Hello and welcome.

I'm here to help you raise more funds for your cause.


I love the accessible format of webinars, and set up a new company, Moceanic, to deliver courses and ‘Coaching+’ (coaching with extras!) world-wide. Moceanic can deliver the world’s best coaches and courses to you, wherever you are.


“Sean has a clarity of thought and depth of knowledge that is invaluable….but his real skill is that he keeps it simple and cuts through the fluff and fakery! This webinar is a great use of an hour of your time”

Sarah Frayne, Cancer Society New Zealand

I deliver consulting in New Zealand and Australia through Pareto Fundraising.


“It’s been a very thought provoking session. It’s challenged us, got us to open our minds to a few aspects, and as a result we are going away with some fresh ideas, ways we can tweak and get a bit of extra yield from the activities that we currently do.”

Carl Young, Fundraising Director Peter Macallam Cancer Foundation


I hold workshops world-wide, at conferences and for fundraising agencies as well as charities.


“I recommend you to come to Sean’s seminar because you get really practical tips for starting with a fundraising programme, but you also get some advice on how to professionalise your current programme.”

Lena, Relationship Manager, Amnesty International Netherlands

  • These days I work with boards, CEOs, CFOs (and North American equivalents like VPs) as much as I do with fundraisers. These people rarely have a fundraising background. Success of the organisation tends to depend on whether these non-fundraiser leaders, who have responsibility for fundraisers, respect......

  • I got this lovely email from World Animal Protection (WAP). It worked on me.  BUT generally, humour is risky in charity direct marketing. I think this is for a few reasons: Not everyone gets the joke! Making light of your serious cause needs to be considered carefully: brand......
