Arts Management

I can provide a range of services and training for the arts and cultural industry:


I have experience on a variety of Boards and specialise in doing confidential reviews of Board performance.


It’s hard for arts managers to take leave, get refreshed, undertake training. I can travel and take on short to medium locum stints with arts and cultural organisations.


Sometimes it’s good to have an outsider review an organisation’s structures, policies, positions, morale, culture, board and management. I can bring years of experience to such reviews and do them in a timely and cost effective way.


I can teach a range of arts management topics including leadership, people management, board management and strategic planning either as one off lecturers, seminars or within academic frameworks.


Capturing the real vision of an organisation and turning such vision into a practical business plan in a consultative process can provide an organisation with a fresh start. I have the communication skills and strategic planning experience to help organisations plan.
