I am currently researching a new report looking at museums who used to be local authority services and now are independent trusts. I am examining how these independent museums are faring, especially with their funding agreements under pressure and what they feel independence has allowed them to do which they would not otherwise have been able to achieve. Is the mix of services within an organisation a key ingredient, as some are museums only, some have libraries or the arts, and others have leisure and parks?
Register your interest here now to contribute, for updates and advance news of the report's publication next spring.

This website gives you information about me, my work as a museum and heritage consultant, and what previous and current clients think of me.
If you commission me, you always get me. I do not employ juniors or assistants so I am very efficient, cost effective and brilliant value for money.
But if you need a larger team with skills in other fields, then I can tailor a bespoke team for you too, using people I have worked with before in specialisms ranging from Architecture to Zoology.
As one of the UK’s leading museum and heritage consultants, I have great depth and breadth of experience in managing and developing museums and cultural organisations.

I have considerable experience of the wider heritage and the cultural sector as a whole. I have successfully run my own business for fifteen years following a distinguished career in local government leading and creating innovative museum and cultural services.
