Coaching for Fundraisers

Helping you raise funds effectively, efficiently & affordably

Amber Consulting specialises in working with the fundraiser in your organisation to help them become better at what they do, through both professional and personal development, that could mean more confident, more proactive, more creative, more reflective, calmer, more assertive or greater income generation.

As a coach I provide the time and space for the fundraiser to work out how they could work more effectively with their donors or in their team. We will explore new ways of working to gain better results, trying out new behaviours and models of effective communication and interaction with others.

These realistic & highly supportive coaching programmes make your fundraising the best it can be, simply choose the one that best suits your needs, or get in contact for something more bespoke.

I found working with Julia extremely beneficial to build and increase my confidence within the workplace. Working within Fundraising can be challenging at times, but definitely rewarding. Bringing myself outside of the office environment during our sessions brought new ideas to the table and I feel like I have grown within my role throughout the last 8 months due to my coaching sessions.

Thanks Julia, and thanks for inspiring me every week, it’s really being a huge help!

"Julia did fantastic one to one coaching with our Partnerships and Philanthropy Specialist at National AIDS Trust. Over a series of weeks, Julia helped him both in his ideas and approach externally and how he operated more effectively internally. He loved it and was energised, motivated and full of new ideas."

With Julia's ongoing support I went from being incredibly sceptical of my ability to be a good fundraiser to an incredibly successful one. I found her to be an extremely approachable and knowledgeable individual and I am hugely grateful for all of her input over the years. If you are thinking of giving coaching a try I would absolutely recommend Julia. In my opinion she is the best in the business.

Coaching for Confidence

for those that would like a confidence booster


People tell you that you are a good fundraiser but you don’t believe them. 

You think you are just lucky and no better than any other fundraiser.

You’d like to feel as confident as everyone thinks you are, you fool people with your smile, but inside you think you are an imposter.

Over 6 or 12 sessions, each of 1 hour, we will work towards your goal. Looking at ways to improve your confidence. We will discuss people pleaser attributes, resilience, imposter syndrome, setting boundaries, saying no, as well as work/life balance and values.

The areas covered will vary depending upon the number of sessions and your personal attributes.

Career Coaching

for those that want to go one step further


Do you know where you want to be in 5 years?

Do you plan to be a Director of Fundraising?

Is something holding back your career development?

Is your fundraising great, but your managing people skills need developing?

Have you had a couple of interviews and not got the job?

 Coaching can help you get some objective feedback and develop as an individual we can look at: Emotional intelligence, techniques for dealing with difficult people, understanding the drives and motivations of individuals you work with, reflect on your leadership style, and look at the different ways of managing introverts and extroverts.

 We establish your goal and over 6 or 12 months, on a monthly phone call, we will investigate how the way that you interact with others, shapes relationships and can affect your ambition.

We will use some or all the models mentioned above, keeping our focus on your goal.

These sessions are led by what you, the coachee, wants or needs from them.
