Feedback

The workshop was excellent i specifically enjoyed learning about all the specific steps needed to write the proposal and how they are evaluated.

The way Catherine explains things makes the whole workshop attractive and interesting. I found the one page proposal really helpful.

I enjoyed the walk through of the application forms. Important tips about content and how it is evaluated.
