Writing funding proposals over the summer? Come to the SCANZ Bid Writing Workshop with George Slim and see if we can make it simpler for you. George has been involved in bid writing from one side or the other for more than 20 years and has a track record of success with MBIE - and legacy organizations, HRC, Marsden and commercial proposals. He has worked across the system in academia, CRIs, government funding agencies and the private sector. George has written proposals for his own research, developed government funding policy and most recently helped a broad range of organizations and researchers develop bids. He has sat on numerous panels evaluating research proposals for government agencies, research organizations and private sector groups.
