The Commercial Charity tells you everything you need to know to develop profitable earned income, and how to apply business principles and techniques to dramatically increase any non-profit’s reach and impact.
I will provide you with immediate objective feedback and advice on any decisions, ideas, opportunities and challenges you wish to discuss, enabling you to confidentially talk through your thoughts, clarify your options and alternatives, and make better, more confident decisions.
I will challenge your thinking, offer new ideas and perspectives, diffeerent frameworks for thinking and action planning, and prepare you for success every step of the way.
For CEOs who want to dramatically elevate the capability, effectiveness and performance of themselves and of their leadership teams.

How do you design new commercial ideas so that you can deliver to customers flawlessly, retain them year after year, and grow them continually over time?
The ability for any large organisation to learn, adapt and respond to a rapidly changing environment, largely comes down to two things: how good are its hothouses, and how well can it propagate its limes.
If we want to access the income, impact and influence we could gain from a new generation of corporate partnerships, we will need to meet business leaders where they are, and take the time to educate and lead them to where they need to be.
