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.

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.

for those that have never written a strategy
The ultimate coaching package for those that have never written a fundraising strategy, this programme helps you to create an effective fundraising strategy from scratch, that will generate an accountable return on investment.
We will perform an initial diagnostic, where we will assess what your strategy needs to do, how it will sit within your organisation, and what objectives it should have. Then, every month, we will have a half day one to one strategy session to develop each section of the strategy, exploring the foundations that need to be in place, and the process of creating a successful strategy step by step.
At the end of the 6 months, you will have a fundraising strategy that is built on strong foundations, to make it as successful as possible.

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.
