Hints for Successful Proposals
- Compliance & Legal: So much of your business is about compliance these days, especially with ongoing implementation of the new RESPA Rule and the CFPB on the horizon. With increased regulatory scrutiny, you've really got to know how to do business on the right side of the law. Our legal and regulatory experts will make the rules clear and understandable and you'll get information that you can share with your staff and apply immediately to help keep your company in compliance.
- Sales & Marketing: If you're not actively selling, you're not doing business! Your company provides excellent products and services, but they don't always sell themselves. Our sales and marketing experts are really your coaches, helping you grow the right mindset so that you and your staff are always on alert for opportunities to close the deal, keep those customers happy, and maintain good business relationships.
- Small Business: If you're the jack-of-all trades in your company, handling everything from human resources and finances to strategic planning, this is the track for you. Our faculty will teach the strategies you need to prioritize and succeed. If you employ experts to assist you, it's also a great opportunity to confirm that you've got the best of the best working for you.
- Technology Trends: Technology is the key to enhancing productivity, efficiency, and customer service. Whether your next decision is a new production software system, an upgraded web site, or a move to electronic closings, you'll learn how to get it done. Join us and develop a technology strategy that will put you on the path to a paperless operation and position you to offer your customers the latest in electronic access to information.
- Proposals are expected to be company- and product-neutral, educational in focus, and well-formed.
- Session name and description should be proposed using correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
- Complete contact information should be provided for all proposed presenters and panelists.
- Carefully consider the mix of speakers and panelists. If you are a vendor, you may want to team up with a customer to propose a case study.
- If any part of the content of your proposal is vendor or company specific, you should consider forming a panel with presenters from competitor companies. These types of panel presentations are very popular and have proven to be successful.
- Presenters can draft and refine proposals using word processing software and then block and copy the proposed session description into the form.
