Strategic Planning, Business and Income Generation Plans

Alix’s experience of the heritage sector is excellent.

She did the HLF Activity Plan for us and this was an extraordinarily thorough document. We know, because HLF told us, that they completely took our bid to pieces looking for anything that didn’t stack up properly and could find nothing!

I am happy to recommend Alix Slater and would feel very confident in working with her again on other projects.

Mary Powell

Programme Manager, Historic Lincoln Projects

As a museum and heritage strategic planning consultant, I provide a range of services including market research, marketing audits, feasibility studies, options appraisals and business planning.

My combination of practical experience and academic background ensures that the work I do is robust. I prepare realistic business plans that are achievable based on a thorough understanding of how heritage sites, museums, arts and mixed-use sites operate.

Having worked with local authorities, Trusts and other organisations I have a depth of understanding of different financial models which I can adapt to the organisation’s context and approach to planning.

I am known for my detailed and pragmatic approach which has helped secure over £25 million of HLF grants during the last 5 years to realise the vision for Lincoln Castle,The Archbishop of York’s Palace at Southwell, Llanthony Secunda Priory, Darlington Civic Theatre and Folkestone’s new museum.

Projects often require visioning workshops, governance, retail, fundraising and catering reviews as part of the business planning process. I can provide a comprehensive service working with my associates to provide a full service including trustee training, fundraising strategies and grant writing.
