"Great webinar! Diane was extremely knowledgeable about Federal grants and presented the information with clear, easy to understand visuals."
"While I have submitted scores of private grant proposals over 10 years in the non-profit field and more local government proposals recently, federal opportunities still give me pause. I have only submitted one myself. This webinar has given me more confidence and tools to use in my next opportunity."
"Diane led a terrific custom webinar, "Grant Budgets that Tell a Story" for our Grant Professional of Lower Hudson members. The information presented was thorough and covered many different grant application budget formats and budget topics. Diane provided useful tips about how to design a budget that will lead to grant success. We especially liked Diane's references to actual organizations and how their budgets were constructed. Diane is a warm and engaging speaker and we would love to have her back again soon!"
"As someone who teaches part-time, I recognize a natural born instructor when I see one. Diane is such an amazing instructor--a gift that not many possess. She is very knowledgeable, welcomes questions ( seamlessly working them into her lessons) and prepares a flexible curriculum that allows her to switch to topics relevant to her audience/class. However, the best thing about Diane is her passion for her work and her very dynamic nature. Her energy and attitude are contagious and, she makes you think about grants differently. I have taken Basic and Intermediate courses with Diane and she has a consistent teaching style across courses, which I love. I hope to have another opportunity to work with Diane! I can't say enough good things about her. Thanks so much Diane for making me a better grant professional"
"This is the most engaging webinar I have participated in yet! I really enjoyed that the content was presented in a digestible manner."
"The presenter does an excellent job of merging those in the starting/beginning phases of forming a grant team with those further along. The most engaging webinar I've ever participated in."
How to Think Like a Reviewer
Diane Leonard conducted an amazing webinar for our GPA chapter titled "Think Like a Reviewer." The material was easy to follow, but introduced new strategies that beginners and veteran grant professionals could implement almost immediately. Diane structured the presentation so it was interactive and caused the audience to think. I look forward to her presenting to our chapter again in the future.
