The proposal clock is ticking, pressure is building as the deadline is getting closer, and soon the stress becomes palpable. But you still have a hard time squeezing the words from your or your proposal team’s brains down on paper. You produce something by the deadline, because you have to. But you know that if you had produced the same proposal document earlier, you would have a chance to make it so much better and much more likely to win, because you would have the time to polish the draft.

In this one-hour class, you will learn nearly two dozen techniques for combating the proverbial “writer’s block” to help you and your proposal team get through your writing much faster with a lot less stress.

Perhaps there are days when you feel inspired to write, but most of the time writing is torture. One hour later you have one paragraph written, and the rest of the proposal section does not appear any faster. Or, perhaps you are a proposal manager whose job is to get section inputs from multiple writers. When the inputs don’t appear, you have to do all the writing yourself. You wonder what you could do to help your team produce, so that you don’t have to continue spending sleepless nights rewriting others’ work. If you recognize yourself, and you are a proposal manager, technical writer, or a subject matter expert who often contributes to proposals, this free webinar is for you.
