“Direct personal experience from harnessing incredible acts of generosity, many millions of dollars over the years, has given insights and experience for me to advise social purpose organisations in New Zealand every day.”
Clive has been advising, coaching and training for growth in the social purpose sector in New Zealand and Australia since 2000. During that time he has been responsible for raising tens of millions for many of New Zealand’s leading charities. He is well regarded as a thought leader, an informed, enthusiastic practitioner and practical presenter. Clive is a former President of the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand (FINZ) from 2011 to 2013, was a member of the FINZ National Council from 2009 to 2015 and was named a fellow of the Fundraising Institute of New Zealand in May 2014.
He was the first New Zealander appointed to the Board of CFRE International in 2014, a global accreditation organisation for over senior fundraisers worldwide. In December 2015 Clive was appointed to the International Advisory Panel of the Rogare Think Tank on international fundraising ethics, part of the Centre for Sustainable Philanthropy at Plymouth University in the UK.
In 2017 Clive was appointed to the Responsible Investment Association of Australia Impact Investment Forum committee and has been directly involved in establishing New Zealand’s inaugural Impact Investment Advisory Board. This level of international engagement has led to a sound understanding of traditional philanthropy and emerging international best practice in areas such as social impact investment.
