The CASE Europe Iain More Award recognises outstanding achievements of an emerging development professional. The award is in recognition of Iain More, one of Europe's leading fundraisers.
Iain More has been a development practitioner and consultant for over 25 years, following a varied career in industry, higher education and politics in the US and Europe. He held a number of Director of Development positions both in the UK and in continental Europe until his founding of Iain More Consultants (now More Partnership) in 1989. In his long and rewarding career Iain has worked with a wide range of educational institutions, charities and other not-for-profit organisations providing advice on all aspects of development work. In the early days of development in the UK, Iain was a beacon of knowledge and played a pioneering role in introducing development concepts already tried and tested in the US, such as telephone fundraising, initially a novelty in Europe. Many techniques have since become common practice. Iain has been a counsellor and a mentor for many young professionals over the years, delivering experienced advice together with passion, dedication and a quest to promote excellence in the profession. His open-mindedness and ability to capture the essence of every idea, programme or activity has gained him the distinctive reputation of a trusted and inspiring fundraiser.
The winner will have the choice of a £500 cash prize or a £500 scholarship, which can be used at any CASE Europe conference or event.
