  • Creating a complete and comprehensive compliance matrix

End-to-end proposal management provides clients with the assurance that a proposal will be the best sales document possible—while being compliant and responsive. Balancing the tactical aspects of a proposal while providing team leadership are qualities all Shipley Proposal Managers bring to a project.

I took a lot of your teachings to heart, especially the pre-proposal planning, proposal development worksheets, and debriefing tips. As a result, my company had its best-ever month in new business acquisition…I now have a win rate of over 60 percent! Thank you for the seminars that have proven so valuable to me, my company, and my professional future.
