key messages you want to get across to them. From this I can write a full communication strategy from email newsletters to printed publications through to social media. I can also commission designers, source printing and advise on social media an web site issues.

Internet and IT Consultancy

I can help you select or develop your own,  fundraising and CRM database system and ensure that GDPR issues are addressed.

I have successfully moved organisations to cloud based computing solutions (Office 365 and G-Suite). I can assist your staff with this transition  and advise on how to get some of these services at reduced charity rates.

More than just one person

When you hire me you aren’t just hiring one person. I have network of contacts and can point you to other expertise in many other areas where you may need help.

Freelance Work

In addition to these services you might need an extra pair of hands to help with  copy writing, fundraising management, web design or staff mentoring. I am also experienced in social media, online advertising and video editing (I am an official YouTube content creator with over 8 million views of my own videos). I am happy to consider any freelance assignments you may have.
