City of Charles Sturt – Grants and Funding – work with our team

You can choose Wendy Perry and/or Scott Perry to work with you on your application, business, project, proposal or program.

Mentoring & facilitation are strengths, working alongside entrepreneurs, founders, governments, individuals, industry sectors, organisations, regional development agencies, startups, scaleups, students & unicorn companies.

Areas of speciality includes Entrepreneurship & Innovation; Future of Jobs, Skills & Work; Strategic Workforce Planning; and World Class Education including developing learning programs (online and face to face).  It would be hundreds if not thousands of grants, tenders, proposals, and programs that I have designed, developed and been successful in getting up for implementation.

The role in the ecosystem is as a connector and relationship builder, innovator, and leader, being able to open doors for clients locally, nationally, and internationally.

A good fit is open minded coaches and speakers, startups and entrepreneurs wanting to refine your pitch or program (face to face and online products), ensuring you are able to effectively communicate your value proposition, market opportunity, and outcomes for your clients.  For scaleups seeking funding or growth, I help fine-tune your pitch strategies to resonate with investors and stakeholders.

Inventors and experts may have groundbreaking ideas but presenting them persuasively is key to gaining support and recognition.  You will get tailored coaching, ensuring you can communicate the significance and impact of your innovations clearly and confidently.
