How we can help

Experience. Knowledge. Know how

With over 25 years’ experience of management and leadership within the charity and not for profit sector, we are able to provide valuable, cost-effective support across all facets of management, leadership and day to day running of charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Organisational Development

How often do you take an effective temperature check on how your organisation is performing? Other than monitoring your income, how do you really know you are making the greatest impact? We offer practical advice, guidance and support on growth, efficiency and organisational structures to deliver greatest possible impact.

Strategy/Business Planning

Setting your long/mid/short term goals and plans is often easier said than done - but it is a critical part of ensuring your future focus and success. We support clients of all sizes with strategic/ operational planning, offering advice and practical support. Along the way we will become your best constructive critical friend.

Leadership, Away Days, Facilitation

Getting the best out of individuals and teams takes an investment of time and effort. We work directly with CEO's, Directors, Senior Management and staff to ensure you get the very most out of your team away days or other time together. We can help plan, lead or facilitate team days, project groups, brainstorms and other events involving teams.

Interim Management

With significant senior management and leadership experience we offer objectivity, support and immediate capability at swift notice. We can help to support existing teams to keep things running, assist you to overcome problems or challenges or help to initiate and drive team or organisational change programmes for the future.

Governance Support

Working with Trustees, senior teams and/or engaging wider staff and stakeholder groups we can review your current governance arrangements and offer advice, practical support and recommendations to ensure you are relevant, compliant and fit for the future.

Coaching & Mentoring

Sharing our sector and leadership knowledge and experience, providing a listening ear and a safe space or simply being an independent sounding board to CEO's and senior management - we can tailor our support to meet your needs and objectives.

Marketing & Fundraising

Sharing our wealth of knowledge and experience across marketing and fundraising disciplines can help you get the results you want. We help you to define, develop and deliver fully integrated projects that make a difference - and along the way help you to get teams working effectively together.

Campaign Development

Helping you to develop a campaign strategy or assisting in creating individual campaigns to make a lasting difference is our specialty. We have strong experience of devising and developing campaigns - from public health, righting an injustice, mobilising communities or growing your membership.
