Liz Gadd

Liz specialises in strategy, impact, effective philanthropy and change readiness. She has a special interest in supporting environmental organisations and bridging the divide between social and environmental charities.

Liz supports charities and funders to develop their strategy, including understanding the external environment in which they work, clarifying their intended impact and exploring how they will implement their strategy. She has a particular interest in developing strategic processes that enable a flexible and responsive approach to strategy implementation that take account of the ever-changing external environment. She encourages all charities and funders to consider the impact of the environmental crises on their mission and the people supported or affected by their work. Liz leads NPC’s growing environmental work, encouraging debate on what the environmental crises mean for the people we work with and for, to ensure that the least privileged are not hit hardest by our changing environment and related policy. She is passionate about finding win-win opportunities for both people and the planet.

She has over 20 years’ experience in the charity sector including with the British Red Cross, Girlguiding UK, VSO and the Challenge Network. Her recent clients include The Conservation CollectiveOn The Edge ConservationClient Earth, and the J Leon Philanthropic Council.

In a personal capacity, Liz is a trustee of the Environmental Funders Network, as well as the charity Pesticide Action Network UK.
