Use this sample as a starting point for a succinct project proposal intended to drive a conversation with executive-level clients and sponsors. It distills a lot of key information into a few punchy slides and deliberately leaves some questions unanswered that you can discuss live in the room.

NOTE: this is best used when it’s a proposal you get to present. I don’t recommend it for when you have to throw a proposal over the proverbial fence to be reviewed by an evaluation committee.
