“I love working with courageous social sector leaders, who have a strong desire to change the world, challenge status quo and work collaboratively within and across sectors.”


Tiffany has worked in the development sector for 20 years, first as a fundraiser and then as a CEO and Trustee of four different organisations. Her specialism is scaling and restructuring NGOs within challenging climates, attracting funds, campaigning and collaborative working. She has worked with projects in 11 different countries throughout Asia, Africa and Latin America steering global strategies, merging organisations and seeding new initiatives. As someone who has reported to and sat on NGO Boards, Tiffany fully understand the demands, pressures and often isolation of senior roles.  Which is why, in 2021, she set up her own consultancy and coaching business to stand alongside NGO senior management teams, support them through pivotal change and co-create new ventures.


Currently training to be a Playing Big Facilitator with Tara Mohr – supporting women to step into their full potential and have greater impact through their voices and their contribution.

Waverley Learning are very vested in what they’re doing, very committed. They’re dynamic individually and collectively, they are 100% invested to the learners when they go into a program, it really is a sense of ownership of the experience that I don’t necessarily always see with every other vendor or learning partner that we use.
Lisa Smisek - Director of Learning, Kearney
There’s a credibility and a humility that you just sense when you’re engaging with Waverley Learning. I’m personally very drawn to that.
Karen Brown - Director of People and Talent, Tearfund
It is the extent to which Waverley Learning understood all the requirements, the innovation that they brought, the talent they brought. Their whole style takes the frantic pace at which we work out of the equation, the messages comes through really clearly. They’ve tuned into the challenges of our organization and made observations that have given us added value. It’s always based on our needs.
Alison Maher - Head of Learning, GWR
Their Developing Skills course consistently gets the best feedback of any standard developmental course that we offer. They’re clearly doing something right in terms of engagement, for those individuals to realise their own development within that situation. Waverley Learning listen to what’s going on, the chats that they’re having with my colleagues. They’re able to play that back, this is what’s going on in your business. As an organization, they provide great insight into to us.
