MCA-Omaha October Webinar - Proposal Writing with Marie Patterson



10:00 AM – 12:00 PM Central





Topic: Proposal Writing 

Writing a proposal is the formal response to a potentially lengthy and costly sales and estimating process. In this course you will learn about the key steps of the proposal process, the necessary components of a proposal letter, how to respond to RFP’s, bid forms and exhibits, and overall best practices for proposals.

It will also cover tips for opening up communication with your clients, as well as follow up to help close the deal to turn your next proposal into your next project.
