Best Practice Techniques: Proposal Writing (SOLD OUT)

Proposals with Impact

Time:  2pm - 5pm

Run by: Susan Hanning, Strategic Proposals


Morning & Afternoon Workshops   |   18th October 2016   |   Reading, Berkshire

A series of half-day workshops on Tuesday 18th October, the preceding day to the main Conference.  These workshops are being run in addition to the usual APMP certification courses, thereby offering you a wider choice of formal certification and training.

The workshops are designed to offer formal training which meet the requirements of some of the competencies required to pass the Practitioner certification. This is not the only reason to attend, as the courses are worthwhile learning events in themselves, whether you are considering certification or not.  

All workshops include lunch that will be served at 12.30

In this workshop, we look at the key ways in which proposal writers can achieve greater impact. Areas covered include:

  • creating a powerful structure
  • getting the tone right
  • being clear and concise
  • achieving customer focus
  • using visuals and headings effectively
  • treating the proposal holistically

We also look at ways to avoid the common grammatical errors that can undermine proposals.


Susan Hanning CPP APMP is Head of Proposals, Scotland at Strategic Proposals Scotland and has more than 20 year’ experience in corporate marketing and bidding roles.  She specialises in training large corporates on how to transform their proposal presentations, drawing upon her very useful previous career as a research psychologist.


Each session will provide competency training that has been specifically designed to meet the standards required by APMP for Practitioner Certification. In addition to the 10 CEU credits you will receive for attending the 2 day conference (optional) each of these training modules will earn you 3 CEU credits.
