Before you start to share your story, you need to figure out what it is you do and how you are going to talk about it. This stems from having a strong understanding of where you are and what you plan to go.
If you need help in creating a strategic plan for your organisation, be it marketing, business development or helping you to work better, then I am a strong person to have on your team. It is hard when you are in an organisation day in day out to step back and see the bigger picture and this is where I can help.
You may need a department, or even company wide assessment of where you are, what you are providing to your customers and suggestions for the way forward. I hold a MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy, Chartered Institute of Marketing Professional Diploma; as well as ten years experience in business, three in education and five in the arts and cultural sector.
I also plan and deliver large scale programmes, managing large budgets, working with contractors, reporting to key stakeholders and generally making sure what needs to happen happens on time.
I work in several ways:
- one off consultancy – e.g. leading a planning and questioning day
- project basis – working to a specific brief, or even creating that project with you
- coaching – set of six 50 minute sessions via Skype, ideal for an individual or small business
- retainer – a long term relationship, working strategically and practically.
Clients include: Trinity College London/Arts Award; Royal Opera House Bridge; James Rose/Royal Academy of Music; A New Direction; Stagecoach; Thurrock Council; Pop Up Projects.
The types of projects I offer include:
- writing – blog posts, marketing collateral, presentations, ebooks more
- strategic planning
- project evaluation
- report writing – including for funders such as ACE
- creating & delivering workshops
Examples of work
I have worked with Trinity College London for over three years (and counting) to develop and grow the Arts Award Supporter programme. This includes: mailing programmes, regular e-shots, writing and producing videos, developing and delivering workshops, writing and developing a brand new website, ongoing personalised support for Supporters, case studies, resources and working with other associates.
For James Rose’s conducting project I provided project evaluation and helped with communications with key stakeholders. More
