Daryl Upsall Consulting International (DUCI) would like to congratulate Delia Pop on her new role of Director for Tanya´s Dream Initiative.

Swiss Philanthropy Foundation hosts this philanthropic fund created at the initiative of Oak Foundation and aimed at shifting the focus from institutional care for children to family and community-based care by 2025, Delia, a strong global advocate for children´s rights, has been appointed to lead this effort.

This is what Delia had to say about the process:

Excellent recruitment agency, highly professional, very supportive and effective in ensuring the applicant needs for information are adequately met whilst bringing the best candidates for the organizations looking to recruit. Fantastic agency to work with.”

Presiana Manolova, member of the steering committee for this initiative, also added:

The services provided by DUCI are of high quality. The team is very professional and of great help in finding the best candidate for the position.”

It was my first recruitment with Daryl Upsall and Karem (Armstrong), though Oak has partnered with the DUCI for a long time. I found Karem’s guidance and explanation of the process very helpful. She discussed with me the main steps and I was aware of the stage the process was in. Karem answered all my questions and replied to my emails quickly. At the end, we are very happy with the recruited Director.”

Congratulations to Delia and all the best in fulfilling Tanya´s Dream!

Fundraising loses one of its unsung heroes and a personal friend in Marie Burnett

DUA DUCI

As Roger Craver informs us in his Agitator article (see link below) and in the various comments that follow from fundraising folks from around the world, that we have lost a dear colleague and friend in Marie Burnett, who lost the fight against cancer this weekend. Daryl Upsall, comments that “Marie will be missed dearly. Having known her for well over 20 years I will miss the joy and humour she always brought to very occasion.”

Marie ran White Lion Press http://www.whitelionpress.com/ ,which published the works of her husband Ken Burnett including the classics “Relationship Fundraising” and Friends for Life” as well as George Smith’s “Asking Properly” and more recently Roger Craver’s “Retention Fundraising” and “Donor’s for Life” by Craig Linton and Paul Stein.

Marie was also key to the success of the popular website SOFII http://sofii.org/ “the showcase of fundraising innovation and inspiration” and its spin-off event and roadshow  “I Wish I’d Have Thought Of  That” (ITWOT) http://sofii.org/iwitot/i-wish-id-thought-of-that which Daryl Upsall states, “I twice had the honour to be in invited to share my 5 minutes of fame under the fundraising spotlight at ITWOT to present others innovation in fundraising that has inspired me.”

Here is the opinion of a happy user of  DUCI’s Career Development Service:

“Working on my CV and LinkedIn profile with Zoe (Oldham) was a great experience. What was refreshing was that she first investigated my personality, my motivation and my career history in that order. From there, she worked within the framework of what I was looking for to best shape my CV, always staying true to the authentic way in which I wanted to present myself. Where I had initially anticipated a one-way critique of my profile, it instead became a highly iterative process, where Zoe and I liaised and tweaked until we were both happy with my CV. Her knowledge of the industry was second to none. Zoe was personable and great to chat with. I would recommend Zoe’s services to anyone.”
