As a Coach, I help fundraisers, leaders, volunteers and supporters to make the biggest difference they can. I also support people facing changes, such as career breaks for parental leave, promotions or restructures, or shifting into/out of campaign. I feel privileged to have worked with each of my clients and to continue to witness the difference their commitment, courage and honesty can make to them and their work. The results never cease to amaze me!

My fundraising experience and deep understanding of context and the kinds of challenges often faced by development professionals allows me to switch between Coaching and Mentoring if needed. I find this helps to ensure the best outcome for clients and their organisations.


"Florence coached me through several challenging donor situations with a high level of tact and professionalism, and also provided me with valuable advice based on her own extensive experience in the development sector. I credit Florence with significantly easing my transition into major gifts fundraising and would highly recommend her as a coach and mentor".
