Clients’ comments

Liz has recently helped Somerset Wildlife Trust secure significant grant aid from a landfill company.  Liz was quick to digest and package up a significant number of disparate threads and turn them into a compelling and robust set of funding applications with clear themes/stories.  Liz’s straightforward approach, patience and attention to detail made working together on these grant applications a real success and strengthened our bids considerably.”

Tim Youngs, Head of Nature Reserves, Somerset Wildlife Trust

Liz’s contribution to BTO’s fundraising future is significant and long-lasting.  It is rare to find such depth of knowledge so straightforwardly applied, alongside an encouraging and stretching approach to team building.  It is Liz’s assured and collegiate style that makes a real difference.”

Andy Clements, Director, British Trust for Ornithology (BTO)


“The Bumblebee Conservation Trust has really benefited from Liz’s experience and expertise in fundraising. She is a joy to work with and is always incredibly thorough and professional. I would recommend her to any organisation needing help with its fundraising.”

Lucy Rothstein, Chief Executive, Bumblebee Conservation Trust


“Liz has given us a real “leg-up” with our fundraising.     She has helped us find our strategic direction, in a practical way, getting to the nub of what we really need to do to make us a more financially sustainable organisation..”

Frances Cattenach, Director, North Wales Wildlife Trust


“Liz is one of the most effective fundraisers I’ve worked with, both as a member of staff and as a consultant. She grasps the essentials of any project very quickly, and translates it into a funding bid rapidly, smoothly and efficiently. She writes stylishly, punchily and at speed, and involves other staff painlessly and with minimum impact on their other work. And the resulting grant applications are as good as they possibly could be, and almost always successful.”

Brian Eversham, Chief Executive, The Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire

“Sometimes a consultant will write a strategy that is worded in such a complex way that it ends up just decorating the shelves.  Not so with Liz, who listened and learnt about our organization and our needs before writing, and whose advice was clear and straightforward and therefore easy to implement.  All the work Liz has done for us has been delivered promptly and to the highest standard and I have no qualms about recommending her to others.”

Sarah Kessell, Chief Executive Officer, The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales

“Liz really helped me and my team in overcoming some of the obstacles that held us back from taking forward fundraising ideas.  It is all too easy to assume that we are all so busy that we can’t do anything more, but the training session allowed us to see that it isn’t that complicated given we do much of the work already, but with a little bit of focus (or re-focusing) and a very definite ‘ask’ we can raise and increase vital unrestricted funds.  It has been very rewarding for me to see my team go from resistance to acceptance to a sense of real excitement over the opportunities that fundraising brings to our whole organisation.”

Julian Jones, Director, Radnorshire Wildlife Trust
