Amanda, fundraiser extraordinare, joins the Consider familyBy Joe Nicholson
Amanda is an accomplished Account Manager, used to delivering smoking- hot campaigns for Australia’s biggest charity names. So when she flew all the way to London from Sydney to take the UK charity world by storm, we were over the moon to welcome her to the Consider fold.
With a career that kicked off in retail advertising, Amanda can take the most challenging of briefs in her stride. But before long, she realised that weeks spent promoting processed cheese wasn’t exactly floating her boat…
…so she made the move into a fundraising agency, and she hasn’t looked back. She quickly mastered the nuts and bolts of not-for-profit marketing, absorbing decades of fundraising know-how. Equally comfortable working with DM or digital marketing, she won’t accept anything but the best for her clients.
A passion for human rights and justice is part of Amanda’s DNA. Her family left Vietnam as refugees, so she’s grown up with a firm belief in helping disadvantaged people – that’s why she can’t wait to help our clients make even more of a difference.
Outside the office, Amanda unwinds by travelling, exploring the best her new city has to offer – and in true Aussie-in-Europe style, plans to tick off as many destinations as possible, sampling the best food this continent has to offer.
And Amanda’s rather an aficionado for niche pop culture, too. Whether it’s Korea’s hottest K-Pop, a classic horror movie or a fantasy novel, something’s always grabbing her interest – which is only a good thing, as she tries to get used to more time indoors in these distinctly cooler climes…
A fundraiser extraordinaire with a wry wit and unfailing commitment to her clients, we couldn’t be happier to have Amanda with us.
