I’m Rick Magill. I offer practical advice and support to ambitious teams working to improve our planet and the lives of others:

  • Charities
  • Non-Government Organisations
  • Social enterprises and B Corporations
  • Government donors and private philanthropists for international development
  • Businesses with a triple bottom line (financial, social and environmental)

My unusual blend of skills and experience could help your organisation to make an even bigger impact.

I work as a consultant or interim manager and offer five main services:


  • Organisational improvements (to get bigger and even better at what you do)
  • Business development (to sell your benefits and earn more income)
  • Project design & management (to deliver better results, faster, and with more certainty)
  • Assurance (to minimise risks, and maximise impact and value for money)
  • Sustainable wealth creation (to build or expand planet-friendly businesses and social enterprises)


See a few examples of my work with not-for-profit organisations to:

  • Create well-paid jobs across Nepal
  • Scale-up UK education and skills charities
  • Develop the water strategy for Barbados
  • Distribute affordable medicines in Zambia
  • Improve the impact and value for money of foreign aid projects around the world



Start the conversation with just two clicks. I would love to hear about your team’s ambitions and explore ideas about how we might work together.


UK Aid Match encourages the public to have a say in how foreign aid is spent. The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office matches donations to charity appeals. Around £150m has been invested in over 130 projects to reduce poverty in 36 countries.


MannionDaniels manages the fund. I was part of the bid team that secured the contract. I recommended funding for proposals that seemed most likely to succeed and led the team that oversaw delivery. We checked that charities were ready to launch, monitored their progress, and suggested ways to improve results. Learning on what works (and does not work) is shared to influence donor policies and industry practices.
