Effective Proposal Writing

Personal effectiveness
Gain practical experience, present information effectively and enable the reader to find and understand what is required easily to determine the action that is needed with this practical workshop.

Writing accurate, clear, concise and compelling proposals is critical. In fact, for many organisations, their future growth relies heavily on having employees with these skills. They can be the difference between success and failure in a myriad of different situations.

This workshop will provide you with the practical knowledge you need to present information  in a clear and effective manner, so that the reader is able to understand what you are seeking to persuade them to do, or agree to, and by when.

Participants are asked to bring samples of their own proposals to class for discussion and editing.
