As an approved provider through sector support and funding programmes, I work with a wide range of groups at all stages and around a variety of themes. In delivering on these I try and work flexibly, recognising that using consultants should make your life easier (not more difficult). I will consider meeting times 'out of hours' if needed, and making use of video calls to reduce the need for time spent stuck in traffic or on trains.
I'm happy to have an initial conversation by phone/skype/over cake 'without obligation or expectation' to help us both understand exactly what it is that you may need and whether I'm the right person to help you achieve it.
Although I've also been feted with a number of national and international awards in recognition of the value of my support to groups, I also seek to be as transparent as possible. To my knowledge, I'm the only freelance consultant who has been openly publishing an annual impact report on themselves for the last 14 years (which has been recognised as a model of leading practice in integrated reporting by Social Value UK).
