Project and organisation development and regional/place based cultural strategies and partnerships.

Facilitating thinking

Facilitating away days, consultation strategies and events, team and board development.

Adding capacity

Bringing short-term capacity to overstretched organisations; business planning, fundraising bids, evaluation.

I have an extensive background in the arts, culture, creative industries, social enterprise and charitable sectors, and also in business planning, managing and leading change. This has come from my employment, freelance consultancy and from voluntary roles.

I have acquired a wealth of contacts and networks of people and organisations who want to connect, collaborate and develop. If I can’t help directly I can signpost you to organisations, consultants or specialists who can.

Please contact me for my CV.

Pippa has a very extensive and strategic knowledge of the cultural sector networks and investment which has built up since when I first worked with her through my role in Museums, Libraries and Archives, when she was Head of Culture at the Government Office of the SW and Executive Director of Culture SW. She has been a leader in the development of place based cultural partnerships, and national strategic initiatives, including working with the Higher Education and Creative Industries sectors. She has researched and authored excellent national work on rural issues, working with Government departments, and brokering new partnerships and new ways of working for cultural organisations.

Over the years, Pippa Warin has forged a powerful reputation as an empathetic friend and colleague to both Arts Council England and the south west’s arts and cultural sector. Her understanding of public policy and the role arts and culture can play within it is unparalleled in my estimation. Pippa’s ability to utilise that depth of knowledge and breadth of perspective to achieve tangible results was one of the hallmarks of her time at Arts Council England, as the development of cultural partnerships in many different contexts has demonstrated.

Phil Gibby

Area Director Arts Council England


Pippa’s support and insight has been invaluable in helping with strategic planning, progressing grants and identifying key areas for development. As a creative not-for-profit social enterprise we have benefitted from her wide ranging networks and contacts helping to form partnerships and collaborations. We have appreciated her thoughtful, focussed approach.

A huge thanks for taking on the task of convening our session – what a great outcome! Talk about ‘steering’!!! You kept the session moving just at the right pace for everyone to contribute but allowing no-one to waffle.

I was bowled over by the response and realise that we must have achieved something for people to come on board and offer to take on a hands-on role.
