February: Things Proposal Writers Should Know About Word

Please register for GMC February 2020 Chapter Webinar Things Proposal Writers Should Know About Word at 10:30 AM CST on Wednesday, 26 Feb at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8505086783935133197

Wouldn’t proposal life be better if you could wrangle Word into doing more for you? CF APMP Fellow Dick Eassom will show us how in this webinar.

Microsoft Word. A seemingly easy tool to use, but a tool with many features and optimal ways of using those features to assist our proposal development activities. If only your authors knew the dangers of cut and paste. Learn more about:

  • “Styles” and deploying proposal templates
  • Hanging indents
  • And other mysteries!

Based on years of having to incorporate author content into winning proposals, this webinar will show some basics (and some not so basics) on how Word works and how authors can help– not hinder– proposal development.

Dick Eassom, aka Wordman, is a Vice President of Corporate Support at SMA, Inc., and presenter at 16 APMP Annual International Conferences on using Microsoft Word for proposal development.
