Recent Work:

All training outlined below can be adapted to meet your organisation’s needs or training can be developed to meet your specific needs.

I have delivered training on researching and writing a National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) Activity Plan that has been delivered to a number of organisations including National Maritime Museum, South London Gallery, St Leonard’s Church Flamstead and many more!

I have delivered training on an introduction to decolonising your museum to Norfolk Museums Service, Ipswich Museum and as part of SHARE East conference.

I developed and delivered a whole day workshop on ‘Knowing and growing your audiences to achieve NHLF funding’ for the Association of Pall Mall Libraries.

For Colchester and Ipswich Museums I have delivered a whole day workshop on ‘Running successful and meaningful Focus Groups’.

As part of my work with St Leonard’s Church I have delivered training to a group of volunteers on ‘How to deliver successful and meaningful consultation’.

Whilst researching and writing Ipswich Museum’s Round 1 Activity Plan we established that Decolonisation was to be a key tenet for the redisplay of this museum.  As a result I have developed training that simplifies and explains what is decolonisation and how it can be used as a form of interpretation and engagement in museums.  This has been delivered to Ipswich Museum; as part of the SHARE Museums East Conference and also for Norfolk Museums Service.

Delivering training and mentoring for SHARE East on co-creating Community Cabinets for a cross-section of volunteer, local authority and independent museums.

Organised and delivered conference for museum professionals and ESOL providers on ‘Engaging Migrant Workers through Museums’

Delivered a number of talks for Museums Association, Group for Education in Museums, MLAs and local museums on various aspects of my work.

Please contact me if you would like one of these workshops or you have another idea that you think I can help with.
