We train founders and their senior management teams to develop robust strategy, strengthen organisations and track their impact.
We produce high-quality insights and share ideas from successful enterprises, charities, founders and business owners in our network and beyond.
Ten Thousand Starlings offers tailored programmes for founders and business owners of impact-conscious organisations. We teach good process to increase turnover, create value and scale impact.
Founded in 2015 by Kathryn Maunders and John Walker, our initial offering was done-for-you strategy and business strengthening services. Along the way, we have learnt that to generate lasting results founders and their teams need the skills and confidence to build their own solutions. We have developed a suite of support programmes that train you to develop great strategy, track your impact and strengthen your organisation.
We know that founders and business owners learn best through facilitated peer-learning. All our services and programmes connect you with like-minded entrepreneurs. We also support you to build your own Starlings Nest - a mastermind group that challenges and accelerates your business development.
