Writing an effective proposal is a challenge. A proposal is fundamentally a sales document. It must persuade the reader that what is being proposed is the best way to meet the identified need. It will be most successful if it’s clear and understandable, and answers the questions it raises in readers’ minds. The day will involve hands-on writing practice with examples and discussion.
