Moving from ‘victim’ to ‘survivor’ changes lives and raises millions.
While at Stroke Association, Patrick launched the ‘Life After Stroke’ campaign. He led a team that engaged 2,000 stroke survivors and carers to find out what they needed to get ‘back to life’ after stroke.
This led to three reports that delivered high-profile changes, such as moving Stroke Association into the Top 50 of the ‘Charity Brand Index’, establishing new guidelines for the treatment of childhood stroke, securing a £1 million NHS above-the-line advertising spend (to highlight the dangers of mini-stroke), changing the Care Act 2014, raising over £800,000 in income, bringing in 20,000 new email subscribers and helping secure partnerships with firms including Legal & General and a £2 million partnership with Royal Mail.

Helping humanitarian aid organisation develop a new strategy.
Ross Bailey, External Relations & Advocacy Manager, Islamic Relief UK:
“I worked with Outrageous Impact to create a strategic plan for my External Relations and Advocacy Team. Patrick helped me break down a complex set of possibilities into an actionable set of options.
Patrick ran a two-day workshop with stakeholders across my organisation to help test and design our plan. Feedback from my colleagues was great and they left really bought in. I’d recommend Patrick for anyone looking for support on strategy, planning or design.”
