"The grant writing training that Dr. Peterson provided for our audience of nonprofit personnel was well prepared, thorough, and extremely engaging. Dr. Peterson brings two important perspectives to his grant writing training: the perspective of the successful grant writer and of the grant proposal reviewer. His experience reviewing grant proposals gives him insight into how funders choose between proposals and this expertise is incredibly valuable to people who are new to grant writing. He uses relatable examples from his own experiences working in nonprofits, to illustrate the points in his presentation. Every proposal is different, so there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to grant writing, but in his training, Dr. Peterson provided solid actionable advice and tips for how to craft a successful grant proposal. I personally benefitted from the training and we received very positive feedback from all attendees."
