The sales proposals and presentations that they developed with us were outstanding. The underlying messages were simple and crisp, appealing directly to our targeted audiences. Their role in delivering key sales wins in London and in the South West was absolutely invaluable
Stop Drowning in Bids – We’ll teach you how to Swim
Oftentimes it is quite right that you insist that we take on vital proposal workstreams so you can concentrate on other activities within your business.
Whilst this is a completely legitimate way of working, it’s merely a short-term fix. It is unlikely that your people have learned much.
We’ll serve as an essential life raft in your time of need but really …
…. wouldn’t you be better served by bringing your own people up to the standard of Olympic swimmers! That way you can stop worrying about drowning in bid work.
So, our preferred model – and the one usually preferred by Bid Teams – is one of client empowerment.
Client empowerment translates as staged skill transfer, allowing you to take increased control of an optimised bid process and have your own teams and people enjoy the benefits – indeed the glory – of improved win rates. The most effective interventions appropriate for your company and your bid team will depend on your existing strengths and weaknesses.
