BC Housing: 4 CPD Points
How do I write a compelling and winning proposal that clearly and concisely articulates the core benefits for a client? How do I ensure that my proposal is competitive?
This half-day course will help you to develop the confidence and writing skills necessary to write effective proposals. Through a series of hands-on workshops, you will learn the key elements of writing and submitting winning proposals, and how to tailor your content for audiences who are in your field, and non-technical audiences in other fields.
- Learn about different types of proposals, from formal Request for Proposals (RFP) and related requests from vendors to less formal proposals, estimates, and quotes.
- Understand how to differentiate your proposal from others by articulating your competitive advantages.
- Apply specific techniques across the planning, drafting, and revising stages for your proposal.
- Understand what clients are looking for when they are evaluating your proposal.
