Writing Successful Proposals 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 course 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.
This course is designed for business owners, managers, sales professionals and non-profit employees who are responding to RFPs, applying for grants, or submitting sales proposals and want to stand out from the competition.
