Creating the Compelling Proposition

Whether you are in the business of selling energy products and services, selling ideas to stakeholders such as regulators or government, or offering your wares to the Energy and Utility industry itself you need to make your propositions as compelling as possible.

With so much going on in the areas of smart metering and energy services the need to differentiate yourself from the competition has never been greater.

By adopting the Pyramid Thinking approach to creating propositions (be they bids, marketing collateral, or discussion papers) you will:

I know that from the day I was trained in the discipline in 2000, it changed the way I communicate, and has been an essential element of many successful bids over the past 9 years. My only regret was that I had not learnt it 25 years earlier. Not only is the approach intuitive and easy to learn, it also mirrors the way in which the human brain needs to process information. That is why it is so powerful and effective. 

We have been delivering Pyramid Thinking training and mentoring to players in the energy and utilities world for over five years now. With our tailored 1 or 2 day course your team will not only be in a position to use the approach to drive up their productivity and success - they will also have put it into practice on a real bid or communication challenge they are facing.
