2013 Sponsors

A word from our sponsors…

We are most grateful to all our sponsors for this year’s awards. Without them we would not be able to do justice to our mission of raising the profile of insight and analysis skills in the charity sector.

Wood for Trees  


Wood for Trees provides an intelligent and proactive approach to data understanding. We place the focus firmly on insights – and what you can do with them – rather than the tools we used to find them.

Our approach has been proved to work across a wide range of organisations, and it fits particularly well with the charity sector, where successful fundraising is hugely dependent on the effective management of immense quantities of supporter data. We’ve developed a clear Wood for Trees methodology: we employ a structured initial approach to scope the resources and requirements of an organisation, which usually builds into a programme tailored for the specific situation.

We have specialists who are highly experienced in every aspect of data understanding, from hygiene processes to complex analysis and modelling, but the acid test of our effectiveness is the action our clients are empowered to take as a result of our work. It’s only worth something if it means something, so we make a point of following up with clear recommendations for action and often work hand-in-hand with clients through the implementation stage.   Every project for every charity client is different, but a common thread runs through every job Wood for Trees has ever done: the application of creative, outside-the-box thinking to cold hard facts. We learned a long time ago that it’s easier to see round corners if we stand in unexpected places.




At Datatech our ethos that building informed and long-lasting relationships with clients and candidates is mutually beneficial is proven on a daily basis.

Our in-depth market knowledge and superior sourcing abilities enable us to maintain high levels of accuracy and exceptional service quality, as expected by our list of long-standing, prestigious clients. This is why many consider Datatech to be the leading supplier of professionals in the analytical marketplace.   Datatech, part of the progressive Evergreen Group, are recognised as an industry brand chosen by clients and candidates for our professionalism and commitment to delivery.  We offer a variety of bespoke recruitment solutions for analytical professionals.
