Planning for success

Guest Bloggers | 25 May 2016

Guest Bloggers | 20 January 2016

I am still amazed at how many fundraisers visibly recoil at the word collaboration; I have witnessed it many times.

So when it came my way unexpectedly, I jumped at the chance with the mind that it would be a good move for my CV to gain a closer insight into yet another strand of the woven cloth that is fundraising. As it turns out I got rather more than I had bargained for!

So here’s the thing. I’m currently on the Edinburgh to Glasgow train, following my 2nd visit of 6 to Edinburgh this week, with the sure and certain knowledge that I promised Rebecca at IoF Scotland a blog yesterday. Sorry Rebecca!
