Testimonial

“Social Partnership Marketing's recent seminar at the London Academy of Excellence was an excellent opportunity to learn what works. Nick Ryan gave a very clear guide to how to plan and implement a wide range of activities, from setting up a fundraising or development function, through to instituting an annual, capital and even endowment campaign. It was full of practical tips on priorities and common pitfalls, all presented in an engaging, practical manner." - Howard Lake, UK Fundraising (fundraising.co.uk)
