Writing Even Better Bids - Advanced Level - plus Online Follow-up Workshop (5815)
Online Follow-up Session: Friday 2nd November 2012Writing Better Bids
This course is part of a series of three Bid & Tender Writing training events designed to cater for the needs of delegates at all levels. The series offers a clear progression route through the workshops; however they also work well as stand alone topics:
1 – An Introduction to Bid and Tender Writing
2 – Developing Bid and Tender Writing Skills - Intermediate Level
3 – Tendering and Bidding Advanced MasterClass - Funding your Future
This one day advanced workshop enables more experienced bid and tender writers and contractors to further enhance their skill sets and identify excellence and good practice that leads to winning bids and tenders.
You will have had a good grounding and success in attracting funding and securing contracts and will be ready to make the transition to securing and achieving significant income and sustainability for your organisation and projects.
This unique workshop also offers clear progression for delegates who may have already attended our Introduction to Bid and Tender Writing and/or Developing Bid and Tender Writing Skills workshops or any other similar courses at these levels.
Delegates will bring an understanding of the language and concepts of good bid development practice and have had recent significant experience in successful project management, delivery and design. As this course will include peer appraisal, delegates will have the opportunity to bring with them their own work on recent bids or tenders to the workshop to contribute towards peer review objectives.
