Testimonials

"Amanda has reviewed two of my applications in the last few years, including my application for an NHMRC Senior Research Fellowship, and my application for promotion to Level E (Professor). Her feedback has been fantastic, very targeted, concise and thoughtful. Amanda has an innate ability to understand what review panels want to see, and I have no doubt her feedback has been critical to the success of both of these applications."

"I want to thank Prof Amanda Salis for the invaluable assistance she provided on my NHMRC Early Career Research Fellowship application. Amanda helped me incorporate my CV into different areas of my application. Her suggestions gave me better ways of expressing myself and helped me create a story that flowed throughout my entire application."

"Amanda was instrumental in helping me to write my application for an NHMRC Career Development Award application, which was funded from 2011 to 2014. She showed me how to highlight several aspects of my CV that I had overlooked as being important in an application for a basic research fellowship. For example, she helped me to showcase my past experiences of running a medical team in a hospital in China when I was a junior doctor, to demonstrate my leadership skills and vision. She also helped me to write the research proposal in my application clearly, and to show how all my past experiences made me uniquely positioned to lead my proposed research. I am certain that if it had not been for Amanda’s critical review and feedback on my application drafts, I would not have won this award."

Amanda has a unique ability to transforms simple statements into meaningful impact statements that clearly and concisely address assessment criteria. With her feedback, I have learned how to more effectively communicate the 'so what' factor of my work and to highlight how my past, present and planned work link together. Without a doubt, Amanda's feedback has contributed to my success."
