Strategy and Governance Consultancy

Danny is in demand to bring his wide expertise from the charity, not-for-profit and faith sectors to other organisations. Danny works with clients to identify their ambition and to scope out the detail for consultancy work: strategic reviews, strategic planning, governance reviews and training of boards of trustees.


Danny spent several years working as a charity fundraiser, securing grants from trusts, foundations and central Government. He has also developed overall fundraising strategies for charities and worked extensively in major donor fundraising.  Although no longer offering dedicated fundraising work, Danny offers fundraising consultancy as part of wider strategic projects.

Clients include:

Executive Director, Books Beyond Words: Danny led the development of this small social enterprise from no staff and little turnover, to a team of nine employees making a huge social impact. He designed and led a three-year plan to manage the change from a small project within a larger charity to an independent organisation. He worked with the Board of Directors and the Chair, Baroness Sheila Hollins, to lead on implementing this strategy as interim Executive Director.

Caritas Westminster: Danny led on the original research process of engaging key people in contributing to a potential vision and remit for the work of a new diocesan Caritas agency. This involved online research and a consultative road show throughout the diocese, reaching 400 parishioners, priests and service providers within the local Catholic community. He then took a lead role in working with an advisory group to produce the final recommendations for the Diocesan Trustees. Danny continues to work with Caritas Westminster as a facilitator and consultant, as it assesses how best to structure itself as a new organisation within the diocese.

CAFOD and Missio: Supporting the Catholic Church’s two official agencies for overseas mission to examine how to work more closely together. This work arose after previous work with both organisations including leading the development of the Missio major donor programme, implementing a bespoke approach, sensitive to the needs and values of the organisation.
