We'll share why we feel that way throughout the proposal, but for now I just wanted to say personally that I enjoyed our time discussing (key client pain point / opportunity / need) , and I believe we have the skills and experience need to drive results for you and your company.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to your thoughts on this proposal!

It's no longer enough to just sit back and hope that running your business with integrity leads to word-of-mouth growth. You need to be proactive, and Reynolds PR knows exactly how to facilitate that effort.
PR can and will re-establish Sunscape Consulting as an industry leader.
Sunscape Consulting has built a strong reputation over the last four decades.

New fly-by-night brands have been encroaching on Sunscape Consulting market share through clever avenues and Sunscape Consulting brand has become less visible than in years past.
