Developing Strategy and New Business Models

We can work with you in a structured process to deliver strategy. This can be a sprint project with key stakeholders in a room. Or we can create whole organisational engagement across countries, languages, time zones and cultures. With =-mc consulting there’s no one cookie cutter model. We create a systematic but flexible process to suit you and the challenges you face.

We’re the leading exponents of the Strategy Map model in the not-for-profit world, having conducted almost 30 strategic engagements with global agencies including UNICEF, International Red Cross and Red Crescent and Amnesty International.  We also help smaller domestic charities to improve their focus. Using Red Ocean Blue Ocean thinking and  the Business Model Canvas we can help you identify the best framework to build a radical new business models.

Transforming Your Fundraising

Fundraising is changing as the world is changing. Globally fewer people are giving, but those who are giving are giving more- whether that’s low level sustainers, HNWI, one-off individuals, or those who might consider a bequest or legacy.

Over the last 30 + years =mc consulting have designed  and delivered more large scale fundraising strategies than any other consultancy. We’ve twice designed the world’s largest not-for-profit global strategy, shaping a $50B target for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. But we also value our work with smaller agencies, and have helped raise $5M for MEF museum in Patagonia to house the world’s largest dinosaur skeleton, $2M to save the last 800 gorillas in Rwanda and $10M for the Southbank Centre, Europe’s largest arts organisation in London.

Building Commercial Awareness and Earned Income

Earned income looks increasingly attractive for many not-profit agencies. With this funding source any surpluses are your own, unrestricted and sustainable, helping you plan for the future with confidence.

=mc consultants can work with you to identify new commercial opportunities, to exploit existing assets or to develop powerful sales and marketing strategies. We can also promote competence and confidence in department and teams on the importance of commercial awareness.

Our business-savvy team has worked with organisations as diverse as RSPCA, US Olympics Committee and the National Trust, helping them build robust income from B2B and B2C propositions. We’ve built commercial awareness, developed Value Propositions, and secured vital extra finances for Local Authorities from inner city Hackney to rural East Lindsey and by-the-sea Plymouth.

Using Decision Science to Increase Impact

Developments in behavioural science are changing everything– from how we dealt with Covid, to the course of political elections, and from the way we fundraise to our understanding of tackling social exclusion. You can’t afford to not to be up to date with what works in the field.

That’s why we have a specialist team able to offer advice and support on how you can apply behavioural and decision science to your fundraising, your advocacy, your communications, your stakeholder engagement, your organisational culture and more.

The team can bring insights from neuroscience, evolutionary psychology, and behavioural economics to whatever challenges you face. Using these techniques we’ve helped Edinburgh Zoo transform online income and engagement, Bristol Museums welcome visitors back after Covid closure, and Nelson Mandela University, South Africa transform brand awareness.
