What I do

William is a regular commentator and speaker both in the UK and abroad to government and national institutions on how to benefit from continuous digital change.


In 1999 William set-up Panlogic, a digital consultancy with a specialism in Digital Engineering, ‘the process of independently guiding and leading on strategic and digital business change’.

In 2012 he created the National Funding Scheme (registered charity 1149800). The National Funding Scheme (which operates under the brand name DONATE) exists to ease the process of giving through mobile technology at moments of emotional intensity and personal interest.

William has an MA in Chinese with Japanese and ran the family textile business before completing an MBA at Imperial College London and setting out on an entrepreneurial path. He is married with three children and counts cycling, skiing and his allotment amongst his hobbies.​

Bournemouth Borough Council Parks and Garden Foundation teamed up with DONATE to understand how digital giving in parks can raise new money for the much loved parks and gardens in the coastal city. Here, William Makower of DONATE sets out the insights of the project and these approaches from a DONATE perspective,
