I’m an innovation coach and consultant to purpose-led organisations. I act as a catalyst so you can create game changing new ways to achieve your goals.
I believe that even the smallest of organisations can innovate cheaply and deliver value quickly in any area; from fundraising to programme design to how you deliver your life-changing work on the ground.
Most importantly, I believe you are the right person to lead this, not me. Through consultancy, coaching and guidance we’ll work together to demystify and apply the best tools from the world of Tech and startups to deliver your mission (think Design Sprints, Lean Start-up methodologies, User Experience (UX) to Agile Project Management).
I bring my experience from Cancer Research UK, Plan International UK and other sector-leading organisations along with bags of enthusiasm to enable you to be creative, think differently and make your ideas not only a reality, but a vital part of your future growth.
Get in touch and let’s grab a cuppa!

Do you want to improve your supporter experience but have found that people, processes and systems keep getting in the way?
Join me at the Institute of Fundraising Convention 2020 to turbocharge your supporter experience and learn from our experiences of doing it:
A 30 min short interactive webinar we ran as Covd-19 hit where a team I lead (who’ve been working remotely for almost 3 years) share tonnes of tips on how to make remote meetings and workshops work for you. We share tips like nominating the next person to speak, plus we give you a tour of our favourite tools for online whiteboards, work tracking and video calling.

I talk about my role as Coach to the newly formed Innovation team at Cancer Research UK. We talk about the tools and techniques the team use to move fast and keep up with the changing needs of supporters, and how they operate differently from other innovation teams.
We also talk more broadly about how charities can innovate on the way they operate, as well as harnessing the power of their supporters. lean and agile principles.

Working from home / remote working / being part of a virtual team has unique challenges but also offers huge opportunities.
I co-hosted a podcast where we chatted to two wonderful Cancer Research UK colleagues of mine about the positive impact working from home has had on physical and mental health and work-life balance.
They share tonnes of tips and ideas how to make remote working work for you by staying disciplined, switching off at the end of the day, plus how to build team bonds if your team is remote-based. We also discuss why enabling remote working is so good for organisations.

I recently co-ran a summit around supporter experience. Participants were asked to name their three biggest supporter experience challenges and it was amazing how often the same five problems came up. Here’s what they were:
– Having raised challenging questions about supporter experience
– Being clear about what they wanted to achieve for supporters
– Knowing how to overcome cultural barriers that were stopping them making progress
– With a clear idea of what you could do tomorrow to make the most impact
