Becoming Your Own Best Orienteer: Charting Your Professional Development Path

Melanie White, CF APMP
Proposal Manager, Trident Proposal Management

For proposal professionals at all levels, there is a vast array of training and professional development opportunities available. Unfortunately, the reality is that time is short, training budgets are often limited, and life often gets in the way. It is essential to select courses and events that provide the most proverbial "bang for the buck." The key to getting that benefit is to know where you are going professionally and to know the resources that you have to help you get there. A training plan is something that we are all familiar with. We have developed them for our companies, our employees, and our customers. But, how many of us have a personal training plan? Do we have clearly defined goals for the coming year? Five years? Ten Years? Do we know what it will take for us to reach those goals? Do we know what training we need to get us there? Do we know where to find that training? This session will help each attendee develop the framework for a personal training plan.
