Bid Writing Training

Winning bids align themselves to the clients’ requirements – we focus our training on creating winning content. Our trainers are successful bid writers with a demonstrable track record of winning bids.

The course modules and exercises have been created using ‘tried and tested’ methods that are now being utilised by bid teams across the UK.

In our one day course, bid writing professionals will take you through the bid writing process. We will help you create a compelling story, a logical structure to ensure your tender ‘flows’, and define win themes that can be woven throughout your quality submission.

The two day workshop provides an additional ‘hands-on’ day to put into practice many of the ‘hints and tips’ learnt from the first day. Delegates work on mock Executive Summaries, storyboards and responses to questions that are regularly asked by your Clients.

The Bid Writing course

Both the 1-day intensive course and the 2-day workshop comprise:

  • Pre course questionnaires to be sent to all delegates attending the training (including a response from the sponsors of the training to ensure we cover and focus on the most relevant areas)

  • Customised modules to prioritise areas for improvement and maximise value to the delegates

  • Customised exercises
