“The session was excellent and as advertised.  My only comment was that it may have been a little fast for anyone completely new to the funding arena, however the handouts are well designed and contain plenty of information to pick up on afterwards.

I have attended similar workshops but this is the first to talk about some aspects of preparation needed i.e. funding strategy.  As someone who inherited a successful bid I can say my job would have been much easier if those writing the bid had provided that much detail!

 

I would be interested to learn of other courses run in this fashion and have already promoted this one to colleagues.”
