Over the course of the past three years, Paddy’s annual consultation with our key museum development stakeholders, and the resulting reports, have helped Collections Trust focus and improve its work. The insights gained – good and bad – have tracked our progress and pointed to areas for improvement. Our board and funders now have a clearer idea of the impact we make out in the wider museum sector.
Paddy supported the National Programmes team on a successful HLF application. He came on board to support the development of training content for the application, and brought a huge wealth of knowledge and experience that added unexpected value to the application. Working with Paddy was also a complete joy. He is personable, flexible and very quick to reply during the more time-critical moments of the application writing.
Paddy developed the Society’s first membership survey in 2017 (there are over 600 members worldwide). The results – pulled together in a comprehensive and clear report – helped the Board understand what the Society’s members’ value about their membership. His conclusions and recommendations led to a strategic review, name change and rebrand.
