School Fundraising in Hard Times

Economic downturns are a fact of life. It’s normal to feel that once we pull out of a downturn the foreseeable future will be rosy and great. That is generally true, but another downturn always awaits. Recessions are a cyclical phenomenon. As an independent school leader, preparing for the inevitable is vital for the long-term health of your school. Advancement departments play a critical role in ensuring school financial sustainability. During an economic downturn, fundraising is indeed more difficult. But there are some interesting areas that can still move the donor needle.

How the other half lived: The Peter Burr Living History Farm interprets another side of Jefferson County history

When Bill Theriault looks at the 18th Century log and frame dwelling known as the Peter Burr House, he sees many things: the product of the historic struggle of an underdog, an architectural gem that is somewhat an anomaly in this region, an intriguing set of mysteries and discoveries that has yet to unfold, and a community stage.

Gig Buddies Volunteer Recruitment Campaign

Brighton Fringe is teaming up with Gig Buddies for Good Mental Health, an organisation set up to match adults experiencing Mental Health challenges with a volunteer who has similar interests, to go to events together that they both love. Gig Buddies is designed for individuals with mild to moderate mental health needs, who are able to live fairly independent lives but need an extra bit of support to empower them to attend live events. Brighton Fringe and Gig Buddies are looking to find volunteers of all ages, no matter their background, who can support adults to attend Brighton Fringe 2022. Training and support is provided, and all volunteers are police checked to ensure we are all thinking about the safety of the people we support. Gig Buddies matches up participants and volunteers based on a common interest and taste. Gig buddy pairs then meet, plan what they’ll do together, and get together at least once a month to go to an event, whether that’s a gig, concert, club night, art gallery, or other cultural events.

Herb Pharm brand strategy

Herb Pharm is a deeply respected brand among herbalists and natural health seekers, but they wanted to reach a new generation of consumers who aren't so in-the-know about their high-quality line of liquid herbal extracts. In collaboration with Maxwell PR, I helped develop the brand positioning, differentiating pillars, tagline, brand voice, and language guidance created with their new audience in mind.

College A-Level Media and Film Coursework

In order to complete my A-Level qualification for Media and Film studies, I had to produce and edit video content to be sent off as coursework. Media Studies required me to produce 3x 30 second adverts to advertise a fictional aftershave brand and this was filmed on location in Salford. For Film Studies I had to write, direct and produce a 5 minute short film which started with an enigma code and from this brief I produced "The Screening", following a protagonist who finds himself broadcasted across every technological device in his house and thus attempts to find the route of the problem. I am currently not able to upload the footage for these projects onto Youtube or Vimeo due to them being held by the exam boards however if you would like to see the full things please contact me and i'd be more than happy to showcase them.
