Creating enablers and removing barriers to success
I am an organisational development consultant with over a decade of fundraising and management experience in and with organisations which are creating positive social and environmental impacts. I have designed strategies and materials for groups such as the Cape Leopard Trust, the Neuroscience Institute, and the African Climate and Development Initiative. I have coordinated many successful grant applications, including raising funds for a centre of excellence, a research chair, international collaborations, and numerous projects and consultancies.
My approach is to develop capacities and systems within organisations so that they can thrive. I support teams through helping to create strategic clarity - realigning with the organisation’s objectives and honing their project design accordingly. Using a coaching approach, I then build their in-house capacity for raising funds. I collaborate with impact communication specialists, writers and creatives to clearly communicate an organisation's vision, mission and impacts.
I hold a Masters degree in Social Science, and degrees in English and Social Anthropology from the University of Cape Town. You can view my comprehensive CV here.
