CEO
Shakespeare Schools Festival

As a CEO I need to know how fundraising works. The NAFS programme gave me that strategic overview — and helped me see what my role could be in delivering a sustainable programme. It also helped me focus our energies to where the money was. A terrific insight for a CEO.

Whilst I had specialist knowledge and experience in Trusts, NAFS enabled me to expand my skill sets and get up to date practice and knowledge, which has transformed my fundraising career. It built up my confidence and helped me build new networks.

Today our team received about £1.5M funding for the reconstruction of the Museum of Sculpture in Moscow. Thank you for the inspiration, insights – and everything. The School was really easy to adapt to my situation in Russia. The programme proved that key fundraising principles are pretty universal.
