FROM OUR CLIENTS

“I can highly recommend Gretchen and her team for their skills, experience and successes for grant writing. I had the opportunity to attend a grant workshop facilitated by Gretchen and the attention to detail, amount of resources, tips and tricks that she shared has enabled me to secure a number of grants for groups I am personally involved in. Gretchen has lent her skills as a grant mentor to multiple members of the Upstairs Regional Incubator and is a valued part of this team. She is generous and awesome with her time and skills.”

“The course was really well put together and explained the basics plus plenty of tips and tricks. Since then I have successfully secured grant funding of just over $500,000 for the projects our community is passionate about. I would strongly recommend this course.”

Grant Funding Application – Destination Wollongong

We [Destination Wollongong] engaged Gretchen to support in the development of our funding application for Destination NSW’s Regional Visitor Economy Program (RVEP). Gretchen proved to be an invaluable asset to our team throughout this process, from advising us of best practice and next steps through to revising and strengthening our written responses so they were submission-ready. She brought a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the process that enabled us to submit a competitive application. Her communication with our team and professionalism throughout this process was exceptional and we look forward to working with Gretchen on future applications.

“BusinessSense completed our AusIndustry Export Marketing Development Grant. Gretchen was fantastic. She prepared the grant and all the necessary supporting documentation for the company. I highly recommend BusinessSense for any of your grants or business projects.”
