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.

A/E/C Proposals Bootcamp Agenda


PSMJ’s A/E/C Proposals Bootcamp is for anyone who wants to stop running around in circles chasing new work and actually win that work. This seminar is extremely useful for all levels of marketing and business development staff, as well as those Principals, Directors, and Managers who lead business development strategy, proposals strategy, and are part of key client presentations. Spend two days with us, and we guarantee you walk away as a much more effective marketer and manager.

Ken Tichecek

Kenneth C. Tichacek, Associate AIA Ken believes that the art of proposal-making really boils down to knowing how to tell a story and not just a good story, but the right story (“Tell, don’t sell!”). Ken leverages his ample facilitation skills to help program attendees tell those stories to unimagined success. Ken also knows how to think like a client because he was one for over 10 years, in both the public and private sectors.


Bill Hinsley

William E. Hinsley III With more than 16 years of A/E/C industry experience, Bill has used his extensive skills in business development to single-handedly attract more than $200 million of work. As a National Director, Bill also pioneered a successful $30 million business development plan. As part of this multi-million dollar BD strategy, Bill took risks—breaking into new services and attracting new clients—and as the client development lead on the project, the buck (all $30 million of it) proverbially and literally stopped with him.
