My name is Dan Harris and I’m a passionate and authentic communicator who has set up organisations, created movements and won awards.
Now that I’m working freelance developing my own practice I have the freedom to offer organisations and projects my skills and experience in the following areas.
What I offer
Presenting your organisation at its best:
Increasing the potency of your work:
- Strategic consultancy
- Project and business plan writing and development
Bringing new resources into your organisation:
- Community fundraising campaign building (inc. crowdfunding)
- Grant application writing and development
- Network building
Identifying social and environmental problems and seeking meaningful lasting solutions is a common theme throughout my career history from leading organisations to tackle youth unemployment through to shaping initiatives to tackle health inequalities. I have set up two co-operatives with social aims, and delivered health initiatives that altogether have engaged over 30,000 people.
Building trusted relationships with a breadth of stakeholders is fundamental to my approach. I have workplace experience of local authority, national charity, social enterprise, commercial and voluntary sector organisations.

I also reached the final of the World Pooh Stick Championships in 2008.
Kettlegun: Animal, vegetable or mineral?
Realising as a teenager the vast potential of the internet and the importance of being identifiable in searches I created the word ‘kettlegun’ as something more unique than my name (Dan Harris).
After applying this word to areas of my work and internet identity for 20 years I finally decided to define the word based on how I’ve been using it throughout its life.
