    Chris’ course was excellent. My background is new business recruiting for USAID proposals. I recently started a new position in the business development team – this course has given me all the tools for success in working on the full cycle of business development. Chris starts you off with tracking the RFA and teaching you the timeline of when you need to be going on your scoping trip to your 30 day calendar for when the solicitation is released to how to follow up once you’ve submitted your application. He shows you all the important websites and resource you need to know about in order to do research and prepare your team to be as competitive as possible. He goes through costing and compliance. This course is a must take for any new business development professional or any professional that wants to fine tune their knowledge on the business development process. Chris gives you all the tools you need and tells you exactly what you need to do in order to WIN! Send all your new business development hires to this training to get them up to speed!

    The course was very informative and the presentations well prepared. I would recommend for all professionals in grant making be it USAID or any other donors. Good work Chris.

  5. Rosemary Nyaga says:

    I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is searching for USAID funding.

  6. samuel says:

    The experience Chris has on USAID grant management made the course to be very informative. The detailed presentations and practical examples made it a reality in navigating USAID funding. Recommended for all professionals.

    Very practical and value adding course.

  8. Rosemary says:

    The course was great in demystifying USAID funding. I feel more equipped in finding information on various sites and actually submiting applications.

  9. San-Eou Lan says:

    My organization has a very specific niche, and I took this to help my organization learn how to win more funding. I had been working in business development for about a year and a half, but I still learned a lot of new things I had never been exposed to before. Chris was incredibly thorough and I can’t believe how much he covered in the three days. This is a course that will show you where and how to pursue the funding. Even after the course ended, when I had follow-up questions, Chris was very responsive and helpful.

  10. Katherine Almeida Ramos says:

    The experience in courses and trainings in DC and international organizations shows the highly professional and down-to-earth knowledge share in Development Essentials US. USAID processes were masterly explained and real cases examples let us know the reality and proved tracks to succeed in the processes of grants/contracts application process. Tips and advices from a real expert.

  11. Suzanne L says:

    Our small unit has applied for a number of USAID grants and won a few, but “Winning USAID Grants” gave me new information about how to undertake research that will enable us to be strategic about submitting unsolicited concept papers rather than merely tracking RFA’s. I have already brought the valuable information gained in this course back to my colleagues, and we had a meeting to set priorities in preparation for writing concept papers. Chris is very personable and answered our many questions with both good humor and expertise. I highly recommend this course to anyone who needs to learn more about obtaining USAID funding!

  12. Lobsang says:

    This course is excellent for beginners as well as for those who needed to refresh their skills on USAID grant. Thank you Chris for the excellent training.

  13. B. Vega says:

    This was by far one of the best training courses I have ever taken, and I used to be a trainer myself so I am very picky. He imparts information that you would have a very hard time obtaining elsewhere, and does so in a very engaging, enjoyable way. Two thumbs up!

  14. Herman Ngure says:

    The training will better equip me with skills on making USAID Grant proposals

  15. JB says:

    A good introduction to USAID proposal development with insights into “niche” markets and resources for determining funds available and priorities within the US and Host Countries.

  16. Lindsay says:

    This course offers a comprehensive overview of the USAID funding mechanisms and how best to approach winning USAID grants. Chris’ extensive experience in the field with USAID provides a donor perspective that is very helpful in preparing and positioning your organization for success. His tips will definitely help our organization move forward. Thanks Chris for a great course!

  17. Seyi Badmus says:

    The course was very informative and detailed with specifics on how to find grants, where to find them, and gaps to avoid in order to win a USAID award. I highly recommend the course for beginners like me who are new to this area because it is a great starting point and will definitely point you in the right direction. Thanks Chris!

  18. Fred says:

    The course was very detailed and informative. But it was probably too long and some of the stuff could best be directed to senior management. AGRA as an
    institution will need to strategically utilize this information in the structuring of the Resource Mobilization Department.
    Keep up the good work.

  19. Rufaro says:

    Very useful course that I needed especially on checking to see where the money can be found and the navigation into the various websites to identify priorities and other useful information. All the best

  20. Kavinguha says:

    Chris is an excellent trainer, I have learn’t a lot of insights into the process of winning USAID awards, He has a tremendous wealth of knowledge into the dynamics of winning awards, managing and implementing these awards. Thank you Chris and I hope that you will be able to come up with more trainings on other various ways of understanding the complexities of USAID.
    Sincerely
    Antonny Kavinguha
