About Flying Geese
We reveal hidden income streams and dramatically energise engagement for arts and non-profit organisations by creating exciting and robust marketing and development strategies, based on solid data and research.

How we work
Flying Geese is owned by Beckie Smith who will always be your main point of contact. Often, two (or more) heads are better than one, so sometimes Beckie works with associate consultants to guarantee the best possible advice and expertise possible.
For that reason that we refer to ourselves as ‘we’, because we like to give our associate consultants recognition for their contribution to our projects, but please rest assured, that every single element of the project is Beckie’s responsibility.

Why Choose Flying Geese
We are experts in working for regional NPOs, where budgets can be tight and audience development targets can be tough, but where an audience member’s journey and relationship with the venue and programme provides genuine excitement. We have a wealth of experience on a global and international level where finance and income are paramount, and commercialism is the name of the game.
We are brave enough to take an educated risk with a view of trying something new and making waves in the industry. We turn heads when our passion and clarity resonate across a room and we make people interested who previously were not.
We are very target driven and keep the goal of a project in the forefront of our mind. We are experienced enough not to be thrown off kilter when circumstances change. We enjoy getting to know your team, but do not shy away from getting my head down, diving deep into a task, only coming up for air when the task has been successfully completed and the deadline has been hit. It makes us smile when we know our work, is more thorough, more accurate, and more intricate than expected.
We are stable strategic thinkers who take a considered approach and combines natural logical thinking, our ability to understand the bigger picture, and our confidence to listen to, or ignore, gut reaction. We are also lateral thinkers, so some of our ideas are slightly less obvious, but come hand in hand with some of the best rewards out there.
We are open, honest, approachable and engaging. We are excellent people people and are the first to volunteer for the tea run. We will easily fall in love with your project, because your project is our project and we take shared responsibility for it.
