Drawing on over 35 years’ experience of  high profile leadership roles in the voluntary sector and the NHS – including nearly a decade as Chief Executive of The Prostate Cancer Charity (now Prostate Cancer UK) – John Neate is now working as an independent consultant, offering a range of services to organisations and to individuals – particularly in the international development and Christian mission sectors.

His experience includes:

  • leading, managing and motivating complex, service-providing, health organisations with budgetary responsibility up to £100 million and staff management responsibility up to 1,000 employees
  • Business coaching and mentoring
  • Strategic analysis and formulation
  • Extensive work with print and broadcast media
  • Organisational analysis and culture building
  • External representation and campaigning with national governments, building networks of influence and achieving positive change
  • 15 years’ experience of operating at Board level with strong understanding of governance issues

“Big C Cancer Charity engaged John Neate to facilitate future thinking on how, as a charity, we invest wisely in future cancer research, particularly in the area of prevention. John has influenced the charity’s strategic direction and business planning. From our experience, we can positively recommend John to other organisations who wish to explore a number of charity or business options that may be available to them.”

Carolyn Sexton, Chairman, and Chris Bushby, CEO, Big C Cancer Charity

“John is an exceptionally valued critical friend. His insight and perceptive questioning have proved invaluable as I have developed my own role and developed strategic plans for the team. I can wholeheartedly recommend John to anyone who is looking for a trusted and safe companion through transition and change.”
