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 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.
