I have been involved in developing the following proposals. Except for the UNICEF work, where I led the activity, my role in all is best described as co-author, involved to different degrees of specificity with desk research, interviewing, drafting, writing, editing and managing the process. I am not at liberty to indicate any commercial values, but at least two involved multi-million dollar sums.
