After 12 years of successful fundraising as a senior executive, consultancy is a great opportunity to help more charities and institutions make a difference through effective philanthropic programmes.

As a manager, a teacher, a trustee, a friend or a father, I’ve always focussed on giving people the means to thrive, because this is what makes me happy, eventually. As a consultant, it means empowering clients to help them fulfil their missions and, in turn, make their beneficiaries happier.
