Limited SMPS Member Exclusive Event!

Interactive Virtual Workshop Led by Judy Straalsund, GraceWorks

We’ve all read the project proposal blah-blah, haven’t we? “This is who we are, and this is what we do.” It’s self-centered; it’s boring, and it’s just plain blah-blah!

What if the content in your proposal spoke to your clients’ different preferences and thinking styles? Wouldn’t that be helpful to your reader? Welcome to the power of writing with your whole brain! The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) is the world’s leading thinking-styles assessment tool. HBDI’s Whole Brain® theory helps us understand how people prefer to think, process information, and communicate.

In this fun, interactive Graceworks workshop led by Judy Straalsund, we’ll learn how to use Whole Brain® Thinking to craft proposals that will help your readers get your message and help them make the decisions that are right for them. 

Judy Straalsund, Freedom Finder with Graceworks, has served firms ranging from HOK and Skanska to Hewlett Packard and the Portable Sanitation Association for more than 20 years. Providing creative solutions for a variety of programs, Judy is a dynamic combination of experienced presentation coach, corporate trainer, artistic director, and mountaineering guide.
