‘I worked with Thanh at Culture Coventry within the Marketing & Communications Department. Thanh was the Audience Development Manager responsible for project managing the organisations approach to developing our audiences in-line with our business plan and ensuring this was done at both a grass roots and strategic level. Thanh was also responsible for organising the collection of our audience data and producing a yearly report on the results, along with actionable recommendations. Thanh always approached new projects with a detailed plan and pulled together the relevant project teams in order to deliver the work effectively and with buy in from across the organisation. I personally learnt a lot about Audience Development from Thanh, something which has now enabled me to partake in a new and innovative audience development programme across 6 countries.

Thanh developed the formation of new strategies and action plans to engage with existing and new audiences, most recently through a range of very successful decolonisation events linked with a national exhibition we had on display.

I would recommend Thanh, not only as a highly knowledgeable and hard-working practitioner, but also as someone who brings a positive outlook to each project.’

‘I worked first with Thanh as a Fellow on the Future Proof Museums programme and was immediately impressed by her passion for the sector and acute insights for how organisations can stay relevant in our ever-evolving landscape. I commissioned Thanh to gather case studies and work with participants of our Arts Council funded programme and was super impressed by her ability to fully grasp the brief, and gather the correct information to expand our reach and build our impact. Thanh has also spoken engagingly for us at the AMA Conference to arts and cultural leaders and received top feedback from delegates.  I enjoy collaborating with her on how to make events and training sessions really relevant and exciting, and wholeheartedly recommend Thanh as a thoughtful and experienced cultural professional. ‘
