Like any good fundraiser, I love a crazy challenge in the name of a good cause – from running around the Isle of Wight in two days, running coast to coast along Hadrian’s wall in 24 hours, cycling around Loch Ness or swimming in freezing temperatures near the Alps in December. If it sounds stupid and will hurt, then I’m probably in. But to be honest, I do it for the carb loading and beers afterwards.
I’ve had six incredibly enjoyable and successful years as a fundraiser in the charity sector, from living in Ghana and discussing the SDGs in the President’s office, building a website in the jungles of Southern India, launching a partnership with Electronic Arts, FIFA21 and Hummel, to winning the Chartered Institute of Fundraising ‘Fundraiser of the Year Award 2020’, it has been an absolute honour to work in one of the most progressive, rewarding and collaborative sectors around.
Having started my career in recruitment, I’m back to working with organisations to deliver better leadership within fundraising to accelerate societal change. I’m always available to talk about how myself and Peridot can support you in your career advancement or find you the best fundraising talent in the market.
