Creative Learning Strategy (2010 – 2011)
The Director of Creative Learning (Sean Gregory) asked us to work alongside him to develop a new creative learning strategy for the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Barbican Centre. KoKo Consulting then supported the Barbican Centre to fundraise over £4M from a variety of funders to deliver this strategy.

“Nikki Shepperd worked alongside me when I first took on the role of Director of Creative Learning for the Guildhall School and Barbican Centre. Collaborating with Nikki to develop our Creative Learning strategy was invaluable. Her clear strategic judgement, great management experience, and ability to quickly turn around all the necessary documentation make a real different to the qualify and depth of what we produced and the consequent direction we took as a new division working across a world class arts centre and internationally renowned conservatoire. It was also hugely valuable to then use Nikki’s excellent development skills to secure some quite sizeable funds to make the strategy a reality. She is someone who can both ‘think’ as well as ‘do’.”  Sean Gregory – Director of Creative Learning (Barbican Centre  and Guildhall School)
