Non-Profit and Public Sector Experience

Selected Non-Profit Experience:

A major UK emergency charity – to audit and assess the digital estate with recommendations paving the way to a future state replatform and changes to processes.


A global NGO in Ireland and UK – I used a bespoke framework with capability modelling to analyse the marketplace and potential fit of candidate marketing automation systems with analysis of vendors and recommendations.


Christian Aid – I selected and architected the digital platform solution and oversaw the build which had a range of integrations to CRM and donation software based the Tridion CMS platform and a custom Microsoft .NET front end.


Parkinson’s and MS Society – I oversaw the teams doing the Drupal CMS builds for both sites which included donation payment and discussion forums to support members.


Water Aid – I worked in parallel with the digital strategy team on a tech consultancy and strategy. I did a full technology audit and assessment, created a user story backlog, applied it to a platform capability model to select a central digital platform and create a solution architecture which included delivery partner recommendations. The solution would serve all global offices and consolidate their digital services as well as set them up for extending them to multi-channel marketing for supporters and integrations with payment and CRM systems, based on Drupal.


International Red Cross Commission – I led the strategy team gathering requirements to define a new digital platform to overcome legacy system issues that were not online optimised. The build was based on the Percussion CMS and Java applications to extend it.

We used Sitecore .NET CMS as the basis for managing national campaigns, supporter donations and information resources.

For BMA, we delivered a modern digital platform based on Sitecore CMS to overcome a complex network of disconnected systems based on legacy IBM Notes software and add personalisation and community management features via Telligent Community Server.
