The attractiveness of the museum as an environment for events, both internal for patrons and donors and external, as a venue for hire, is an acknowledged and lucrative resource for university and civic institutions.

The potential for a more intimate encounter with the collections, however, requires a different kind of expertise.

Having worked closely with the Executive Education programmes of the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, we have extensive experience of using object-handling in commercial contexts.

We are able to offer insight and advice to Development and Curatorial departments as to how best to exploit the fundraising potential of the close encounter with museum objects.
