Presentation available – Proposal writing and the eight-second attention span

APMP Maple Leaf Chapter Webinar Replay

In this updated presentation, Lisa Pafe reprises her highly rated SPAC 2017 presentation and shares how to modernize your proposal writing (relevant for all proposal managers and writers).

A 2015 Microsoft study found that digital distractions have resulted in the average person having an 8-second attention span, less than a goldfish! A 2016 Harvard Business Review article stated that bad writing is the biggest productivity buster. Yet, we still write proposals the old-fashioned way, as if our evaluators have unlimited time and focus. This webinar discusses how to modernize our proposal writing to win in the digital age, using persuasive, attention-grabbing techniques such as calls to action, exceeding expectations, and clearly relevant writing.
