Lianne has over 12 years’ experience within the fundraising sector, including four and a half years at Christian Aid, where for over three of those years, Lianne led the central community fundraising team to support delivery of all community fundraising products and supporter engagement.
Following her time at Christian Aid, Lianne went on to become YMCA’s Community Fundraising Development Manager as well as being a Founding Member of the Supporter Experience Collective.
Two years ago, Lianne became a freelance Fundraising Consultant. “Having worked for a variety of causes & sized organisations, I understand the day to day pressures that fundraisers are under. The last year has really highlighted that organisations are not just looking for fundraising to deliver new products, but instead, they need fundraisers who can think laterally and establish new ways of working, internally and with supporters. Now more than ever fundraising teams have to be more agile and responsive in order to engage their supporters and maximise opportunities.
Whilst at Christian Aid, I led their flagship appeal which meant managing a multidisciplinary project team. During this time, I learnt a lot about the importance and need for collaboration, and how we continuously needed to be innovating to stay ahead.” Lianne joined Corndel as a Professional Development Expert in May 2021.
