about elms

elms consulting was founded in early 2009 and since then has worked with a number of fantastic clients across public, non profit and private sectors to drive progress- taking ideas from concept through project design and development to implementation.

Motivated by the big agenda items, elms consulting focusses on working in the sustainable development and health and well being arenas.

Founder and CEO, Maya Doolub comes from a background of rich experience in both the private and the public sector, having worked with a number of leading UK newspaper titles, consulting firms and the UK National Health Service.

Maya started elms with a "roll your sleeves up" approach to engaging with clients who wanted more than a strategic plan gathering dust!


elms works with clients to develop and refresh strategy, sharing a dynamic approach which focusses on the organisation's ability to deliver on inspirational, meaningful yet pragmatic goals.

Working with both non profit and for profit organisations, elms engages with clients on vision setting and the development of pathways to take strategy through to action. Strategic development with non profits forms the basis of robust planning to support fundraising efforts and elms has worked successfully with a number of charitable organisations to achieve their critical fundraising goals.

Our work supports organisational development and change, and we have worked with a number of organisations across public and private sectors through critical transitional periods.
