Welcome to Jane Bryant

I provide consultancy services in business planning, strategy and policy development, in fundraising, and in project co-ordination and management. I work in the cultural sector, aiming to work with clients from arts, creative and cultural organisations,  the education sector, funders, and local authorities. Much of my work focuses on increasing access, especially for children and young people. I am an experienced presenter, trainer and writer, enjoying the crafting of both written and spoken words to enhance knowledge, communication and advocacy.

Business Development

Yarner Woods, October 2019

With substantial experience, I work with partners to help identify what they want to achieve and facilitate them to map out their strategic plans, stepping stones and outcomes. Writing bids is one of my strengths, drawing from many years of successful fundraising from the public and private sector.

Project Management

Larvae of bees in the combs.

No job too small! I enjoy the challenge of co-ordinating and managing projects and programmes, placing co-creation at the heart, and embedding evaluation from inception.

Training and Presentation

With a strong record of both training and public presentation, including internationally, I’m always interested in opportunities to build and exchange knowledge and practice.

“Jane Bryant has shaped the Artswork we are today and the team, Trustees and the charity are left infinitely stronger and better for her leadership. I thank Jane on behalf of all the Board for her enormous contribution to Artswork.”
