We help our clients focus on clarity of purpose and core principles, and to align their strategy, people and processes to deliver impact. 


​We enable boards to govern effectively and make better collective decisions. We provide direct advice and facilitation in board transitions, development and effectiveness, as well as board reviews, Away Days and recruitment, often across multiple geographies. 

We offer a short "How to Add Real Value" course for Trustees.


We partner with senior leadership teams and boards to help them work synergistically to define, achieve and expand their social impact goals. Our approach seeks to embed a mission- and metrics- driven "DNA" that transforms organisational effectiveness.


We elicit best practice Theories of Change, rooted in a deep understanding of context and organisation. Our expertise encompasses leadership coaching, governance, strategy, implementation, and evidence-based measurement and learning. 

founders and families

We work with founders, philanthropists and their families and teams on their journey to achieve high social impact returns on their hard earned money. We help them to define the principles, values and approach which will guide their investment strategies, navigating them from initial idea to implementation of their social investment decisions. 


We also support organisations to evolve successfully beyond founder stage. We bring in coaching and mediation skills when needed.

Our approach to all of our work is based on our guiding principles. We have worked across many sectors and in impact organisations of different sizes at various stages of development.


We have a network of highly skilled associates based around the world and construct teams focused on meeting client needs.

"Bateleur Partners was central to guiding and implementing a new strategy and operating plan for KHULA. Kate and Stephen brought with them an intellectually driven yet practical framework, a clear understanding of the environment in which we operate and real directional advice.


In a short time, all the stakeholders involved agreed a new and ambitious vision along with the path to implementation. Bateleur Partners then stayed with us, recruiting our new CEO from their own superb network, and advising on a revised management structure for the organisation.


Positive change is already visible after only one year, and the successes in the field and in fundraising are profound."
