Hi, I'm Ned Wells.

I help social enterprises and charities to build capacity and generate earned income through better marketing strategies and business systems. Often, this means supporting and coaching client teams, helping them to think strategically and deliver at pace.

"Ned's brought some great strategic thinking to our digital marketing work, helping us to pinpoint where we might have most impact and designing the tools and resources we need to get ourselves noticed."

Graham Duxbury, Chief Executive Officer, Groundwork UK

"Ned’s support has been crucial to our successful journey as a relatively new business over the past few years – alongside providing additional capacity; extensive skills and knowledge in areas such as marketing and communications, he also brings emotional intelligence and a shared set of values to the table – things which are equally important to us."

Mike Ormerod, Head of Central Services, BDSIP Ltd.

"I can’t recommend Ned highly enough and have thoroughly enjoyed working with him. He’s guided us through a complex marketing strategy and plan, providing sound advice and working diligently to ensure Groundwork secures the best possible outcome."

Garry Campbell, Head of Policy & Communications, Groundwork UK

Ned helped us to accurately shape our website brief, take it to market, and managed the process to successful conclusion. His ability to do this so effectively is underpinned by his style which is authoritative, highly collaborative, and outcome orientated.

Ben Spinks, Chief Executive Officer, BDSIP

"Ned provided us with the opportunity to think outside of our day jobs - bringing together people from across different businesses within our network.

He helped us to create a business strategy which really challenges us to consider how we're going to grow our programme, setting aspirational growth targets and how to get past the barriers preventing us currently.

I'd highly recommend working with Ned - he's been a positive force for change in our organisation."

Emily Thompson, Fuel Poverty & Climate Change Director, Groundwork in the North
