I'm a Roffey Park Institute and Management Centre trained Fundraising Management Specialist, with 20 years' experience of creating, developing and leading fundraising teams in the charity and non-profit sector

I work with Charities helping them understand how to attract, nurture and retain great fundraisers, how to develop an organisational culture that understands and advocates fundraising, and how build healthy, happy and successful teams;

and

I work with individual Fundraisers helping them to navigate the challenges of this amazing but often all-encompassing world.  I help them manage priorities, expectations and workloads; teams and team development; careers, career development and progression; and time, focus and balance.

 

I love working in the charity sector, with passionate and committed cause-driven people who have and subscribe to big dreams and the drive to help make them happen.  I became a fundraiser to work with and alongside these people - to develop real wholesome relationships with supporters which raise the money to enable these people to make a difference

 

I completely relate to this group - they're my kind of people

 

But having spent 20 years in predominantly Director/Head of Fundraising roles I am also aware of the more challenging issues that those in these roles often face:

 

  • increasing competition, workload, external pressures & stress;

  • reducing pools of talent from which to recruit, support from other teams across the charity; and development opportunities to encourage the great people to stay

  • growing incidence of unrealistic targets, budgets, salaries & expectations;

 

I now specialise in helping fundraisers to face these challenges and be successful, healthy and happy; 

and in supporting charities to understand these challenges and their impact, and to develop and deploy amazing, skilled, motivated & successful fundraisers and fundraising teams 

"why would you NOT attempt to help everyone around you to be as great as they can be?"
