If you are a Director, CEO or Chair of a charity what keeps you awake at night?

  • Struggling to prove the difference you are making to your beneficiaries?
  • Declining income, lower engagement and increased attrition among supporters?
  • More complaints appearing on your board papers?
  • Being in the media or political crossfire for your work?
  • Wanting to know how best to attract and retain the most committed staff?
  • Rapidly shifting global trends that leave you unsure where to go next?
  • Running a ‘growing portfolio of stuff’ without really being certain ‘why?’
  • Uncertainty as to where your charity will be in five, ten, twenty years’ time?

Our secret sauce is not secret.  Our take is unique.

  • Outrageous Impact’s approach is based on a process called Human Centered Design.
  • This is a set of publicly available thinking and working processes that say if you want to build products, services, campaigns that people really love using make sure you involve the end-user throughout.
  • Outrageous Impact brings together Human Centered Design and a track record of winning campaigns, to help you win your issue sooner.

We will teach you a simple, repeatable, powerful process.

  1. We conduct research to better understand the needs and wants of your beneficiaries, supporters and others that matter to your organisation.
  2. Together with your team, we rapidly build and test improved ways of meeting the needs of supporters and beneficiaries.
  3. Throughout we teach you how this works, so you can roll it out again and again – continually refining, learning and responding to the changing needs of your people.
  4. We will be on hand to guide you, to help you win more sooner.
