Writing Successful Bids

London: 27 September 2019

London: 15 November 2019

When you write a funding application, how often are you successful? Your time is precious and good funding opportunities few, so make sure every application is as strong as possible.

London training hosted by NCVO at their Conference Suite, London, N1.

I must admit that the topic ‘bid writing’, while wholly relevant to fundraising, did not fill me with inspiration. However, your presentation, style, effort and experience was captivating. You clearly speak from a vast amount of experience and made the topic come to life through the practical task. I left bubbling with ideas and an renewed drive to get cracking on some things I’d let slide onto the back burner.
