Organisational Reviews

Stephen and his associates have all worked in key management positions across the cultural sector so we understand many of the issues facing boards and senior executives in arts companies.

We also appreciate how hard it is for arts organisations to continue to deliver quality work on reduced financial resources and the need to constantly develop new sources of support. Our organisational reviews have helped companies such as Swindon Dance, Dance East, the Silk Heritage Trust in Macclesfield and the Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells to move forward in a creative and sustainable way.

In 2016 Stephen was appointed Interim Chief Executive of The Place in London and during this period he led a review of governance for the Contemporary Dance Trust. In the last few months Stephen has completed a Governance Review of Anvil Arts in Basingstoke and has been asked by the Board to Chair the Nominations Committee to recruit several new trustees and a Chair Designate.
