Looking for bid training?

We can provide your business with the practical tools, guidance and knowledge to produce winning bids and proposals both within the public sector and B2B markets. 

Our 7-stage approach has contributed to 25 out of 26 wins for clients since June 2019 demonstrating that the guidance and advice we provide through our training is worth taking notice of.

Your team

We offer face-to-face, and digital workshops relating to our 7-stage approach to the bid management process.

Our bid training workshops are designed to provide and enhance the core skills required across the 7-stage bid process. The workshops will give you and your team practical tools and guidance in best-practice project management and bid writing allowing you to achieve high-scoring bid responses and increase marks awarded on future bids.

We can tailor the workshop around specific areas of our proven bid process – perhaps you’d like to focus on bid response production, or the final bid review. Be sure to bring along any retrospective or live bids to the workshop, so we can demonstrate how to implement the advice.

Our bid training workshops will:

  • Take you through every stage of our best-practice 7-stage bid management process
  • Be tailored to your specific requirements
  • Allow you to bring retrospective and live bids to the session so you can work alongside our advisory Senior Consultants to make an immediate improvement to your bids
