MEDIA EXPOSURE We have been overwhelmed by media interest in Red Tape Busters and the success we have achieved since commencing operations in February 2000. Red Tape Busters has been featured extensively on Brisbane Talk Back Radio where our Director, Shane Bowering, is a regular on Greg Cary’s morning show on 4BC. Red Tape Busters also regularly feature on Channel 9’s A Current Affair, the Today Show and Brisbane Extra. In the Sunday Mail we also have had our own weekly column providing special comment and advice to readers on Government and private sector liaison issues.
Since 1985, RA has trained over 25,000 individuals using our 13-step logical grant writing model. This approach, while very successful for RA, is one of many strategies that practitioners may use to find and apply for grants. We offer no guarantee that use of our grants development model will result in obtaining grant funds. Individuals who have attended RA classes, completed the course work, and passed a knowledge test received a certificate in grant writing. RA does not guarantee the competency of individuals who have taken our courses, the quality of their work, or success potential since every individual brings different experience, skills, intelligence, and education to the task. We recommend carefully checking references, asking for writing samples, and requesting a list of funded grants the professional wrote before contracting with a potential consultant.
