Company Overview

We work exclusively with charities and Universities.

We coach shy executives getting ready to ask for their first million pound gift. We create whole new charitable cases for support from scratch. We lead writing workshops for staff teams and cultural leaders, and strategy sessions for Boards of Trustees.

We also know what it takes to win support for good causes because we’ve done it ourselves. We’ll help you find the words that win that support.
