Advantage of GRE Interactive Training

Use our fun, highly-interactive style of training, versus boring cookbook training. Proposal cookbook training is marginally beneficial for increasing one's knowledge of the terms and techniques of the art and science of proposal writing. GRE's approach includes classical rhetoric, arts of persuasion, appeals to logic, reason, authority, and the psychology associated with graphics, in addition to the basic cookbook body of knowledge. Our research has indicated that more than 66% of those who received traditional cookbook proposal training have been dissatisfied, since they felt they were exposed to a majority of knowledge already known or because the course's emphasis was on "what to do" rather than "how to do it".

We recommend a workshop forum using an incumbent or draft solicitation. GRE's proposal coaching is a hands-on seminar, which uses an advanced solicitation and focuses on sample tasks and write-ups which are collaboratively improved by the participants through coaching. Their output is therefore available for the actual submittal. This process has proven successful, as demonstrated by our clients' testimonials. GRE tailors proposal training to meet our clients' needs. The sessions involve hands-on coaching exercises in a small group configuration, equivalent to the real world environment of proposal writing.

GRE Training includes:

  • Use of Draft or Actual RFPs To Leverage Training and Productivity
  • Small Group Exercises which Apply Theory to Acquire Knowledge and Skills
  • Tools Which Facilitate Strategy, Action Item Closure, Reviews and Production

  • Use and Balance of Graphics in Proposal Development
  • Techniques for Increasing Evaluation Scores and Reducing Costs
