Recommendations

Here are some lovely people saying lovely things…

“I have worked with Mark and Moving Thinking for years as a client and not only is he extremely insightful in understanding our audience and how to communicate with them, he also consistently delivers relevant and current sector knowledge. He brings with him a range of professional skills which have meant he’s been a real asset in terms of strategic support and project delivery. He is also one of the easiest people you could find to work with. All in all I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.” Catherine Cottrell, Deputy Executive Director, UNICEF UK

“We have worked with Mark and Moving Thinking for a number of years on some large impactful projects. We are proud of the relationship we have with Moving Thinking as I really feel that we work collaboratively and use the tools Mark supplies to up-skill our teams. Mark’s knowledge and his approachable and professional nature mean that he is well respected and we enjoy working together.” Julian Holmes-Taylor, Assistant Director of Income Generation, RSPCA

‘Mark helped CLIC Sargent put together a long-term individual giving strategy. As a result of our strategy we have significantly increased our income, changed the way we are structured and have improved our thinking. Mark has continued to help us with our strategy development. He provides a really tailored approach, he is insightful, fun to work with and seems to be driven by adding value to his clients.” James Spears, Head of Individual Giving, CLIC Sargent

“I was thoroughly impressed when I saw Mark present at the Institute of Fundraising Convention. He’d been working with one of the top ten charity brands so I didn’t think we’d be able to afford to use Moving Thinking. We wanted to conduct a full portfolio analysis across fundraising. Mark worked with us to create a solution that met all our objectives whilst up-skilling the team but importantly within our budget constraints. The results were hugely enlightening and gave us the confidence to re-direct our fundraising for the better. Mark’s approach is clear, straightforward and he always manages to make strategy fun! I thoroughly recommend you get in touch with this hugely talented outfit.” Sonya Trivedy, Fundraising Director, Terrence Higgins Trust

“What’s great about Moving Thinking is that we can access Mark’s skills and experience cost effectively, and for a charity with a small budget such as ours, this is a real bonus.  Mark’s first project with was to develop our capacity in-house to deliver creative, giving us the process and structure to enable us to go from a creative brief to concept. We now have concepts successfully developed by our own staff, which we have taken forward for our supporter appeals. I would fully recommend Mark and Moving Thinking.” Shaman Amini, Head of Direct Marketing, Care International

“Mark is one of the most talented people working in the NGO sector. He combines really smart thinking with a pragmatic approach to problem solving. He is also a joy to work with.”
 Ian Prager, Director, MC&C

“I’ve worked with Mark over the last five years and he has provided great input into the development of the RNLI’s supporter development and legacy fundraising. He has excellent insight on the trends, challenges and opportunities in the fundraising sector and has made a significant contribution to our fundraising strategy.”
 Richard Popper, Head of Central Fundraising, RNLI

“Mark’s innovative, brave, witty and wise. I’d like to think he learned all that whilst working at Dogs Trust.” Adrian Burder, Marketing Director, Dogs Trust

“For many years Mark provided great advice and insight to the Brooke’s donor marketing/fundraising programme. Our income has grown massively during that time and Mark played an important role in that success.
Mark is great at identifying trends and patterns within and beyond a programme – and then translating that into practical recommendations and plans that make a real difference to success. Mark is able to see beyond what is being achieved at the moment, to identify opportunities for growth and development. He gets under the skin of a charity, understands its team, ambitions, programme and, most importantly, its supporters – I’ve found his instinct of what will work to be very good.
Mark’s confident, creative and logical approach inspires belief and his warm, pragmatic manner and sense of humour means he is a pleasure to work with, especially during demanding times.”
 Sharon Schofield, Fundraising Director, The Brooke
