More about us and the Remarkable Partnerships approach

We are a consultancy helping charities create major, long-term corporate partnerships. Jonathan Andrews and Royston Abernethy have over 20 years experience delivering corporate partnerships results.

Sometimes charities wonder why their corporate partnerships aren’t growing? It could be that they are underselling themselves, or focusing on companies that don’t fit with their cause, or struggling to really engage and inspire companies.

So what we do is enable charities to be more engaging, focus on the right prospects, develop compelling opportunities and secure more meetings with companies. In particular we focus on the importance of engaging companies on an emotional level and creating long-term, strategic corporate partnerships.
