Show Me the Money: Growing Your Career in Business Development

Thursday 30 March 2023; 12:00 to 1:00 PM Eastern time (GMT -4)

Straddling the business and technical sides of a company is challenging work that can benefit your career as well as your employer. Small technology companies that rely on federal government funding, for example, need someone with both technical literacy and excellent communication skills to write and edit proposals for clarity, conciseness, compliance, and persuasiveness.


In this webinar, you’ll learn how technical communicators can achieve new career goals in the Business Development (BD) arena while also directly contributing to their company's financial growth by writing and editing successful proposals.

Attendee Takeaways: 

  • Understanding SBIR proposals, and tips and best practices for working on them
  • Tools and resources for creating successful proposals for federal agencies
  • How working in the business development arena can help technical communicators grow professionally and showcase their skills, to everyone’s benefit


For current CPTC certificants: This webinar provides 2 CEUs for recertification, in the Project Planning, Project Analysis, or Organizational core competency areas.
