Hello! I'm Madlen

I’m a Management Consultant, who collaborates with not-for-profit, and for-purpose businesses

I'll help you grow your impact and fund your mission through bespoke strategies and solutions

I help impact-driven organisations, like yours, elevate their strategies, align their operations to their mission, and launch their next stage of growth

Bringing my broad scope of practice, and knack for asking the right questions, I work with you to get a solid understanding of your mission, and the problems that you need to solve. Taking a strengths-based approach, I work alongside your team to design strategies and processes which will elevate your day-to-day operations, enhance your fundraising capacity, and help you reach your social impact goals. 

I've worked with values-driven leaders and teams to increase their impact, and revenue, for over 5 years

I work with you to ensure you can compellingly communicate your purpose and impact, and raise the funds you need to drive change in the world (and a whole lot in between)

7 things you didn't
know about me


My time as a chef took me on work adventures to Michelin Star restaurants abroad


I’ve been deeply curious about supporting psychological safety in teams since before I’d even heard the term


Life-long learning and new projects keep me energised (I do also appreciate a good nap)


I’m a mother to a very clever and cute little person


My sport of choice is powerlifting (handy when I need to carry the aforementioned little person)


I’m passionate about mentoring young women, supporting them to recognise their worth and power outside of dominant social narratives.


I love looking at well-designed and beautiful things, and my hope is that this reflected in my services

How I help you achieve your mission

My strength is consolidating complex ideas and practices into simple to understand language, and actionable steps. My favourite part of a project is seeing the optimism, confidence (and often relief) that my clients feel when they implement our work, and see the improvements that we set out to achieve.

Hi, I'm Madlen Toumbourou

I’m a dynamic leader, strategist, storyteller, and systems-thinking enthusiast

While I’m all about big-picture thinking, I don’t compromise on process or the needs of your team. Time and again, I’ve been described as a strategist who can execute operationally. I’m also often described as “a gun” (but you can read more about that below). You know your business best – and I’m here to help build your capacity to attract funding, design and deliver projects, and enact change. 

With a background in Psychology, Senior Management roles in Business Development, and Operations Management, my breadth of experience includes supporting individuals on their mental health recovery journey, to building a thriving team culture, to driving Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives, to management of national tenders up to $50M value. And before this, I was an award-winning chef. 

I’m an optimistic partner, bringing diverse stakeholders together to tackle complex challenges, and use structure to enliven solution focussed thinking.

Let's do this
