Welcome to my websiteYou’re probably here because you’ve heard me speak on fundraising, marketing or management or you are curious about my book The Porcupine Principle. I am a regular speaker and trainer at local, regional, national and even international conferences, mainly because I am very, very cheap. If you wish to download one of my presentations, you will find them on the menu to the right.
My ‘day job’ is being the Chief Executive of Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education. I am also Chair of Chime, a social enterprise delivering audiology services in the south west. I am a Trustee of Signature, a charity that is an awarding body for sign language qualifications, and also Vice-Chair of Governors at Clyst Vale Community College.
If you want to chat about a fundraising issue, then please contact me. I can’t promise I can help, and even if I do promise that I can help it doesn’t mean I will, but in the past most people have seemed grateful for my contribution.
You are very welcome to follow me on Twitter @jpfarnhill. Go on - it’s always good to do something that practically nobody else does.
