Speaker Night: The Proposal

Join Chris and Moira on Wednesday evening!

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for. The time is right, hints have been dropped, and you can just hear those magic words: “I do!”

Everybody loves a good proposal, but instead of spending two months’ salary on a ring, why not earn money instead? On Wednesday night, Moira White and Chris Lendrum will provide expert advice on proposal writing and submission so that you, too, will know just what to say when the agency of your choice pops the question.

On March 19, join the Editors’ Association of Canada for Speaker Night: The Proposal. You’ll have a unique opportunity to learn about the following:

– Crucial strategies for differentiating yourself from other applicants
– Selling your skills like a pro
– Mastering the technical requirements of completing a proposal/RFP
– Writing a high-quality executive summary
– Managing the multi-step application process
– Techniques to exceed the expectations of your audience

This and much more will be available to you, so don’t miss this wonderful opportunity. We welcome your questions and look forward to seeing you there!
