Halpin is pleased to announce the addition of Richard Sved to its group of Consulting Fellows. Richard is an experienced professional with a strong track record of strategic and operational excellence in the voluntary sector stretching well over two decades.
Richard's key strengths lie in charity strategic planning, fundraising, governance and communications – and the parts where all of these intersect.
Richard has led the fundraising function for seven national charities, has worked with a wide range of organisations as a consultant and trainer, and has direct experience and success in most areas of fundraising, including from individuals, trusts, HLF, Big Lottery Fund and companies. He has advised a wide range of organisations on their fundraising strategy, case for support development, and business planning in recent years, including Cancer Research UK, Tommy’s, Epilepsy Society and Girlguiding.
He also has experience of policy, communications, mentoring and governance development. Richard is Founding Director of 3rd Sector Mission Control, is a Trustee of St Albans Museums & Galleries Trust, and in his spare time established The Funding Network in Hertfordshire, which has so far raised nearly £40,000 for 11 small local organisations. He has worked and volunteered for charities for over 25 years.
Joint CEO Shaun Horan comments, “Richard is well-known and respected in the sector and he brings with him a wealth of knowledge. It is a pleasure to welcome him to the team.”
