Catherine is a delight to work with - her great strength is in working with partners to develop mutually beneficial relationships. For Social Bite, she has helped us to deepen our relationships with a range of corporate partners in a way that maximises benefit on both sides.
I really value Catherine’s ability to follow through on commitments and to muck in where necessary when projects reach a critical point. This ability is testament to her integrity and true commitment to the initiatives she takes on. She’s also a very down to earth person, who is great fun so that adds to my enjoyment of working together.
Who Cares? Scotland
Marie-Claire Jones - Director of Corporate Services
As a Business Development professional specialising in the charity sector, Catherine is adept at identifying opportunities for strategic alignment between potential investors and your cause. She does this by quickly getting under the skin of your organisation, understanding what makes you unique and therefore what your offer is for external partners. She is excellent at articulating the potential impact of new, strategic partnerships, and uses her impressive networking across private, public and third sectors to help you forge these.
On a personal level, she is warm, engaging and hugely compassionate about the causes she works with. This makes her a pleasure to work with and a real asset to those organisations which engage her.
Jacqueline Cassidy - Director (Scotland & Wales)
Catherine brings passion, perseverance and enormous insight into all our work at Place2Be. She delivers results across our business development and communications in Scotland and we're delighted to benefit from her input.
Paul Reddish - Chief Executive
Catherine delivers results, time and again. Her passion sells ideas, but it’s her rigour and understanding of what needs to be done to get deals and partnerships over the line that makes her stand out.
Good development people are hard to come by. Mainly because people with ideas that are also completer finishers are a rare breed. Catherine has both those things in spades and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to grow the work of their cause.
