Kate began working with Canal & River Trust in 2013, engaging the Board and senior staff in major donor fundraising. She continued to be closely involved in 2016, providing strategic support and regular coaching sessions to senior team.

‘Working with Kate at Canal & River Trust to enthuse and motivate my Board of Trustees and Senior Management Team was a delight. Kate offered a very complete service – from helping Trustees realise they were better connected than they realised, to inspiring them to share their personal contacts with the fundraising team and coaching them to make a compelling ask. Most importantly, Trustees felt the sessions with Kate were a productive and enjoyable use of their time and as a result went away and implemented what they had learnt. This broadened our prospect network and resulted directly in our first 7 figure gift.’

Ruth Ruderham, Head of Fundraising, 2012-2015

Kate’s relationship with the Trust began when Kate was working at The Management Centre. She continued to work with them through Beneficial Fundraising.
