Do you find navigating through the Request for Proposal (RFP) to be daunting? This 4-part training series focuses on how to create government proposals that win contracts. The formats design is for small- to mid-sized business owners, proposal managers/coordinators, business development, marketing people, and anyone tasked with developing proposals, for winning government business.
