Bringing an experienced Bid Writer in to help form your response can provide you with the winning edge. However, when considering using a consultant, we advise you fully assess the resources available to you to first identify what skills you’re missing. We’ve seen businesses enquire about support which they had internal resource for, and others who started bids blindly only to encounter issues down the line.

In our upcoming free webinar we’ll help you make informed decisions when deciding whether or not you require the support of an external Bid Writer.

Our webinar will be held on Wednesday, 23 March 2021, 1.00-1.45pm, and will cover the following topics:
◆ How to assess your resources, identifying strengths and weaknesses
◆ When to consider using a bid writer
◆ The pros and cons of both options
◆ Getting the most from a consultant
