Understand need, opportunity & impact

HOW IT WORKS

Do you need to find out what your stakeholders and participants want and need? Is what you're doing currently having an impact? What kinds of opportunities are they looking for?

I can carry out a tailored needs analysis and stakeholder consultation with your participants, groups, partners and communities to find out the answers to these questions in their own words. You can use this data to inform your programming and projects, strategies and partnerships. Get in touch to find out more.

Develop your leadership skills and capacities

HOW IT WORKS

Aside from the 'prestige' opportunities offered by the Clore Leadership Programme, the arts and culture sector provides a lack of opportunities to uncover and realise your leadership potential. 

 

Having battled my own way through this challenge, I have a deep understanding of the needs and issues of emerging and mid-career leaders in the sector, with particular expertise in health, wellbeing and career progression.

I can provide coaching for individual staff , devise leadership programmes and advise you personally as a senior, team or emerging leader.
