Iain More Award 2015
11 June 2015
Congratulations to Robert Wayman, the 2015 winner of the CASE Europe Iain More Award.
Robert is Development Manager at the University of Southampton and was recognised for his establishment of the UK’s first Special Gifts Network and his willingness to share knowledge and support his colleagues in the wider sector. Since joining Southampton in 2011 as a CASE Graduate Trainee, Robert has accelerated through the ranks of the Development Office, consistently exceeding 100 meetings per year and raising over £300k from donors giving between £1,000 and £25,000. The 25-member Special Gifts Network continues to go from strength to strength, and Robert can be proud of his work and the long-term impact it will have at Southampton and in the wider sector.
The CASE Europe Iain More Award recognises the outstanding achievements of an emerging development professional. The award is named after our founder, Iain More. As well as working tirelessly on behalf of his many clients, Iain also devoted himself to mentoring and inspiring young fundraisers, many of whom now occupy senior roles in Development. So to help recognise his achievements we were delighted to work with CASE Europe to establish this Award which is open to anyone who has worked in Development in either the Arts or Education in Europe for less than five years.
2015 is the sixth anniversary of the Award which has also been won by Adrian Punaks (2010), Sue Hepburn (2011), Becki McKinlay (2012), Lydia Lee (2013) and Edward Button (2014).
