I help arts organisations to take a more efficient, effective and creative approach to management.

I provide an international perspective, an external set of eyes and facilitation skills to help arts organisations ask difficult questions of themselves, shape new business models and long term strategic plans.

I have worked with more than 30 arts organisations over the last 15 years, managing programmes, providing consultancy and research services. Over the last number of years in my role as Lecturer in Arts Management at Goldsmiths, University of London, I have secured major funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the European Union to develop research that focuses on artificial intelligence, digital leadership, and cultural value in the UK and USA. From delivering leadership workshops and program evaluation for the British Council in Turkey and Uzbekistan, to developing a Crowdfunding mentoring programme for Arts and Business NI, or supporting The Science Museum to develop their use of Artificial Intelligence technologies, my work seeks to drive change, reach and impact.

Oonagh chaired our Culture Geek conference with great confidence and style. She blended expert knowledge on the digital side of culture with being incredibly personable, connecting with both the speakers and the audience. Oonagh was brilliant to work with, well prepared and an accomplished host.
