Strategic Planning

My services at a glance:

  • Strategy development and advice

I can advise organisations of all sizes and stages of evolution on developing your internal policies such as strategic planning processes and governance structures.


The approach will reflect your organisation's scale and needs resulting in a series of recommendations to address key opportunities.

  • Business and operational planning

The cultural sector is in a cycle of stress and experiencing new challenges. With increased competition for a reducing pot of funds, changes in funding patterns, increased demand and increased costs, these and other factors are forcing organisations to rethink their long term sustainability plans.


I can bring some independent perspective to any changes you are making to your organisational business plans or internal operational plans to assist you in creating a viable vision and long term business plan.

  • Organisational change management

As the Greek philosopher Heraclitus said ‘Change is the only constant’. I can help organisations embrace change whether it’s a normal part of your planning cycle or if external factors make it necessary.


I will work closely with you, your partners and stakeholders to re-clarify your organisations aspirations and create an outcome focussed action plan to help with your organisational change.

  • Policy development

I have extensive experience of working with central and local Government on establishing and delivering cultural policy.


I can work with you to review and develop any of your organisation’s policy development needs to ensure that they not only create a clear plan to help deliver your organisation’s aims and objectives but they reflect and fit in with any appropriate local and national policies and plans.
