About us

We are the creative management consultancy behind the Lasting Difference and Lasting Leadership suite of resources. We make them freely available on this site because we believe in non-profit organisations and their place at the heart of a healthy society. Our mission is to contribute to strong, sustainable, well-run non-profit organisations led by confident, informed, capable leaders.

We’ve been operating since 2006, registering in 2013 as a limited company going by the name Wren and Greyhound Limited. That’s still our registered name, but in 2021 we began formally trading as The Lasting Difference consultancy. Read our latest strategy here.

We help organisations to:

Create it: Facilitation and 1:1 support

  • Conversations that count: calm, engaging leadership of creative programmes, meetings and events.

Measure it: Impact measurement

  • Blissfully jargon-free support with outcomes and self-evaluation. (We no longer carry out external evaluations).

Plan it: Strategy and planning

  • Creative thinking for managers, teams and boards, from planning through to implementation.

Sustain it: Expert consultancy

  • We wrote the book on nonprofit sustainability (no, we really did).  Sustainable leadership? We’ve got that covered too.

Since 2006 we have helped many hundreds of organisations of all shapes and sizes. Our client list includes national and local charities, funders, service providers, policy and campaign groups, membership bodies and social enterprises. In an average year we work with 40 main clients and support around a 1000 more through workshops, training sessions and conferences. To find out more about our work you can view our services here, or contact us.
