Mentoring and Coaching

I apply a holistic lens – using a 360-degree approach – looking at all aspects of your grant-seeking to determine how I can best support your goals. And where you can make the smartest investment.

“The coaching sessions have been great: your support has made such a different and given me confidence. You’ve enabled me to understand the grants landscape clearly, to go about the grant writing process efficiently, and to find grantors that are a stronger fit for my clients’ projects.”

– Lucy Oliver, Fundraising Information Assistant, AskRIGHT

Mentoring and Coaching

Grant-seeking is highly competitive. Equipping yourself with the tools for success through tailored mentoring and coaching is one of the best investments you can make. Working closely as a partnership, we’ll develop an action plan to address challenges, build your skills, confidence, knowledge and capability.

One on one support to:

  • Develop your understanding of what funders, need, want and expect and the steps and processes involved in applying for grants
  • Build your skills if you are new to grant-seeking
  • Identify your strengths as well as areas where you lack skills and/or confidence
  • Refresh and reboot your skills if you are experienced
  • Navigate internal challenges:
    • Are you struggling with unrealistic KPIs and timelines?
    • Is there a lack of understanding around grants and the grants process
      in your organisation?
    • Is there a tendency towards being funding-led or developing projects on the fly?
