Our presentation here at the APMP conference in New Orleans – ‘Two Proposal Managers Walk Into A War Room’ – proved to be a popular one, if the number of people who chose to attend this session from among the several others offered at the same time is an indicator. The room was, quite literally, packed (We collected 180+ feedback forms…and the room was set up for 100 people. And someone showed us a picture of people sitting and standing outside the doors as well!)
And interspersed among these were ‘The Top Ten Signs That You Might Be a Proposal Professional’. These were done in the style of Jeff Foxworthy, the comedian famous for his ‘You Might Be a Redneck’ routine. An example of out ‘Top Ten Signs’ is, ‘If you’ve ever maxed out a credit card…buying pizza…you might be a proposal professional. The comments after would suggest that our #1 Sign was the favorite with the people in attendance. (And of course, I’d be happy to share that with you…just send me an e-mail and I’ll put it in my reply to you. ;-)
The session was great fun to develop and present. And if the laughter throughout, the very flattering feedback – ‘Always entertaining, enlightening and refreshing,’ ‘Give these guys more time.’, ‘Always the best presentation of the conference.’, etc. – is any indication, the participants greatly enjoyed it as well.
So Jon, what shall we present NEXT year?
