As a Director of Development, the pressures on you can be intense.
Fundraising for your institution is as demanding as it is rewarding, and to succeed you must focus on your own development alongside your institution’s.
Working with a mentor with years of similar experience will pay dividends.
Shaun’s success as a mentor lies in his exceptional ability to find clarity in the most complex situations. He has over 20 years of senior-level international fundraising and has worked on complex projects spanning fundraising, strategy, equality and diversity, alumni relations and communications.
Shaun Horan, Joint CEO, Halpin

What people say about Shaun and his mentoring...
"Shaun’s professional knowledge and experience in fundraising is supreme, yet his steady, relaxed and disciplined demeanour invites meaningful dialogue no matter how testing the topic. A thoughtful and respectful listener, he offers empathy and understanding - essential qualities of excellent mentors. He is crisp in his analysis of challenges and articulate in sharing recommendations. I have gained significant confidence from his support.”
William A Roth, Executive Director, Principal Gifts, University of Toronto
"Shaun has a wonderful blend of wisdom, patience and empathy which creates a very safe and supportive environment in which to explore challenges. Over the years he’s expertly facilitated me reaching my own solutions, and intervened to provide practical counsel when I actually just need to hear how to do it from someone who’s done it. Time with Shaun is an investment in yourself and your organisation that’s well-worth making.”
Nathalie Walker, CEO, Dublin City University Educational Trust
