project design & advice

“I was absolutely inspired when you so clearly and concisely laid out how we need to proceed. Our talk has stimulated lots of ideas already as to the form and topics we need to develop…  Thank you so much for your interest, patience and logical way of explaining things to us. We are very excited that you are with us on this journey.”

Ideas – they’re the vital spark. Sometimes you need a sounding board to bounce them off, other times you can get lost in jargon and funder-speak, at risk of losing your enthusiasm and in need of a helping hand from someone who knows how to blaze that trail.

I can help you keep that spark alive – building broader support, preparing for pitfalls, developing your audiences and achieving something you can really be proud of.

My practice is evidence led – observing and researching, collaborating and evaluating – before helping you bring all these together in a design to test against your criteria. This makes sure that your ideas are well-founded and robust, able to pass the challenges of funders and authorities, and that all your hard work is more likely to pay off.
