Securing funding for your project or organisation is never simple, and with cutbacks and austerity in the air things are not getting easier. Thankfully, we’ve been able to arrange an exclusive full-day workshop with Laura H. Drane, decorated veteran of the bid-writing process. Laura has won bids from £500 to £500,000 in her years of experience, supporting organisations including Manchester Science Festival, Jodrell Bank and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. The techniques and lessons from her successful methodology will be taught through a number of applied exercises and activities, as delivered to the RSA, the Clore Leadership Programme, and British Science.
This is the first time this course will be offered to the general public – usually being delivered to corporate clients – by Laura. However, we’re not just giving you the opportunity to learn from Laura first-hand; you’ll be able to directly address the challenges in the real-world bids you’re actively writing, if you’re currently putting one together (we’ll ask you for the application paperwork in advance). This provides access to expert support for your bid-writing, which would exceed the cost of the course alone; we’re offering it as an optional component of a broader programme, showing real-world best practices and sharing hard-earned tips and techniques.
UPDATE: This course is now available on the 13th May 2013. Please see this link for the syllabus and sign-up information.
