Writing a Proposal

Learn the steps in proposal writing and understand the skills you need to create an effective pitch that best represents your winning project for any professional discipline.

Writing a Proposal guides participants through the process of building your case and selling your idea. A proposal is often an organization’s first impression to a prospective client or funder. Whether you are responding to an RFP, applying for a grant, or submitting a proposal for your product or service, being able to prepare a solid proposal helps you stand out from the competition and increases your chance of success.

This practical, how-to seminar develops your ability to identify and employ the best-practices of proposal writing. On day one, you will learn the concepts and procedures to write a detailed proposal and on day two, you will put theory into practice by crafting and assessing a business proposal.
