John Cammack

John works as an independent consultant, trainer and writer in NGO management and financial management. He was head of international finance at Oxfam GB and senior lecturer in accounting and financial management at Oxford Brookes University.

John has wide experience of working internationally with development and relief agencies. He sets financial management in the context of organisational management and international development, making it accessible and non-threatening, especially to those who find numbers difficult.

He works with organisations to design training to suit individual needs for NGOs, their southern partners, staff and trustees. All courses are participatory and provide practical tools. They are supported by clear learning materials. His consultancy work includes reviewing and building NGO programme management and financial management capacity, and coaching individuals in financial management.

John is a professionally qualified accountant, manager and teacher and has an MSc in international development management from the Open University and an MBA from Brunel University. He is a member of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy, and the Chartered Institute of Management.
