Participant testimonials from a recent City of Melbourne Grant Writing and Project Management Workshop  (May 2016)

Thank you for sharing your experiences and knowledge.

Thank you for your insightful workshop.

Very good and informative training that might be of great benefit to any organisation.

It was really good and fantastic training and it has strengthened me and improved the way I will apply and write a grant. A big thanks to you Debby. All in all, it was a win-win situation.

Debby is an excellent communicator and presented a lively workshop that engaged and informed me very much.  This workshop has increased my confidence to be able to apply for grants. Grant applications are an unknown entity and fearful for me, so this workshop with Debby was very valuable and impactful for me at this important time as an emerging artist. I learned information about how to attack the budget and overall I’ve gained the knowledge, insight and skills to develop, complete and submit a strong and more competitive project proposal and grant application. 

I found the training to be really engaging and inspiring for me to continue on a path of freelance project managing. Thanks Debby you’re an inspiration.

Very detailed and Debby gave great examples from her own practice.

Well facilitated. Debby was a very engaging presenter. She wants to see more people out there doing it. It was fantastic that the City of Melbourne offers this kind of workshop for free.

Debby was very helpful in all aspects.

A fantastic course. Engaging and highly useful.

The session was very practical and Debby was an engaging and knowledgeable presenter. She inspired me to think about possibilities with partnerships in funding. 

I liked the anecdotal notes that Debby provided with the overheads, referring to real examples and sharing her expertise.

I believe I will now connect to the other organisations that I have been referred to.

The training was very engaging. I enjoyed having a diverse group of participants.
