Over 10 years experience
I am committed to helping people to help nature wherever they live and work. My aim through Vision Wild is to realize more conservation success stories, championed by local communities.
I do this by working closely with land managers and project teams to achieve BIGGER and BETTER project results, specifically for species and habitat recovery.
SERVICES FOR LAND MANAGERS & CONSERVATION ORGANISATIONS>
As a qualified project manager, I offer a range of services for land owners, wildlife conservation NGO's and estate managers. I provide the expertise to get projects off the ground from planning and fundraising through to delivery and monitoring.
I always deliver cost-effective, pragmatic solutions that fit the needs of the people I work with. I use proven frameworks and effective tools to improve the conservation impact of species and landscape projects.
Key services I offer include>
Conservation project design - see example
Organisational strategic planning - see example
Qualified project management services including implementation, proposal writing and problem-solving.
Easy and affordable biodiversity monitoring & evaluation (M&E), otherwise known as impact monitoring
Facilitation of for community and stakeholder workshops
The above services can be delivered as one-off contracts; workshops; secondments; remote support or 'pay-as-you-go' relationships, depending on your requirements and budget. I am available for projects based in the UK and overseas, depending on availability.
My services apply to all stages of a project's lifetime, and can be used to (for example); improve the impact of long-term projects; decide rescue interventions for difficult projects; or, design initiatives with land managers from scratch, providing solid foundations for new projects.
"Victoria was an excellent facilitator. The exercises were extremely thought-provoking, and she encouraged us to think in-depth about different elements of the Foundation's work in a clear and concise manner."
