Consulting Services
My career experience in both fundraising and the commercial and creative development of exhibits, museums, galleries, and attractions across the world, has led me to the exciting opportunity of now sharing my knowledge through my own consulting firm. An overview of what I could offer you, as my client:
  • Help you build your business by: creating business opportunities and strategies for leveraging exhibit and visitor products

  • Take you to international markets by: providing senior level support for international market development and project negotiation

  • Cost-effectively increase your capacity by: providing senior level support for partnership and sponsorship development opportunities

  • Facilitate promotion or planning of cultural projects: through research, client presentations, project visioning brainstorms, planning workshops, and project implementation advice

  • Build organizational capacity by:  training, mentoring and coaching, developing organizational structure

  • Extend your networks by: coordinating access to my global knowledge of the museum, cultural, leisure, and creative sectors for creation of quality visitor experiences
  • Increase your income by: evaluating and recommending business and risk planning strategies, and development planning with long term impact

The services I offer are at a high level, integrating the best strategic planning with an extensive network and deep knowledge of exhibitions and visitor experience, development, museum and leisure and tourism markets.


The timing of the services I offer varies. For example, most exhibition development services would be delivered at the front end of a project, and sometimes even prior to the formation of a vision for a cultural attraction, whether a museum, gallery, science center, zoo, or other form of visitor destination. Advice, review and feedback, training, and presentation support would also be relevant at the brand development, promotion and sales, fundraising, project initiation stages, and sometimes into the first stages of design delivery of a new gallery, museum,
or attraction.
Market development, international client management, development of commercial strategies for museum product and services, and partnership and sponsorship strategies are timed as appropriate to the situation, as is capacity development and training in museum
best practice.



In addition to my own skills and experience in the field of museums and visitor experience in the wider context of family attractions, I have developed a strong network of highly qualified colleagues who may be brought in to lend additional expertise depending on the type and scope of services required.
