I’ve been working in the sector for over 40 years and have known, worked with and for most types of organisations and issues pursued by voluntary organisations.
I pride myself on being a straight-talking consultant; someone who pulls no punches in a genuine effort to get to the very heart of the many organisational and individual challenges I face in the course of my work.
My core focus is always the needs of my clients’ beneficiairies, whose interests I find are all too often lost sight of in the serious rough and tumble of organisational life and survival in the sector these days.
I tackle work on small scale, one off consultancy assignments as happily as larger, medium term assignments, in either straightforward ‘consultant’ roles, or in the role of Interim CEO.
My recent assignments have involved me in the world of volunteering development in fundraising charities; in the fascinating – and new charity – world of Students’ Unions, and in helping with the development of new Social Enterprises in the criminal justice field.
I am primarily concerned with working alongside organisations to create sparkling futures for the people and issues they are seeking to support.
