Strategy and values
Organisations without effective strategies and meaningful values to guide their decisions are at risk of sleepwalking into overstretch, ineffectiveness and dysfunction.

Strategy options include:
Creating overarching organisational strategies that guide operational, financial and communications plans
Mission, vision and values workshops
Stakeholder and audience research
Theory of change creation
Values selection and definition

Research and planning
Is there a specific challenge that you need to address but you don’t have the time to tackle it with your permanent staff?

Challenges I’ve tackled in the past include:

As a former full-time staff member in one of the UK’s largest students’ unions, I’ve been involved in more reviews, working groups and projects than I can count.
I was lucky. I worked for a charity big enough to have its own marketing & communications team, and that could allocate hefty amounts of staff time and attention to three-year strategic cycles and extensive operational planning, without bringing in lots of external support.
Most students’ unions and social enterprises don’t have the financial firepower to hire marketing teams or take on permanent strategy and operations staff. But they need good strategy and clear communications just as much as any household-name charity.
