At Mencap – where I was promoted 5 times – I grew event income from £250,000 p.a. to over £3.6 million. In my final role as Head of Corporate and Event Fundraising, I managed a team of 21 and a budget of £6.5 million. Key achievements with my amazing team include winning Charity of the Year for Tesco and the London Marathon, as well as making Mencap one of the market leaders for challenge events.
As a consultant I have achieved spectacular results for many organisations, ranging from large national charities such as Mind, Age UK and the Alzheimer’s Society, to smaller organisations such as hospices.
I have also been a mentor on the Institute of Fundraising’s Mentoring scheme since 2012.
I have spent over 20 years raising millions of pounds for charities.
