36. Mark Williams – Fundraising for a small charity; four things to prioritise

Read more
In this episode we’re looking at ways to overcome some key challenges if you’re responsible for fundraising in a small charity.
I first met Mark, who is Head of Communications and Fundraising at the social welfare charity, Wimbledon Guild, when he joined our training and inspiration site, the Bright Spot Members Club ( about six months ago. Since then I’ve enjoyed several fascinating conversations with him. In particular he’s given me lots of insight about tactics and strategies that help you boost fundraising in a small charity.
In this conversation Mark outlines the areas which he has found deserve particular attention if you are responsible for fundraising. The conversation includes tips to help you maximise limited resources; ideas for successful PR and communications; and tips for harnessing the ideas and enthusiasm of the whole organisation.
If you want to share this episode with your colleagues or on social media, because you think it will help other charities in this especially challenging year, thank you very much for your help spreading the word. We are both on Linked In and on twitter I am @woods_rob.

Si Nainby's Deep Dive with Mark Williams

Read more

Si Nainby delivers a two-part podcast with Mark Williams. He is interim Lead Strength & Conditioning Coach for Basketball England, a Lecturer in Sports Science and former Head of S&C for GB Basketball & Southend United FC.

1. The commute: Some quickfire takeaways
Mark's story from semi-pro rugby player to a professional S&C coach
Lessons from the Covid lockdown
The value in focussing on the basics of movement

2. The Deep Dive
The story behind Mark's PhD and why player autonomy became central to his thinking
The Paradox of S&C - How can the controlled environment of the gym carry over to the chaos of sport?
Completing the circle - Marks' evolution of thinking, from questioning the importance of S&C to the role he now sees it playing in developing players

A note from Si:
At the end, we talk about degeneracy and I had redundancy on my brain, as I'd been reading about it that day, and gave the wrong definition. This is what I should have said: Degeneracy is the ability of elements that are structurally different to perform the same function or yield the same output.

S3E125 - The Damned "The Black Album" - with Mark Williams (The Jacobites)

Read more
This week’s guest Mark Williams (The Jacobites) calls in from the UK to discuss Britain’s punk/goth titans The Damned and their fourth release, “The Black Album”.
 Dark, tuneful and oh-so-eclectic, this 1980 double record had a huge impact on SO many post-punk and goth bands that followed, and although they are often considered also-rans in the Punk Rock triumvirate of The Ramones/The Sex Pistols/The Clash, we all agreed The Damned have more-than-earned a seat at the grownups table.

BWAC S2E8 - Mark Williams - On Equity, Experience and Discovery in the Orchestra World

Read more

This episode featuring Mark Williams, Chief Artistic Officer of the Cleveland Orchestra, is the continuation of our series focusing on black and brown leaders in the performing arts space. 

This episode was recorded months ago- long before quarantine - long before our latest encounters with nationwide protests rejecting police brutalism and racism. But Mark Williams, as a man, as a cultural leader holds much meaning in our world. In a time where it’s not uncommon to read about, even in 2020, a black person becoming “the first of something”, Mark’s historical mark, pun intended on the world is one of significance as the first black man to manage artistic operations with a major symphony orchestra- a distinction he unequivocally deems a sad one. 

In spite of the context of his place in history, Mark stands out as an exquisite voice in the orchestral world, casting out a compelling vision about how orchestras can widen opportunity lanes for black and brown leaders, and how he feels conservatories fail its students in the lack of curricular rigor around the history and repertoire of the black composers. I appreciated his candor with how these conditions have impacted his own work at the Cleveland Orchestra.

Mark, at the tail end of his talk, shares why in spite of being a black man in a largely white space he will not turn his back on the art form he loves and why he is devoted to providing windows and mirrors to black and brown emerging leaders in this space through mentoring. 

I hope you can hear in his vision and his earnest expression why Mark Williams is at once a guardian of the symphonic art form art as well as a visionary prodding it into new realms of adventure and exploration.
