Transformational independent consultant dedicated to impact with integrity and compassion.
I am here to help and support you so please let me know if what you need is not outlined here.
An unexpected absence of a key member of your management team due to long-term ill-health, maternity leave, or an unexpected resignation, can impact heavily on your charity and can throw well laid plans in to confusion.
Periodic change is essential if Trustees are to meet the challenge of operating a charity in the 21st century. Sometimes staff and Trustees are too close to the issues to be objective. Through experience working as a Chief Executive in the charity sector, and as a charity Trustee, I can help find a way through the minefield of change management and strategic planning, working with Trustees, staff, and other stakeholders to achieve positive outcomes.
Having a business mentor can help you to focus, to look at your business from a different perspective. This is essential to identify strategies and opportunities for improvement and growth
I will shape sessions to meet your specific needs. This can mean formal training for trustee boards and senior leaders, a strategy review or the facilitation of workshops or away-days.
Whether you are a regional charity or a community group working at a local level, when you sign up for on-going support from me, you can be confident in the knowledge that you have the advice and reassurance from someone who has hands on proven experience of developing charities.
It takes place every day; you are approached by a fundraiser on the street, a friend asks you to support a good cause, an advertisement in the newspaper or an appeal on TV urges you to help. The list of such encounters is endless, especially since the development of digital marketing and social media. So how do we make a sound social investment that has impact?If you would like help refining your questions and identifying the individual charities I can help.

“When D’Arcy was appointed interim CEO of Wikimedia UK he arrived at a time of change and uncertainty. During his tenure D’Arcy has dealt most effectively with a number of difficult issues including a full staff restructure with fairness, care and sensitivity, and he has without fuss gained the full support of the board. D’Arcy has been generous with his fundraising experience and his extensive personal contacts, and has all the ease and presence needed to raise the charity’s profile and maintain its reputation with our potential and actual supporters. I can strongly recommend him."
Michael Magg, Chair of Trustees Wikimedia UK
“D’Arcy facilitated a fantastic away day for me, focussed on developing my consultancy and coaching business. He was well-prepared, supportive, challenging and motivating – exactly what I needed. I came away with a clear purpose, masses of ideas on taking my business forward and a real boost in my confidence to do it all. I would heartily recommend D’Arcy to anyone looking to develop themselves or their business. His calm and positive approach is both an antidote to crazy work life and a springboard for ideas and development!”
Emma Ferrey, Owner, Tillian Consultancy
"D'Arcy joined the film and television industry charity the CTBF as Interim CEO at a very challenging time for the Charity. Rather than simply act as a "safe pair of hands" to steady the ship, D'Arcy truly embraced the challenges and set about utilising his great skill, experience and enthusiasm to working across the organisation to set about a transformative change programme from within. He saw the potential of the team, the trustees and the industry and has been instrumental in galvanising that to great effect. A wonderful, thoughtful and quietly determined leader."
Cameron Saunders, MD UK Theatrical 20th Century Fox, Trustee CTBF
"D’Arcy is an excellent facilitator. He brings imagination and insight to the task and knows how to engage a group, when to stay silent and when to intervene. The result is that people feel encouraged and enabled to work as a team, focus on the task at hand and come up with solutions."
Simon Whittle, Chair of Trustees Time and Talents
