Duane Raymond

Duane Raymond is the founder of FairSay and the eCampaigning Forum event and community.  He has been a pioneer of digital campaigning in the UK and Europe since 2001 when he was Oxfam GB’s first e-campaigning manager and grew the online supporter base from 5,000 to 400,000 in 3 years. He has followed digital campaigning since the early 1990s, made his first web site in 1995, used the Internet since 1989 and used computers and networks since the 1980s.

Duane is widely recognised as one of Europe’s leading e-campaigning experts and pioneers. He pioneered Oxfam GB’s e-campaigning activity from 2001-2004 and has been running FairSay – a campaigning consultancy – ever since. He has been called the ‘leading e-campaigning guru’ by Linda Butcher, CEO of the Sheila McKechnie Foundation and the ‘godfather of good geekery’ by Tom Allen of ActionAid International. He has works with many of the world’s leading campaigning organisations and campaigns, including Greenpeace, Oxfam, Amnesty, WWF, Make Poverty History, 1Goal Campaign and many more.

When not organising and delivering trainings, he is analysing campaign performance, helping craft campaigning strategies, working hands-on as part of a campaigns team, organising the annual eCampaigning Forum events (since 2002) and being the benevolent dictator of the 1,900+ campaigner strong eCampaigning Forum global community.

Natasha Adams

I specialise in understanding ecologies of movements, research, strategy, activism, organising, training and strategic movement building. I love nothing more than geeking out on asking deep questions about how transformational change happens, from theory to practice.

Before my consultancy I built up close to a decade of experience coordinating NGO campaigns for social and environmental justice, to add to my many more years experience as a grassroots activist. Consultancy clients include Friends of the Earth, 350.org, Mencap, Church Action on Poverty, Save the Children, The Quakers, Greenpeace, CAFOD and The Sheila McKechnie Foundation.

My experience spans every step of the campaign process, from strategy development and research to delivery and evaluation. While I have well honed skills in direct lobbying and digital campaigning, I specialised in activism, strategic movement building and organising approaches, as history shows that deeper mass engagement is essential to driving change.

I am also a very experienced trainer and facilitator, and am available to facilitate meetings, workshops, and to develop bespoke trainings.
