In addition to the one to one mentoring and coaching assignments strategic reviews of marketing, fundraising and communications activities can be undertaken. Such reviews and audits can allow incumbent or incoming directors responsible for such functions the time and space to continue operational duties and avoid overload issues for teams working hard to deliver on existing priorities. This is particularly important for Marketing and Fundraising activities.
