Gallup CliftonStrengths® Achiever | Futuristic | Strategic | Relator | Maximiser

I work with founders and senior managers of forward-thinking social enterprises and purpose-led businesses who want to create MORE impact in the world as effortlessly as possible.

Impact measurement has always seemed too complicated and confusing. With me, we’ll focus on simplifying your approach to impact – using the five stage Lean Social Impact Approach I developed – so you can start where you are now and see progress in your impact measurement and management quickly.

You can work with me 1-2-1, through my group mastermind or on a consultancy basis, to focus on:
• Identifying the impact you want to create and developing an impact-led strategy so you’re clear about what to focus on and how to grow your income and impact.
• Reviewing your current products and services, and deciding what to stop, continue and start based on the impact you want to have.
• Putting in place the systems and processes to measure the impact you deliver, so you know exactly what you’re achieving, and what needs to be improved.
• Establishing robust impact data and evidence for marketing & PR, and for funders commissioners and investors to improve your chances of success, and grow your income.
• Producing your social impact report or SROI report.
• Staff training, support with tenders, social procurement and embedding impact in your organisation.

Wondering about me? I received an MBE for Services to Innovation in Social Enterprise and to Impact Measurement (never thought I’d get to write that)! It followed 20 years of hard work, helping over 2,100 social enterprises, from start-ups to those with over £1bn of income in the UK and internationally. I’ve been shortlisted and won several other awards.

I’m a Chartered Accountant, so you’re in safe hands when it comes to your numbers as well as your impact with me. I specialise in working with health and social care organisations; housing associations; education, training & employment organisations; and trading co-ops.

I’m author of “Social Enterprise: How to successfully set up and grow a social enterprise”  and “Impact First: The social entrepreneur’s guide to measuring, managing and growing your impact” .
