What our clients say

Grants and Funding Agreements workshop

Provided a much broader grounding of the topic than I expected. This will give me a far better understanding of how to establish a grants program.

Fantastic workshop. Jamie's style is very easy to listen to and his knowledge of the topic was exceptional. I learnt a lot.

I am presently revising grant procedures and guidelines in the department I work in. Learning from this workshop will provide a solid understanding of what processes should be put in place.
