Working together to provide creative solutions to organisational development challenges
DR TALI HOFFMAN
Impact and Science Communication
Tali is a science communicator with a PhD in Zoology. She is skilled at understanding and interpreting the technical details and complexity of a wide range of scientific disciplines, and in making the science relatable and accessible to diverse audiences. Tali and I work together with a range of clients, focusing inward, on their organisational effectiveness and sustainability, and outward, on their communication strategies. This integrated approach sets teams up for effective fundraising that is linked to clearly-articulated impacts.
Writing and Project Management
Anna is a wordsmith with a fine eye for detail and an intuitive talent for bringing out the potential of a piece of writing. She holds a degree in Environmental & Geographical Science and Social Anthropology from the University of Cape Town, and has experience in copy editing for a range of writing styles, from academic to popular writing. Anna and I work closely together in my business, where she fulfils the roles of copy editor, researcher and project manager. With her irrepressible playfulness she brings the fun into fundraising.
Research and Project Coordination
Lavinia is a project coordinator and researcher. She has a MSc in Ecology and is currently completing her PhD at the African Climate and Development Initiative at the University of Cape Town. Lavinia works with Zoë part-time time, undertaking fundraising research and project administration. She is gaining an understanding of how social and environmental organizations function, so that she can address these challenges in her career as a social and environmental researcher and activist in Southern Africa.
Design and Social Media
Frank works freelance as a graphic designer and a social media marketing consultant. He illustrates books, develops corporate identities and writes content for blogs. Some of the illustrations on my website come from Frank’s pen, and he is also working with me presently on my online communication strategy. Frank is my first stop if social media and design are required to support a client’s fundraising efforts.
