Writing a winning business proposal is both a skill and a craft that can be mastered through training and practice. Make your next business or sales proposal stand out from your competitors by learning how to plan and design a document that not only provides practical information, but grabs the reader and holds their attention to the end.
Achieving mastery in writing a winning proposal requires skilled research, document planning and design, outlining of key concepts, identifying the "pitch", the actual writing itself and finally organising, reviewing and editing. This comprehensive 1-day training course from PD Training teaches you the practical skills in proposal writing that will help you craft outstanding business proposals that win business.
This dynamic, professional development training course is now available Australia wide including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Perth, Parramatta and Adelaide.

"The course would be perfect for those new to proposal writing/with a requirement to improve their grammar/writing skills...The "know your audience" section(s) are top notch."
"Suzy was spectacular, she was engaging and intuitive. She read the audience well (which was difficult because it was a complete blend of skillsets - engineers, project managers, operations, warehouse etc.) Suzy kept the course content relevant and meaningful whilst ensuring the soft skills were covered in group activities etc. Thank you."
"Good course, well presented with some nice takeaways. Thanks."
"I found the course relevant and helpful to reinforce past learnings and also to learn new approaches."
During this one-day proposal writing course, participants develop various skills including identifying the key audience and the purpose of a proposal, creating a standardised framework, using details to perfect a proposal, using online and offline resources and writing, editing and proofreading.
Business proposals can vary quite widely as a sales proposal sent to a prospective client is quite different from an internal proposal outlining the need for budgeting for a new staff member or investment in an internal project.
The course provides participants with a comprehensive understanding and use of writing tools that result in the creation of excellent business proposals for both internal and external customers.

Many of the 'aha' moments in courses can come from the increased awareness of ourselves and our colleagues, these come through the REACH Profiles that is integrated into many of our courses.
The insights lead us to better recognise our tendencies and strengths, understand how to be more mindful of adapting to the needs and preferences of our team and our customers.
The insights are put into practice by appreciating the benefits of our diversity and either learning to adapt or implementing a strengths-based management approach.
We have a great range of high quality products that can keep these impactful moments top of mind back in the workplace.
The REACH Team Visualizer/Reminder can be used in multiple ways in both training and in the office. When displayed in a high traffic area REACH will be kept top of mind. Below are guidelines for use of the REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder which is also in downloadable format.
The REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder comes in two sizes of A0 841 x 1189 mm and A1 594 x 841 mm and is made from a sturdy 5mm corflute.

REACH Cubes are designed to build empathy and grow an appreciation for thinking differently. They encourage productive and positive interactions in the workplace, workshop or personal development sessions. They can be used in any creative way to grow REACH and below we have provided two recommended activities for use. The REACH Cubes pack comes with 4 REACH Cubes one representing each REACH Quadrant. Each REACH Cube is 7.5 cm squared and are made from durable EVA Foam.
When people are participating in activities during REACH workshops, training or personal development sessions provide each participant with a REACH Cube and ask them to complete the activity or interaction Thinking and Behaving based on what REACH Cube was provided to them.
Are they the Advisor focused on detail and doing?
or a Coach focused on People and Action?
This brings a whole new level of empathy building and appreciation for the strength of thinking differently.
After REACH has been introduced using the REACH Training continue to keep REACH alive in the workplace by providing each person with a set of 4 REACH cubes to take back to their work space.
Personal REACH and the REACH of their colleagues can be grown by using these cubes on a regular basis with these great ideas:
Stack your REACH Cubes on your desk and on top of the stack place the cube that is reflecting your current REACH zone. Ensure that you have the side that says “Thanks for dropping by, right now I am in my __________ quadrant” facing outward so those approaching your work space know how you are feeling and acting at that current time. This is designed to help those around you recognise different behaviours/responses they may or may not receive from you based on the situation and REACH zone.
Use your REACH Cubes to be mindful of your interactions with others. Whilst interacting use the cubes to review your behaviours and actions. Take up the cube of the quadrant you currently feel you are in and review these sides: Think before I act: Is this what I need to be right now? Flip the cube over to the side of the profile overview and think about the style in which you are Communicating, Conflict-handling, Delegating etc. Is this what you need to be to REACH the person you are interacting with? If not find the REACH Cube that best suits the situation and maximises your REACH with that person and use the profile overview to help guide your interaction.Download REACH Cubes Activity File
Learn to REACH Labels are a great low-cost substitute for the REACH Caps or REACH Cubes or the more physically interactive REACH Floor Mat. They work well in small and large team activities and can be used as a quick way to identify how others act and think through a different quadrant that is not theirs. They can learn to appreciate the different communication, conflict handling, delegating, planning and learning styles of others and through this increase their REACH.
The REACH Labels are made of a high quality fabric sticky labels that are designed to last all day training sessions.
These work well after training when stuck to people’s monitors or workstations.View all of the REACH Training and reinforcement products Here
