Proposal Writing Strategies Workshop

Why enroll in the Proposal Writing Strategies Workshop?

 In today’s competitive market, proposals are the lifeblood of your organization. Whether you submit large, multi-volume proposals worth billions, or single-page letter proposals, these documents determine the success or failure of your entire business.

Proposal Writing Strategies teaches a strategic process approach to proposal development and gives proposal writing teams the tools to craft winning proposals that present your organization as the best solution. Because the workshop is 70% exercise-based, participants are guaranteed to learn how to:

  • “Strip out” an RFP to find customer “hot buttons” 
  • Develop a competitive win strategy
  • Craft win themes throughout your proposal to drive home your message “Why us!”
  • Write not just compliant proposals, but responsive proposals to address specific customer needs
  • Reduce the writing time by as much as 50% to produce more polished proposals faster
  • Tie benefits to buyer “hot buttons” to create more customer-focused proposals
  • Translate technical information to communicate clearly with less technical audiences
  • Use visuals to communicate complex technical information effectively
  • Produce visually appealing proposals that can be skimmed and scanned for quick access

Finally, participants learn how to write in a way to give the reader a clear mental picture of your offering. Proposal writers must communicate key information to the customer and actually sell your product or service. 

After the workshop, you will be able to use an IFI Training consultant as a personal coach to help you continue to improve in your proposal development skills for three months.

“Great workshop! It will both shorten the time I will spend on proposals and increase the impact of the results.”

Do you have a question that isn’t answered here?


Will I learn more than just about writing proposals?

While the emphasis of the workshop is on writing proposals, we will give you a process for writing all documents that will not only improve the quality of your documents but will reduce your writing time by as much as 50%. You will learn what persuades customers to buy and what motivates managers to act. You will learn advanced writing techniques not taught in universities. In essence, this is a Masters Class in written communication.

What do I need to take the program?

Once you are signed up, just come and enjoy a highly interactive, enjoyable workshop.

Why are you doing live training?

We have learned that the best training–training where skills are retained and used–happens when participants and facilitators can interact and practice newly learned abilities with immediate feedback. Live training also allows the facilitators to respond to participant needs and questions, adapting as needed for the group.

Are there any discounts or scholarships?

Groups of more than 3 qualify for a discount. Veterans also qualify for a discount and can enter code VET15. Some scholarships may be available and you can contact us to see if you qualify.

What is your refund policy?

Refunds may be granted 2-weeks prior to the workshop date. After that, money can be used as a deposit. Contact us with further questions.

How will I spend my time during the workshop?

FI Training designs its workshops as “roll-up-your-sleeves” work events. We know people learn by doing, not by listening. For that reason, most of the workshop time will be spent in group discussions, group activities, and individual exercises with little “teacher-talk” or “death-by-PowerPoint”. 

Will there be breaks and time to catch up on office things?

very 60-90 minutes you will have a 10-minute break to stretch your legs and take care of urgent matters. There will also be time at lunch to catch up on things at the office. Lunch for all 3 days is included in the price.

Who should take this workshop?

Proposal Writing Strategies is designed for anyone who contributes to proposal writing and is especially helpful for those who oversee any of the review teams.

What happens if I have to step away for a meeting?

We understand participants are busy and taking off three days for training isn’t easy. We also understand urgent business sometimes can’t wait. 
The workshop is designed as a sequential event with each section building on the last to give participants an easy-to-follow process approach to producing proposals and sales material. If you have critical things you need to step away for, we will try to catch you up on what you missed.
