The human brain is wired for storytelling—stories are memorable, create shared viewpoints, and move the reader. A great story has an interesting plot and characters you can root for; it uses narrative devices to keep the reader’s focus. A great proposal has the same profile.
To be sure, you won’t convince sponsors to fund your project without facts and logic—but you’re most persuasive when your proposal tells a compelling story. We’ll help you weave every element of your proposal – the problem you’ll solve, the activities you’ll undertake, the people you marshal, and the budget you design – into a memorable and undeniable narrative.
Our training is designed for adult learners – we link abstract concepts to your concrete challenges, explain and model processes to analyze problems, and provide rubrics to implement solutions. In-person workshops are lively, online webinars are designed with e-learning best practice in mind.
Our services are highly customized to your needs. If you’re pressed for time or lack capacity, we can deliver turnkey projects from strategic planning through work process design to staff training. If you want to save money or build capacity, we can design and manage the project and train or coach you to execute some or all of the tasks.
We have decades of experience in education, research, outreach, and service delivery. We’ve worked with organizations in the higher education, public schools, government, non-profit, and for-profit sectors. We do the little things that make you BIG
