This is a different training moment since I deal with an essential element that although is not directly linked with the development of successful grant applications, it is of paramount importance for mastering this. More specifically, for either evolving into great funding experts or for continuing being so, we need to read and process a lot of information. Such information is not necessarily only related to call topic’s documentation but it includes also books that build further our skills as experts. Such books can be about persuading, influencing, investigating and searching, fund raising, marketing and promotion, project planning, project management, pitching, business planning, Ethics, IPR (Intellectual Property Rights), gender issues, negotiations, public speaking, presenting and the list goes on and on.
You do understand now that we should keep on reading and processing knowledge hidden in books in order to master specific skills that are essential for our personal and professional development as funding experts.
In this training moment, I am going to reveal to you a very powerful technique in order to read and process at least one book every week without suppressing any of our personal or professional time. On the contrary, you will discover how to process the information in a book three or four times more effectively that you have ever done in your life!
Are you ready? Enjoy it! This short video will probably change the way you think, act and live!
For adding further value to what you have learned from this article/video, you can now register in my Funding Expert Accelerator Programme that in addition to have exclusive access every month to unique in-depth trainings on EU funds that I deliver nowhere else but only in this programme, you can also have an one-to-one live session with me remotely where I can guide you specifically on any challenges you are facing (e.g. your strong and weak points and how to work for becoming a great funding expert, which funding programmes can support your idea or your organisation’s mission, how to get involved in proposals as partner, how to deal with specific issues in regards to a grant application or a funded project that you are involved, etc.) You set the agenda for our discussion and coaching session according to your own needs.
Finally, I provide below 5 key-messages I kept from this video that everyone should remember that wishes to be a great funding expert with value.
