What you can expect if you work with me

I am a professional, approachable, and flexible consultant who will bring expertise, clarity, and new ideas to your project.

By working freelance, I can give you as much or as little time as you need. I bring a can-do attitude – working with you to set goals, meet deadlines, and review success. If you have an urgent deadline, I will pull out all the stops to meet it. If you just need occasional input, we may go for weeks without being in touch.

Regardless, you can be assured that I will be available when you are ready.

 

My approach is logical and focused.

I also bring a touch of creative thinking. Looking at ideas from a new angle or proposing new activities can turn a project around. I am a strong believer in both if it ain’t broke don’t fix it and we cannot expect to achieve a different result if we keep doing the same thing.

I collaborate with project teams to explore and develop all aspects of their project. I work with trustees, project staff and/or volunteers as needed. Together, we will produce high quality and well thought through:

  • Funding applications
  • Activity plans
  • Options appraisals
  • Business plans
  • Budgets
  • Strategic reviews
  • Sustainability plans
  • Evaluation reports

With a background in community engagement, I bring a strong audience focus to any project. I am particularly interested in seeking opportunities to increase diversity in heritage projects and in finding ways to enthuse, inspire, consult, and inform people of all ages and backgrounds.
