Free Bidding and Tendering workshop 3/4 June 2013 - University of Bradford

Winning business is essential at any time, but particularly in the current economic situation.  Many valuable contracts are awarded through tendering, in both the private and public sector.  However the tender process can be complicated and off-putting, and many businesses do not bid for winnable contracts because of the paperwork.  Many other businesses do not win the contracts they should because they lose out to less competent firms with better bid writing skills.

This course aims to help companies win lucrative business through tendering, and to improve their success rate at both the approval and contract award stages. 

The course is run by Dr. Paul Wright MCIPS, co-author of Excellence in Public Sector Procurement, who has experience of both writing and scoring bids.  This practical 2 day event, to help you to improve your tendering success rate.  The course will cover principles of both private and public sector processes, and draw on real examples and case studies. 

Delegates are invited to bring along their own examples of both bids and tenders for group discussion, and will form personal action plans for improving bidding success rate.
