Specialist in developing and writing proposals for organizations seeking government and other funding.

If your organization is looking for a substantial cash injection, I can help.

My work is focused on securing financial backing from some of the world's largest donors including USAID, DFID and the European Union.

Service Description
I deal with proposals requesting multi million dollar funding, both in response to RFPs and unsolicited proposals.

My background in international development now spans six years, before which time I was a journalist and report writer since the early 90s.

I have worked for a number of NGOs as a lead and support proposal writer, and as a rapporteur and report writer for a range of United Nations agencies, USAID, DFID and the WHO.

Full details of my experience are outlined in my resume, and I would be delighted to hear from you in the event that you should need some help with future bids.
