Flexible planning solutions for arts, non-profits and SMEs

 

So often, our carefully created strategies can seem unconnected to our day-to-day work and we might wonder whether it had all been a waste of time and effort. I’m committed to working with you to create relevant, flexible plans that help deliver those strategies and track progress. At the end of the Propel process you will not only have tailor-made action plans but also a touchstone to remind you of the big picture and that all-important ‘why’.

FOCUS
