Why me? Why this subject?
I have read thousands of funding applications in my time so have vast experience in what works and what doesn’t. Why this subject? Organisations, small or big, at some point will need to apply for funding – it affects us all so it is vital you know how to make your application stand out and provide what the funder wants to see/read.
"I found this workshop really beneficial and valuable as Douglas shared his huge experience in being a funder. Really helped me understand how funders think and what they look for" - Mohammad Abushaaban.
