    Description

    When you invest time and effort into writing a business proposal, you want that proposal to have as a high a chance of winning as possible. You want your proposal to persuade your reader that they need you. And you want your written effort to reflect the high quality of the service or product you’re offering.

    In this workshop, you'll learn how to make your reader and their needs the highest priority in your proposal. You’ll also learn how to make the benefits of your proposal real to them.
