Join Lisa Ball-Lechgar for an informative workshop on writing a proposal. During this workshop, participants will be shown tips and techniques for responding to a "request for proposal" (RFP) and for crafting a well-conceived proposal from scratch. Using an actual RFP and real-life proposals, participants will learn what elements to include in their own response. They will also understand the four proposal types, how to gather research, anticipate potential questions and objections, and follow up successfully.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to navigate the competitive world of proposals and write stronger submissions with a higher rate of acceptance.
