Carolin was the just right person at just the right time for us. We needed someone to help us up our fundraising game, and to design a strategy that met our unique needs. Carolin was able to learn the ins and outs of our organization quickly, and provided solid suggestions for reimagining the fundraising landscape for the Children’s Radio Foundation. She helped us set realistic goals, and provided a clear guide to get there. Her knowledge of the donor landscape is extensive, and reaches far beyond South Africa.

Deinen Report habe ich mit großem Interesse gelesen und danke Dir für Deine Mühe. Du hast wirklich ein sehr gutes Talent, alles wunderbar zusammenzufassen und in Worte zu kleiden. Großes Kompliment! Du hast einen super Job gemacht, alles toll analysiert und uns den Weg in die Zukunft gewiesen!

The outcome of our workshop with The Workroom was a clear understanding of the link between our organisational strategy and core values, and the fundraising strategy we adopt. With that in mind fundraising is not something we do in addition to our “actual” work, it is inextricably linked to our work. That realisation has shifted the way we view and do fundraising! Thank you for your time and expertise.

Carolin has contributed greatly to the development of our work and of clearly defining our goals and strategies. Her calm demeanor and consistent work ethic has helped to create a space that is intentional and meaningful; we have been very lucky to be able to work and engage with The Workroom!

Carolin is a thoughtful and engaged practitioner who was able to accurately capture GFSA’s strategic vision, at the same time as being able to drill down into some of the detail, demonstrating an extraordinarily fine appreciation of the nuances and complexity of our work and the way in which we work. She is curious about organisations and organising in the current context both in South Africa and globally and provided a space for enquiry and reflection. Her recommendations included some very practical immediate actions as well as some innovative ideas for reframing how we think about ourselves and our role in helping to build a vision for a more just and equitable world. Carolin is a delight and pleasure to work with.
