The business seminar before lunch

Growing your business with effective proposals and tenders

The government has committed to 33% of all its spending to go small to medium-sized enterprise (SMEs) by 2020 and with 1,981 published tenders with an aggregate value of £19,000,000,000…..

Pitching for bigger value contracts in the public or private sector means getting involved with formal tendering. Significant challenges and opportunities lie ahead when your business goes down this route. There are significant risks too. In the world of competitive tenders, competition is often fierce and the rules are strict. Knowing how to be persuasive and state your USPs clearly, while staying within the rules is an art you need to master.

Why you should come

You will get some insights into how you could expand your business through the tender process and formal proposals.  A sound bid process is a vital component of your sales effort.  Winning Tenders has recently won some £750,000 worth of business for clients…

What you will take from it

An understanding of the need to create real interest and even excitement about your proposal; and the fact that bid preparation and writing are skills in their own right that have to be blended with your subject matter knowledge if you want to be successful.
