John creatively and persistently drives charities to be the most effective organisations they can be

Do you know who your most valuable donors are? Are you unsure where you should focus your limited fundraising resources? Do you know how you stack up against your competitors? John can help you answers these, and many other, core organisational questions.

John’s excellence lies in his ability to astutely assess the state and capacity of your organisation. And from there, develop the fundraising and organisational strategies you need to thrive and grow. One of the key differences to John’s approach is he empowers your own staff with the skills and learnings to implement and enhance these strategies.

John Harris is also the author of the NVCO publication ‘The Good Management Guide for the Voluntary Sector’, described as:

“An invaluable resource for cultivating staff and getting the best from people.”

John has secured significant funding for the establishment and development of a number of charitable organisations, setting them on the path to becoming the thriving organisations they are today. These include a:

  • Housing co-operative
  • Community run children’s nursery
  • Community amateur tennis club

Specifically, John can support your organisation with fundraising and income generation, organisational strategy development, staff training, mentoring and capacity building.
