——————————————————————————-

It’s my belief that success comes from experience, which is why I established Practise Training & Consultancy to build on 20 years of voluntary sector experience, including 14 years as the founder CEO of  an independent, registered charity.

The connections I’ve made, and the experience I’ve gained throughout my career  ensure that I am equipped to help you with almost any problem or project.

I’m able to work with organisations and groups of all sizes, and I understand the different needs of  third sector stakeholders at local, regional and national levels.

I help trustees, directors, CEO’s and their partners,  through  governance, management, and development assignments. I’m friendly and approachable, and offer a flexible and affordable service,  including cost effective remote consultations.

I work across England (where I began my career) and Wales, taking into account the distinctive requirements of each country. Clients in Wales can benefit from my detailed knowledge and understanding of essential cultural and linguistic considerations, geography and operational regions, the Welsh Government, Third Sector Strategy and associated partnership arrangements.

Recent and current clients include:

*ACEVO *Age Connects Wales *Age Concern Morgannwg *Amman Valley Womnen’s Aid
*Best Price Insurance *Cymdiethas Y Merlod A’R Cobiau Cymreig *Deer Initiative Ltd
*Llanelli Women’s Aid Ltd *Royal College of General Practitioners Wales (pro bono)

I’m on the approved list of trainers and consultants with both ACEVO and WCVA, and a full member of the Institute of Directors.

My special interests include:

* Charity mergers

*Support for strengthening governance

*Developing bespoke sustainable income generation strategies

* Working with staff to develop and submit Big Lottery major funding applications

*Volunteering development, including the Investing in Volunteers Award

*Bespoke training and coaching to support change

As well as being the Proprietor and Principal Consultant of Practise Training & Consultancy, I have held various other relevant positions such as:

*Founder CEO, Age Concern Neath Port Talbot

*General Manager, Connect 141-121, a youth charity

*Director of Marketing and Development, Understanding Industry Trust

*Wales Manager, Electrical Association for Women

*Internal Consultant Community Relations, BP

Everything I offer can be seen on  my web site:   www.practisetc.co.uk,   where you’ll see how I can work with you to strengthen governance, cut costs, improve quality, build capacity and solve problems.
