subject: Fund-raising for ICER
This message is a repeat of Trevor's memo to you dated 9 July. So far we
have not had many suggestions - a few more would be gratefully received.
The University has commissioned a fund-raising consultancy in order to
attract financial contributions towards the costs of ICER, the BIOMED
building, and the MED building. The consultancy believes that ICER is the
most immediately-promising prospect.
The consultant has requested that we provide him with a 'list of contacts':
influential individuals who are known to us, and who know us. These should
be people who can 'open doors' (to possible funding opportunities) for us.
I have met the man who will be acting on our behalf. He has a good record
and appears to know how to go about this sort of activity. As an example,
he raised �5M for the University of Sunderland, from scratch, in six months.
I shall be grateful if you will jot down names, position, contact details,
etc. of those people who are well connected and who think highly of us.
These people could be from business, government/civil service (not currently
'in office'), the great-and-the-good, and so
on �� Please put on your thinking caps for a few minutes. Who could
possibly open doors to a million-plus for us. Please let me have names this
