Frankly Consulting Services

How we can help you

Frankly Consulting Services offers a range of resources for individuals and institutions involved in not-for-profit activities in education, community service delivery and various forms of ministry and care. These services include:

  • professional supervision;
  • reviews and support (personal development, change management, strategic planning and directions) in educational contexts and church ministry, both for individuals and for the communities or institutions they lead;
  • educational governance: assistance with accreditation processes for higher education providers and non-profit agencies;
  • teaching, preaching and study programs for Christian groups;
  • research supervision;
  • assistance with report writing and other editorial work.


What you can expect

Clients can expect a consultant who will focus on listening to their needs, understanding their strengths and limitations, and will then offer insightful and constructive advice.  The goal is not to provide ‘answers’ but to help clients to develop the skills and the means to make their own way towards their own goals and objectives within their unique situations.
