“I subcontracted some work in the North-West to Sally in 2016. This was a strategy to upscale and commercialise a product for a locally based voluntary organisation in Merseyside. Sally undertook the project efficiently and competently and the client was very impressed, so I would certainly work with Sally again”.

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Sally to the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation as a fundraising consultant. She has been a pleasure to work with, being very supportive and focused on our needs. She met with each director and key staff member individually, asked us challenging questions, and quickly developed a good understanding of how LESS works and our future plans. Her recommendations were appropriate and well-presented, including summaries and timelines to help with our planning and prioritisation. She completed each stage of the work ahead of our agreed deadlines, and invited and incorporated our feedback. In addition to fundraising advice, she gave us useful suggestions about changing the way we work, drawing upon her knowledge of what has worked well for other third sector organisations

“I have been very impressed by Sally’s professionalism and work ethic. She produced a very proficient piece of research that met the client’s brief perfectly and the final report was well received. I have no hesitation in recommending her”.

Sally is a solution-finder. Nothing stands in her way! She has a winning balance of being results-driven and naturally personable, taking an interest in who she works with.
Quick to grasp new projects, she swiftly assesses what needs to happen to enable progress. Then gets on with it and delivers. She has an ability to highlight aspects of a business plan that may not be obvious to its creator, but which can be developed or expanded for profitable gain, or better business practice.
Highly self-motivated, I found her to be reliable and focused, business-minded yet bringing creativity to her approach.
Sally is also very charismatic and ‘sparkly’ yet grounded and down-to-earth, making her a great motivator of people.
