E-mail Seminar Proposal and Acceptance

For projects less than $20,000 we often consider a simple e-mail with the customer's acceptance by return e-mail enough of a paper trail to proceed. This is especially true for brand name corporations not in difficult financial circumstances.

The first e-mail below is a general proposal, the second e-mail explains pricing, and the third e-mail shows the customer's acceptance of the proposal and pricing. Notice that I cut and pasted my signature into the e-mail, which makes it more personal. This was a seminar which might be attended by two people or twenty. The seminar was voluntary, so we wanted to be paid $1500 even if no one showed up, and the company agreed.

Hi Marylyn,
Thank you for calling me this afternoon. I appreciated everything you told me about your company, and want to do everything I can to make you corporate transition successful. I've attached a document that explains an executive-level outplacement program as well as a price list. The prices are ala carte, so we can alter services to find something you like. This shows CFO at 10% of salary. We can adjust that down to lower levels, depending on what you want to offer.

A one or two-day workshop addresses all topics a participant needs to get their career moving forward. The same topics are covered; the only difference is the depth of coverage. In two days, for example, we have a lot of time to review letters and resumes, and practice interviewing skills.

  • Managing Transition Feelings
  • Skills and Interest Assessment
  • Market Assessment
  • Resume Development
  • Cover Letter Writing
  • 25 Strategies for Developing Job Leads
  • Networking Skills and Tactics
  • Leveraging the Power of the Internet (Executive Portfolio and LinkedIN)
  • Interview Training
  • Salary Negotiation Skills
  • Closing a Job Offer
I'll be traveling and out of the office tomorrow, but will have my cell phone with me. Give me a call any time, and let's talk early next week to discuss.
Many thanks,
