Hands-down the best

“Sam is hands-down the best grant writing trainer in Australia,”

Geoff Penton, CEO Southern Gulf Catchments (Mount Isa)

Many years of experience

“Sam shared her many years of experience with us and helped us to understand the process of grant writing in a
clear, simple and succinct way.  The main benefit came from doing some grant writing, receiving individual feedback and interacting with Sam and other participants. After completing the workshop, participants indicated that they now feel more confident in in their ability to write a successful application.”

Allison Edwards, Charleville Progress Association

...result in an influx of grants for the community...

“Sam’s grant writing courses are popular for a reason. They usually result in an influx of grants for the community in question and people feel confident to keep on keeping on with their grant writing journey,”

Suzie Christensen, Past CEO, Anglicare CQ

Unique ability to connect with communities at all levels

Absolutely the best

Commitment, professionalism, fun

“Commitment to the cause, professionalism, and fun to work with. Sam is a very experienced consultant, having supported conservation and land management NGOs with fundraising, engagement and communication for decades.

Sam is a valuable member of the Rainforest 4 Foundation team, helping to deliver outcomes for the Daintree Rainforest, First Nations people, and the world’s rainforests.”

Kelvin Davies, Rainforest 4 Foundation

An advanced facilitator

“Sam is an advanced facilitator, spending time getting to know the audience and content prior to the event, which had a significant impact on her ability to apply her skilled approach to knowledge exchange and idea brokering throughout the workshop. Sam was instrumental in guiding participants through sessions that enabled collaborated and co-developed strategies, ensuring that the group dynamics supported a targeted and fulfilling outcome for all involved.”
