Nice to Meet You

My Back Story

In 2011 I co-founded Fundraising Consultants Ltd. Like many great companies, Fundraising Consultants started as an idea over the kitchen sink. My husband and I left the security of paid employment, set up a website and began dipping our toes into the world of charity consultancy. It was a risky move. And with four young children at the time, this was not a move for the faint-hearted.

Fast forward a decade or so and Fundraising Consultants Ltd has grown beyond all expectations. With a growing team of associates, the business has worked with hundreds of non-profits.

But after ten years at the helm, change was beckoning me.

 

Ever read a book that has helped change the way you think? Paul Jarvis’s book, The Company of One was a game changer for me. The idea that staying small is the next big thing struck a chord with me.

What if the key to a richer and more fulfilling career was not to scale up but rather to downsize and work for myself? What if I could free myself up to focus on those areas of my job that I’m most passionate about?

And the answer to these questions is an unequivocal, yes, I can.

So, I sold the business and waved goodbye to VAT returns, managing associates and a whole lot of admin. And so my company of one was born. Welcome to the Fundraising Expert.
