I offer a framework of services to help you with these challenges:
No-one to talk to about organisational challenges? I offer one to one coaching sessions in which I'll listen carefully, think and ask insightful questions to help you work through your problems and learn from your experience.
There's no roadmap to social innovation. I can offer advice on the best way forward for your idea. Whether the challenge is start-up, organisational development or the growth/replication of your successful organisation or project I've been through it and know the pitfalls to look out for.
I can help you clarify and develop your ideas from early stages to implementation:
Business planning - like many entrepreneurs and innovators, you know what you want to do, but may not be great at writing business plans. If you need one, I can write it for you.
Networking - don't have time to get out of the office enough? I can help find and develop beneficial partnerships for your project, with public, private or other social sector organisations
Fundraising - great idea but need help raising the money? I have raised several million pounds for various charities and was instrumental in planning the successful consortium bid for the Millenium Commission's £100million Millenium Awards Endowment, the largest single open tender for the voluntary sector
