Mudgee Region Tourism Inc (MRTI): MRTI engaged the services of Melanie Trethowan to assist with the compilation of a funding application.  Grant writing is a precise and specialised skill and Melanie is particularly talented in this area. She has a rare talent of being able to see the ‘big picture’ combined with an attention to detail and a focus which ensures tasks are completed and deadlines are met.  Melanie is professional, exacting without being demanding and a pleasure to work with. MRTI would endorse her work wholeheartedly.
