The Well Foundation engaged Clive and Iyanthi to assess the feasibility of a potential capital campaign and provide our board with the key requirements for it to run successfully. Clive and Iyanthi’s knowledge of fundraising strategy, structure and execution is outstanding. They conducted numerous face to face interviews with leading philanthropists and provided detailed reports which gave us insights and user-friendly analysis, against a capital campaign context, so our board and team could make robust decisions. Their networks and knowledge of the market were exceptional and I would thoroughly recommend their services.

I have known and worked with Clive and Iyanthi for a number of years now.  Over that time they have worked on a successful capital raising project for me and assisted my group with major donor strategy work.  Their approach is strategic, very thorough and disciplined yet they are able to always inject the right amount of creativity and laterally thinking into the mix.  They are immensely resilient, strategically agile, committed and never stop until the job is done.  It always feels like you have a true partner on board when you have the opportunity to work with them.

‘Knowledgeable, skilful and generous in the extreme’ are the first thoughts that come to mind when I think about working with Clive and Iyanthi. Together they make a formidable team.
I have worked with Clive and Iyanthi over a number of years and they are currently helping Coastguard with a complex partnership project in Canterbury. They have been flexible and patient as we have dealt with numerous changes and challenges.
Clive has a wonderful ability to bring a group of people with differing ideas and priorities together and unite them with a plan to take the project to the next stage. Iyanthi brings expertise and delivers it with professionalism and genuine warmth ensuring everyone gets on board with enthusiasm. It is an ongoing joy to work with them.
No matter how challenging or even frustrating a situation is, Clive and Iyanthi have a depth of experience and skill that means they are able to defuse the situation and come up with inventive and workable solutions.
I absolutely welcomed this opportunity to recommend Clive and Iyanthi, they enjoy my utmost respect.

Clive is value-driven, creative, innovative and passionate about fundraising and philanthropy.  His enthusiastic and exciting approach to his work is engaging and contagious.  I have got to know Clive through serving together on the CFRE International Board.  Having worked with leaders in the non-profit sector in all corners of the world for a number of years, I have found Clive’s insights, initiatives and knowledge about best-practice fundraising to be of the highest standard.  In addition, he has a message about social investment innovation that the world needs to hear. To know Clive and to work with him is both a privilege and a gift.

Clive has shown me that professional fundraisers can truly add significant value. His strategic thinking, drive and leadership have been fundamental to our success and I always come away thinking he has given more than he has taken. Clive is a true professional, who I hold in the highest regard.

I have known Clive for a few years now and continue to be impressed by his energy and commitment to the sector. He is tireless!  There is no doubt he is good at what he does, but in my mind there are some additional attributes that are standouts, his commitment to charity successes, fundraising professional development, the NZ peak body (FINZ),  and international standards and education for fundraisers. Additionally he thinks strategically, he is creative and innovative while committed to the highest ethical standards. Clive is the complete package, he is a great ambassador for New Zealand in the global fundraising arena.
