The Great Proposal Challenge:
Putting Strategy and Creativity to Work

Producing winning proposals takes time, focus and your expertise. . .and sometimes we also need a bit of inspiration to get there.   Proposal inspiration is the goal of our November meeting where we will learn from and share with each other, and then work on our skills in groups on real life RFP challenges.  

We have planned a great day with advice, guidance and discussion to help inspire you.   Our day will start with a presentation on Taking Your Proposals to the Next Level by Kayte Hamilton, co-chair of the 2018 and 2019 Qually Awards.  Our workshop will get an additional dose of inspiration from the Thoughtly Crew, a unique Chicago-based Creative Agent firm.
