A BIT ABOUT ME
I’ve always been passionate about developing and funding projects. In doing so, I have worked in areas that have truly stretched my own reality. International outputs in university research and development, education, social justice, health projects to social firm development and business innovation and heaps in between. I’ve brought in over 70 million of dollars in funding, developed and managed the projects, assessed grants and tenders on panels, and mentored people individually and in teams.
I've learned one important lesson in my writing journey and that is, writing has the potential to create, to help and to inspire. Done well, writing can advocate for those in need, bring innovation to market, change thinking and so much more.
I am still active in the grants and tender community through the forum, and also utilise my passion and skills to encourage and develop others - the entrepreneurs, the innovators, the change makers, and the community leaders.
It's been a journey. What started out as an initiative to help my local community has grown to an international audience.
Please enjoy the books, the Grant and Tender Writing Community Forum and, together, we can work to build thriving and sustainable communities, share our skills and develop the networks and shared practice within an International community.
