Profile A meticulous and hard-working Bid Writer, Editor and Proof Reader who is able to take poorly-written content and add the extra 10% that turns it into a winning proposal. Will edit and critique the proposal to ensure that the key sales messages are incorporated, that it is written in a consistent, grammatically-correct manner, answers the questions and meets all production and delivery requirements. Can cut down text to meet word counts without losing any key messages. Able to work from bullet-point response outlines to ghost-write answers.
