Testimonials

"The training and perspective I learned at the New Lens grant writing workshop greatly improved my skills at putting together winning proposals.  I was on a team that rewrote, submitted and won a $720,000 grant for a 4 year program serving farmers with disabilities.  I also submitted a proposal for a development grant in farm safety, which was also awarded.  One of my supervisors said that the development grant proposal was "flawless".  I credit you with teaching me that.  Start  with the budget and evaluation criteria, use their own language in the responses, go over and over the RFP and don't miss a detail.”            University of Vermont, Burlington, Vermont“

“It was easy to ask questions and there were great answers. Casey encouraged everyone’s participation. I liked how she presented oral evaluations at the end. I definitely feel her suggestions will be implemented.”   San Antonio, Texas


"I highly recommend Casey's webinars, having attended the e-membership one recently. This isn't one of those boring webinars where you sit and stare at the screen while someone drones on and on, reading straight from the presentation. (We've all been through those.) Instead, this webinar is chock-full of useful information. Casey presents everything in a clear, logical manner, giving plenty of examples and opportunities for interaction. At the end of the webinar, she sent us links to worksheets that will be very helpful as our coalition begins discussions about moving toward e-membership options. The information was timely and well-thought, with plenty of research and examples to support what was shared. Casey's a great instructor and facilitator!"    Communications Coordinator, Houston, Texas


“All workshops are made or broken by the presenter. Casey was wonderful.”    Austin, Texas


“It is useful to see how the reviewer is approaching my proposal and what I can put in to catch their attention and keep it by following the guidelines I learned here. The presentation was very informative and interesting. Casey paid attention to her audience. Nice job!”,   White River Junction,Vermont
