More about us and the Remarkable Partnerships approach

We are a consultancy helping charities create major, long-term corporate partnerships.

Sometimes charities wonder why their corporate partnerships aren’t growing? It could be that they are underselling themselves, or focusing on companies that don’t fit with their cause, or struggling to really engage and inspire companies.

We enable charities to improve their business development skills by being more engaging, focusing on the right prospects, developing compelling opportunities and securing more meetings with companies. In particular we focus on the importance of engaging companies on an emotional level and creating long-term, strategic corporate partnerships.
