With two decades' fundraising and management experience ranging across diverse fields, from medical research to international development to higher education, Anna has an exceptional track record in securing six- and seven-figure donations and grants; developing successful, sustainable fundraising strategies; and supporting teams to smash multi-million pound targets.
Anna set up the major giving programmes at WaterAid and Cass Business School, and more recently established from scratch the trusts and major gifts team at Anthony Nolan, growing income from £125k to £2.5m over five years. She brings all this knowledge and experience, coupled with a friendly, unflappable approach, to her consultancy.
In the course of her career, Anna has delivered fundraising training workshops to local NGOs in Tanzania, hosted the Lord Mayor of London at high-level receptions in Kazakhstan and Thailand, met with government ministers in Borneo, and escorted multi-millionaire donors to some remote and memorable corners of various sub-Saharan African countries. These days, Anna is based in a small village in Cambridgeshire and continues to work with clients across the UK and internationally.

Head of Partnerships, Womanity Foundation
"I worked with Anna at St John Ambulance to review the Major Donor and High Value Giving programme. Anna very quickly got to grips with who she needed to talk to in order to understand a complex organisation. Anna has a very broad depth of experience and understanding and was able to use her skills to build a clear picture of the needs of the organisation. Anna was very supportive and had great people skills and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone wanting to understand, develop or build high value fundraising within their organisation."
Director of Fundraising, St John Ambulance
"Anna provided expert support and advice to the Trust & Foundation team at Independent Age over a number of months. Her strategic, calm and inclusive approach was invaluable when we were creating a new Fundraising Department. Her legacy continues now and she set the benchmark by personally securing our largest gift for several years. Anna's technical knowledge when it comes to high value fundraising is unsurpassed and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her services."
