More Partnership's Founder, Iain More, was on the panel that recruited me to my first fundraising role. In my career, I relied on More at key points to keep challenging campaigns on track, and now I am pleased and proud to be part of the team, working with people whom I greatly admire.

With some large-scale projects behind me, particularly the founding of V&A Dundee, I have come to see that there are so many reasons to support a good project – and there is joy and satisfaction in finding the one that brings it to life for each donor. And in working with clients, it’s wonderfully rewarding to help them explain their work in new and compelling ways. By doing so, they stimulate in others the passion they themselves feel and so enrich their lives and those of their beneficiaries and donors.

Some I've worked with recently

Outside More

  • I’m a lover of wild places: the perfect day would be to cycle in to a distant mountain, climb to the top and pause on the way home for a refreshing swim in a river or loch
  • Reconnecting with neglected enthusiasms (photography, reading) and embracing new ones (grandparenting and gardening)
