East Riding College
Mike Welsh (Principal and Chief Executive) and Neil Waterman (Director: Commercial and Finance) met with Holistic to assess how we could help East Riding College to achieve its ambitious aspirations for the future.
A week-long interview and research process informed a report advising on improving communications with the wider community, building stronger links with businesses and local influencers, and leading to a long-term fundraising development operation. Various appendices listed CRM database options, prospect research companies, job descriptions, professional organisations, and an anticipated income and expenditure stream. The Holistic consultant subsequently met and briefed Governors and Fellows of ERC.
“I would not hesitate to recommend Holistic to any college looking for marketing, communications and fundraising advice. Their vision was strategically vital, their knowledge was impressive, their insights were profound, and their implementation recommendations were comprehensive.”

Holistic met Paul Corcoran, Chief Executive, and Andrew Hartley, Business Development Director, to discuss the potential for the development process at Sheffield College. The consultant produced a report outlining various ways the college could improve its visibility in the city and region, and offering strategic advice on building support within its community leading to substantial voluntary and financial support (as well as improving student and staff morale)
“The Holistic Consultant spent a week meeting our key internal and external stakeholders. He subsequently produced a detailed implementation study giving us clear guidance on how to establish a development function for Sheffield College, tied into the college’s history and ethos. This was well received by our Governors and is being embedded in our plans for the future.”
