I love to share my passion for strategy and fundraising with audiences far and wide. I enjoy making the sessions interactive to harness the wealth of experience in the room and so everyone leaves with practical take-aways.
I'm always creating new content to present, but the topics I've spoken about recently include:
Building resilient strategy in fast-changing times
Finding your strategic focus in four simple steps
Supercharging your strategic thinking skills
Attendee, IDPE webinar, April 2020
Congratulations on the webinar last week [with Jo Beckett]. Best one I've seen so far on the current crisis on all channels!
It was great to have an opportunity to hear your strategy wisdom.
