In 1988, Shipley recognized the need for a professional association that focused on proposal management. The company invested time, resources, and talent to establish a non-profit association, the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP). Several thousand members and dozens of regional chapters around the globe now support the proposal profession through conferences, certification programs, a body of knowledge, and a business development community of practice. Shipley remains a Platinum Sponsor of APMP and is one of only a few Approved Training Organizations (ATOs) offering continuing education credits to certified members.
Shipley has helped clients succeed in each phase of the business acquisition process, from win strategy development to proposal preparation and contract execution.
Shipley was originally established in Bountiful, Utah as a communications consulting and training firm—focused on helping companies communicate more effectively. As our business and reputation grew, we expanded into many strategic markets, including oil and gas, healthcare, aerospace, defense, telecommunications, and information technology.
Today, companies from all over the world depend on Shipley to provide personnel, training, or tools to help them compete for and win business.
