"Thank you for your insightful advice. It's really helped us focus on strengthening the future funding of our organisation. The money that we spent on two hours of consulting has really been well invested."
"This has already been worth the fee for the two hours I booked. Where do you get your great ideas from? You have given me wonderful advice."
"Jill's knowledge of her field, her genuine interest in the work of the Children's Institute, and her lively critical engagement with our ideas and publications were immensely helpful to our fundraising and donor development efforts... our sense of direction is much stronger as a result of her guidance."
“In business, there are a number of critical decisions to make. One of those, is ensuring you have a solid, passionate and committed team that work together with you in attaining your goals. Jill and the Papillon team provide so much more than just honest support and guidance, but the wealth of their experience, their amazing support and true caring, has meant so much to me as a CEO of a non profit organisation. Jill and her team take a personal interest in their clients, so much so, that she develops friendships rather than clients. They have been instrumental in helping us grow Living Waters, and are one of our essential business partners.”
"Jill Ritchie was
required to set up our fundraising department virtually from scratch.
She has the unique ability to identify opportunities both at work and
in her private life which could be of benefit to the organisation. She
is a born networker and was able to identify many opportunities for the
Triple Trust which we would have otherwise missed."
"Jill was highly proactive and innovative in her approach and worked closely with our international prospects to ascertain their needs. Her experience of the donor community with whom she has worked extensively was very valuable to us. This was especially evident in her interaction with the South African Lottery. She is a real professional in her field and met every deadline set during the time she worked for us. She is assertive, yet is able to work well with both staff and volunteers in a team situation."

and significantly raised the profile of St John amongst the donor community.
All this in difficult, rapidly changing and thus extremely trying circumstances."

oil spill, SANCCOB required fundraising assistance at short notice. Jill
Ritchie and her team climbed in and developed a fundraising programme,
which not only brought in much needed funding, created considerable awareness
of SANCCOB, but also good fun was had by all. Of note was the their willingness
to go well beyond what was required of them. Many thanks for a highly successful
and professional effort."
