RMD Consulting – Charity and Not-for-Profit Consultants

RMD Consulting – Charity and Not-for-Profit Consultants is led by Dr Roger Donbavand.

Roger’s 30 year experience in strategy, marketing and branding both in the commercial world and then transitioning into the charity and not-for-profit sector makes him perfectly placed to help charities and not-for-profits become more business-like, while retaining their original mission.

The third sector is overcrowded, confusing and everyone is wanting to get hold of donors – individual or corporate. Government funding is declining.

Not-for-profit organisations need to be more savvy, sharper, more effective in what they do and how they promote themselves. They need to be more distinctive and focussed in what they offer. They need to engage effectively with their donors, clients and other stakeholders.

If this is the challenge facing your organisation then RMD Consulting can help you. This NFP consulting is ONLY what we do; BUT we do it cost effectively. If you are unsure what you need, please do contact us for a no obligation discussion.
