I am a senior philanthropy consultant who specialises in connecting philanthropists to social justice causes. My entrepreneurial and emotionally intelligent approach has provided me with a track record of delivering tangible results for high profile charities for nearly 15 years, in areas such as homelessness, social mobility, mental health, LGBT rights and holocaust education. I deliver unique and bespoke training to fundraisers, trustees and senior management teams using techniques and insights gained from professional experience within the performing arts.
In additional to my experience as a practitioner, I have extensive academic knowledge in the field of philanthropy, and have recently completed a Masters in Philanthropic Studies at the University of Kent. My dissertation ‘The Invisibility of Domestic Abuse for High Net Worth Giving: Replacing Metrics with Morality’ is the UK’s first qualitative primary research study exploring why major donors are not making transformational gifts to female domestic abuse services and what might unlock these opportunities.
