Dominique Jones, Philanthropy Manager, Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art


Jason’s years of fundraising and phone-a-thon experience in Australia and overseas were very beneficial for us. He worked closely with us to understand our needs and help deliver a program that has been a resounding success.  He was very efficient and responsive to our needs and delivered a custom built solution within the allocated timeframe

Sarah Hampel, Director of Development and Marketing, St Mark’s College


Jason brings insight and a brilliant understanding of the major donor journey. It wasn’t long before I put his methods into practice and now each and every donor visit is focused and productive. I know what to ask and how to listen. I am now seeing the returns on my commitment as donors become more engaged as we move them strategically through the donor cycle.

Nick Cartwright, Philanthropy Coordinator, The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation


I’ve worked with Jason for a couple of months as part of his Philanthropy coaching sessions and they have been extremely valuable. Jason is very thorough with his time and ensures he provides context, relatable examples, and role plays of specific scenarios. I definitely recommend him as a mentor or a coach to anybody entering the industry, or wanting to hone their skills
