12 modules that will give you the skills, strategies & techniques to write a winning bid, proposal, tender or pitch every time

Module 1 What's in it for the client?

This module will change your thinking, moving you away from an emphasis on you and what you do, to focus on the client and what you can do for them.

Double, triple, or even quadruple the speed at which your writers produce bids and tenders. A three-stage process that will unlock the full productivity of your team by separating out the three key elements of effective bid writing.

A common-sense approach that will give your team the time they need to plan, create, write and edit winning bids, proposals, tenders and pitches.

Module 4 Analysing the Request for Proposal (RfP) to create a response that is a quick and easy read

Consistently analyse all RfPs to get rapidly to grips with the client’s key needs and expectations, then structure your document so it transparently maps into the RfP.
