FEEDBACK FROM PAST ATTENDEES AT LIVE WORKSHOPS

I must say I was really impressed with the course and the content. My knowledge and confidence has increased hugely. 

I got a lot from your course and a lot of pointers!

I can say after years of fundraising I learnt so much from your bid writing course.

It was a very informative day and for someone who has not written bids before I am definitely more confident to get involved with them.

I found the workshops very helpful. It is a whole new area for me but the information you imparted has given me a lot of confidence with the direction I need to take and for that I am very grateful.

I found the day very informative and it gave me confidence to take on this aspect of work that I had been apprehensive of.

I enjoyed the session and found it valuable.

So much relevant, practical information all passed on in a way which I was able to follow. All greatly enhanced by your sense of humour.

It was a useful course and your examples real or otherwise helped to make it practical. 

Many thanks. The morning just flew by - always a good sign!

I enjoyed the course and learnt a lot. I will begin putting this into practice. 

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you. You have a great delivery and you made us all feel included. Thank you so much for a really excellent and instructive morning.
I found the workshop very helpful. I just wanted to say thank you for the workshop yesterday. It was really interesting and covered some very helpful points I can put into practice.
I have now received your notes which are to the point, informative and valuable for anyone treading this career path. Many courses I have attended have been so formal and boring you end up missing useful information but your injection of humour made for a relaxing and enjoyable day which always makes learning so much easier.
I will certainly take your advice on board and hope for further success. Many thanks for the course. I found it really useful and enjoyable and there was a lot of things I’d never even considered.
I have been working in the community and voluntary sector for decades and seen and been stifled by the rare highs but many lows and challenges associated with 'funding'. Your insights and matter of fact portrayal of the funding sector was a real eyeopener and rather painfully made so much sense. The information you have sent me plus your presentation has had a massive impact.
Thank you so much for the course I attended. I really enjoyed it. It was such a useful morning yesterday and I look forward to putting all your guidance into practice. It was very interesting and inspiring.
It was very helpful and informative and I learnt a lot. I’ve been writing a few bids in my current role but this definitely helped me think about the important parts and what to leave out. Many thanks for your outstanding workshop. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for a very informative and enjoyable course yesterday. Because you also quoted figures that actually made sense this gave me the confidence and reassurance that I am aiming in the right direction and getting there.
Thank you very much for sending all your notes. I thoroughly enjoyed the training and expect it to be a big help in the future. Interesting session yesterday and lots of food for thought.
I have read several books regarding fundraising and each time I am left asking questions. Not this time. I really felt that you were actually giving us the tools to complete the task. It seemed that many of us who attended had a fairly good idea of “what to do” we just needed to know “how to do it”. You provided the facts in a straight forward (and very entertaining) way which was easy to understand and I personally felt I could both relate to and put straight into practice back in the office.
Many thanks for a very informative day. You gave us a great deal of food for thought. Thank you for a solid day of learning. Loved your straight to the point attitude.
Many thanks for the attachments and your very informative and helpful briefing. I would be more than happy to recommend your course to industry colleagues.
Can I thank you again for a very helpful session and for sending all the follow up emails. Thank you for delivering an excellent course. I thoroughly enjoyed the session.
I really enjoyed both workshops. Attending your workshop was a great learning experience. Would definitely recommend the workshop so if you’re looking for any endorsements for the website or anything then do let me know and I’d be happy to help.
Thank you very much for a very informative and useful course. Amazing course and delivery. Thank you. New to bid writing I found both courses most helpful and enjoyable.
