About this Event
Writing a grant application can be a lengthy process, it is time consuming, demands a lot of effort and creativity; and for someone who may not have the relevant experience it can be daunting. Furthermore, any shortcomings in the production of the application can lead to what would have been a viable project being declined and not getting the funding it deserved.

This highly informative webinar will help:

Provide a systematic and structured approach to identify and apply for relevant grant funding needed for your business
Make your grant application stand out from the rest
Increase the chances of a successful funding application
By the end of the session, you will have a great action plan and tools to support you through the application process

Learning outcomes:

Appreciating the timescales involved, understanding the bureaucracy and formal process in a plain-speaking way
What can and cannot be funded!
Plan, plan and plan some more
Practical support, time saving tips and advice on what makes a good application great
How to make your application stand out, detailing specific aims and well-defined criteria for success
Explaining what key financial data is required, why and help on how to produce it
How to transform a great application into part of a real, living business plan
Presenter biography:

Maria is an accomplished Business Owner, Consultant, Trainer, Coach, Mentor and specialist Grant Adviser, having secured in excess of £2.1m in grants for her clients since 2017. In addition, she has worked as a Growth Accelerator Coach, Digital Business Adviser, and Scale Up Adviser. She is also currently a Lead Coach on a number of Peer 2 Peer programs within the UK.

Maria has felt the pain and frustration of compiling grants from both sides, as a business owner striving to access funding to support growth but also supporting businesses as an adviser to wade through the processes, picking up many tips, tools and endless advice along the way.

But most of all, Maria will deliver the session in a fun, practical and relaxed way, so grab a coffee, paper and pen and let’s win some funding!!

Please note that the event is part-funded by European Regional Development Funded (ERDF)
