We worked with Hilary as part of our AIM Grant.  Hilary was great to work with and immediately identified some key issues with the charity’s structure and skillset.  Her focus on pragmatic structured solutions to solve the identified problems helped map out the road to overcoming them.  Our time with Hilary was very constructive, well spent and has put us on a more resilient path.

I can help your recovery from the impacts of the pandemic.  I tailor my support to suit your situation. 

I would approach my work with you as one of capacity building, not coming in then going away again, taking all my knowledge with me.  Most consultancy is ‘expert’ where someone gives you the answers, but the best consultancy is what I practise which is capacity-building consultancy. This helps you to understand, learn, and think things through for yourselves while being guided and supported by me, so building both the individual’s and the organisation’s capacities.  As the sector begins to recover, this is the most effective way of working to ensure lasting benefit to your organisation.

I also add my personal knowledge from other clients or situations to inform decisions and ensure you are aware of best practice. This method ensures the whole organisation can grow. This rich mix of coaching and bespoke support involves everyone in the organisation so also helping to bridge any gaps (e.g. between the Board and staff or Trustees and volunteers); this is essential if you are to recover from the pandemic, build resilience and thrive in the future.

I was a Trustee of Bletchley Park for over 10 years so I understand from personal experience the importance of good governance and the role of a Trustee.

Although I often work on a project on my own, when required I can call on a wide range of specialist expertise in other fields.  See the Associates page for some of these.
