Your presentation on Infographics at today’s CSMPS event was fabulous...it was very informative, reinforcing the value of visuals. [Infographics for Proposals]

Kathleen Dixon Iredale

Great presentation this morning. In architecture we are not allowed to draw or provide “free” architectural sketches in our RFP submissions, but you made me re-think how we can deliver information to our readers using pictograms.

CSMPS has helped me tremendously! Without CSMPS, I would not be where I am today. It is an amazing network.

I thought the event was fantastic. I can’t believe the value and information I was able to extract from it. Can’t wait for the next one!

It’s always good to hear what people who read proposals are actually thinking! I went to the last event with RFP evaluators (it was a school district, health authority, and Translink) and found that very helpful as well.

It's one of the few organizations that really spends time getting into activities that are of interest to marketers in the AEC and professional marketing services world.
