I believe that our world should be a place of aspiration and improvement – for everyone. I bring this sentiment to my work with my clients, encourage them to think beyond their usual constraints, and be aspirational for their supporters and beneficiaries. It can be brilliant.

Some I've worked with recently

  • International Committee of the Red Cross
  • Medair
  • RedZebra


  • Making the complex simple, and the confusing understandable
  • Business strategy
  • International fundraising
  • Supporter engagement
  • Mass market fundraising, including emergency fundraising

Before More

  • 10 years with UNICEF, culminating as Chief, Fundraising Services
  • Eight years running fundraising and marketing agencies
  • Six years as a buyer and negotiator with an international minerals conglomerate
  • Educated at the universities of Leeds and Exeter, and INSEAD in Paris and Singapore

Outside More

  • I’m a Fundraising Board Member of Moorfields Eye Charity and also a Non-Executive Director for a number of companies in the sector
  • I have three teenage, rugby playing sons who are all big enough to duff me up and a fabulous wife whose intellect runs rings round me
  • I’m a season ticket holder (sufferer?) at Brighton and Hove Albion and, speaking of suffering, a keen follower of Welsh Rugby Union. Why is it we always draw Fiji at the World Cup…?
