Testimonials

"The proposal review bootcamp was an extremely beneficial experience. The on-line course content was spot- on, all the essential information and nothing more. The workshop component was tailored to our needs and provided clear, simple, implementable steps for improving our processes. Would highly recommend."

"The Sativus Grant Writing Workshop was comprehensive, but concise, with plenty of opportunities to discuss content with the facilitators and other participants. The slides were clear and well-paced, with additional information provided by Kylie and Bridie in their presentations. This workshop has provided an excellent resource and way of thinking that will contribute to improved grant applications in the future."

“I took part in the RECESS trial period and will be keen to continue with a membership. Kylie managed to provide a program that is a perfect fit for new scientists but also supportive of ongoing education for those who have been in this field for a longer time. I'm excited to see what else will be included in the future.”

"Great workshop. It would be good to know if Sativus can offer review of grant applications before submission. Thank you for your workshop"
Workshop participant
"The mini Bootcamp provided a good grounding for establishing definitions and the key components for drafting a proposal likely to succeed, with further detail addressed by the intensive workshop. The collaborative, face-to-face session then allowed a deep-dive into the effective assessment of scientific proposals, emphasised the need for clear and accurate scoping from the outset (to manage the expectations of both research providers and funding stakeholders), and the many considerations that are needed during the process to ensure a successful outcome (ie ethics considerations, IP, alignment with an organisation's strategic goals, etc.)."
Bootcamp participant
“Sativus became a cornerstone for us while putting together and defending a research bid. They were fundamental in helping us present state-of-the-art science to a non-research audience. The project was revitalised with the critical thinking and great advice from Sativus that took our communication to the next level. On a more personal level, I was very impressed with the enthusiasm and the engagement that felt like Sativus was a full member of the team. One of us. Thanks Sativus for helping us cross the line with a great research achievement”
