Profile Ten years' working in various technical and managerial roles in one of the world's biggest IT companies, this associate was given the opportunity to return to their first love: writing. More specifically, working as a Proposal Writer on the same company's sales pursuits. They are a great believer in plain English and render technical complexity, or sales and marketing hyperbole, into clear, simple, precise, readable English. Reading and writing everything from the client's point of view. Key Achievements Successful pursuits for a major UK-based Insurance company and for a multinational Oil company. Both had contracts valued at over £500m, and in both cases, this associate was involved at every stage from RFI (request for information), through RFP (request for proposal) and BAFO (best and final offer). Played a major role in creating the proposal and executive summary for a UK TV company. Worked on numerous successful bids, in both the public and private sectors, and across many industries, from Finance to Telecommunications, Energy and Manufacturing. These bids have involved multi-year contracts valued at anything from a few million dollars to hundreds of millions. Experience As Proposal Manager, this associate has had to marshal the resources of disparate teams, with widely different personalities, skills and aptitudes, and ensure that they do what IT technical experts like doing least: writing. As Proposal Writer, they ensure that proposals are professionally and expertly written. Often working with teams in Europe, India and beyond whose first language is not English, they ensure the proposal reads as if written by a single native speaker.
