HollyPalmer-a-2I’m Holly and I’m enthusiastic about creating innovative strategies for fundraising, alumni relations and volunteer management. You should also know that I find rolling up my sleeves and seeing these plans to fruition really satisfying too.

With several years in higher education fundraising, my expertise is in understanding alumni and supporter audiences. I can help you to use key insights about your own alumni, donors and volunteers to lead strategic planning, design effective fundraising and communications programmes, and draw all elements of development operations together to improve the supporter experience.

I have particular expertise in planning large-scale campaigns and evaluating their success, and as a PRINCE2 qualified project manager, I have first-hand experience of delivering the ambitious programmes that underpin them.

Having worked for leading higher education institutions in the United Kingdom and New Zealand, and having been part of projects extending to China and Malaysia, I offer an international perspective to the clients I work with.

I’m currently based in Nottingham in the United Kingdom and often travel both locally and internationally.
