I liked the workshop, it had a lot of good information and was very clear from the beginning. The speaker was also clear about how to approach the grant-writing process and the attitude we should adopt whilst writing it.
The one thing I would recommend is to provide us with either a summary of the main points or the slides before hand as that would give us time to, at least quickly, go through them and have questions ready. As it was, I struggled to take in all the information and then formulate well-thought-out questions.

Very useful seminar. I look forward to more seminars or workshops focusing on grant writing.
