October Lunch and Learn: Responding to Requests for Proposal (RFPs)

October Lunch and Learn

October 18, 2023
11:30 am - 1:00 pm PST

Responding to Requests for Proposal (RFPs)

CCEUs: 1.5 in Resource Development

We are pleased to invite you to an event about Responding to Requests for Proposal (RFPs) - where you will gain invaluable insights and strategies to help you effectively respond to RFPs. 


As a coach, you may be accustomed to traditional methods of building your practice, such as networking, marketing, and referrals. However, responding to RFPs, RFQs, ITBs, and RFIs is a less-known avenue that offers significant potential for coaches to secure valuable contracts with government and corporate entities. 


This event is designed to equip professionals like you with the tools and techniques to craft winning proposals that stand out from the competition and resonate with potential clients.

Join us as we dive deep into the best practices for responding to RFPs, covering topics such as:

- Reading and understanding RFPs and formulating the right questions to ask issuers
- Standard components of an RFP to help you draft materials ahead of time and reuse content
- Creating checklists to ensure you meet all requirements for RFP submissions
- Evaluating the requested scope and developing accurate cost estimates

We are honored to have Heidi Glunz as our keynote speaker. As the Director of Administration for the ICF Sacramento Chapter, CFO of Brain Squared Solutions, managing partner of Science2Wellbeing, and a certified PMP with over 17 years of leadership and management experience in the Nuclear Industry, Heidi brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to this event.

Heidi's experience managing multimillion-dollar projects and leading large teams has shaped her understanding of the importance of outstanding leadership, team engagement, and job satisfaction at all levels. As a leadership development instructor, leadership, values, and financial coach, she is dedicated to helping leaders develop the skills they need to succeed.

This event promises to be an invaluable opportunity to learn from an industry expert, network with fellow professionals, and improve your RFP response process. We look forward to seeing you there!
