Natalie Bramble – Author

I believe everyone should be able to access the tools and insights to win grants and improve their businesses and community organisations. That’s why I have built this ccourse, sharing my proven system I’ve developed and used to win over $70+ million dollars. This system has helped many others win successful grants. I am an experienced writer, assessor, panel chair and consultant to funders, helping them shape their programs. Social impact drives my work and when I’m not writing, training or mentoring in the grants space, I support organisations with facilitation, governance and planning services through my social enterprise iClick2Learn   

But that's not all!
