Jane Selman

Business Skills Trainer

jane-selman-business-skills-trainer-profileI have been a highly successful fundraiser, development manager and freelance trainer since 1994.  Prior to that I worked in adult education and training in Bristol and Cardiff.

I have held various funding and development positions for the not for profit sector in London and Bristol.  I continue to successfully raise charitable income from a broad range of donors and philanthropic partnerships: charitable trusts, statutory contracts, events, individuals, corporate sponsorship, liveries and universities.

I have worked both sides of the fundraising fence – sitting on the grants panel for Charities Aid Foundation, as a funding adviser and trainer teaching others to fundraise and as a grant seeker for several large and small charities and not for profit organisations.  With this broad background spanning small and medium enterprises, I bring an in depth understanding of practice to fundraising and organisational development.
