Trained comedian, deadly snake rescuer and accomplished fundraiser. English wit, Antipodean directness. Mathematician and copy-writer. Throw in a diverse range of charities I have worked with from dozens of countries and I promise there will be something new, something interesting and most importantly – something that will make your cause more money in every talk I give. After fundraising in the UK from '88 up to '02 I worked in events, direct marketing and my last job before crossing to the dark side - heading up fundraising and marketing at UK mental health charity, Mind. The dark side wasn’t too dark. In 2002, I co-founded Pareto Fundraising and later a charity call centre, Pareto Phone and we helped charities raise over $1bn. After selling the business to concentrate on training I co-founded Moceanic, dedicated to lifting your ability to increase revenue for your charity.
