You see it all around you. Even with improving economic conditions, there are still more firms chasing fewer opportunities. That seems to create intense downward pressure on fees, and you are left wondering how to actually grow your backlog and spend less time chasing dead-end project opportunities. You want more bang from your proposal investment buck. You want the proven secrets for standing out from the crowd, winning work without cutting your fees, making your proposals more strategic and less a game of chance, and trouncing your competition!

This is your chance to spend two energizing days tearing apart actual proposals to uncover the real secrets of a winning one! Unless your proposal hit rate is 100%, you are sure to take away tips and tricks that you can put to practice immediately.



In our popular two-day A/E/C Proposals Bootcamp, you get this and so much more. No other program packs this kind of punch when it comes to what it really takes to develop and implement winning proposal strategies for A/E/C firms.
