    I took this course last June and it was a great one and I am very glad I did it with Development Essentials. It was a solid two-day review going through USAID grants policies and procedures. The course was very interactive with quizzes and practical cases.
    Mr. Donald is an expert in this area and what I liked most about the training is the tips and do’s/ and don’t he provided us during the course.
    I definitely recommend this course.

  2. :

    I had the opportunity to participate in this course organized in July 2017 in Nairobi. This very detailed course has allowed me to significantly strengthen and deepen my knowledge and skills in Grant Management in accordance with USAID procedures and policies. Chris is an excellent facilitator and has extensive experience on issues related to USAID procedures and policies. I highly recommend this course to any Chief of Party, Deputy Chief of Party, Country Director, Senior Finance Manager and Grant Manager from any organization involved in the USAID grants administration.

    I had the opportunity to participate in this course organized in July 2017 in Nairobi. This very detailed course has allowed me to significantly strengthen and deepen my knowledge and skills in Grant Management in accordance with USAID procedures and policies. Chris is an excellent facilitator and has extensive experience on issues related to USAID procedures and policies. I would highly recommend this course to the COP, DPCOP, Country Directors, Senior Grant Managers and Senior Finance Officers involved in the USAID Grants administration.

  4. :

    This was a really informative course and worthwhile for people with varying levels of experience. Chris did a great job tailoring the course to be both useful for people who are new to USAID and seasoned compliance staff. I appreciate the resources he has put together for future use.

  5. :

    The course was very useful and well tailored to our needs as a university. In the past several years, our university has substantially increased our work in partnership with USAID and other federal funding agencies, and Chris’ course was extremely useful to our whole group in reviewing and discussing procedures and policies for USAID, DOS, MCC, DOL, etc. Chris’ approach was very well organized and he provides a handbook to each participant that serves as an excellent resource for us moving forward. We very much appreciate the knowledge that Chris shared with our whole Team and his ability to adapt his Development Essentials course to our specific needs as a university.

  6. :

    I attended the USAID Grants acquisition and the compliance management courses this past week. I highly recommend them to anyone in a Chief of Party position as they give you an in-depth knowledge of what your team is up against and how to support them. Chris also has a deep practical field experience to draw from.

  7. :

    I would like to thank you for well organized training on USAID Grants Policies and Procedures. The material was very interesting and the discussions were truly inspiring. I particularly enjoyed the presentation and diseminated books, which made the content easily understandable.
    Please thank on my behalf everyone who was involved in the preparation and execution of the training. I look forward to attend future trainings once I will have an opportunity. I highly recommend to Grants Managers, DCOPs, COPs to attend this cource with mr.Chris O’Donnel.

    Our sincerest thanks to Chris for taking hundreds of policy pages and making them more approachable and relevant to our project work. One of the strengths of the training was Chris’ willingness to balance the overall USAID procedures and guidelines with real-world examples – both from Chris’ experience as well as all of the students in the course. Chris took care to answer all of the questions that we brought forward during this time and I feel more empowered and confident to engage with USAID grants as a result. Looking forward to a next opportunity to learn from Chris!
