The key objective is to grow your business.
Winning contracts and tenders can be the biggest step-change in that process.

But we can help with raft of other things too.

  • Getting your business bid ready, and using the insights we gain about your business through the bid-writing process can help you transform your capability, your understanding of your 'value' to other businesses, and every aspect of your sales and marketing.
  • Creating a winning Business Plan. We have helped transform businesses in Security Systems, Offshore Training and Maintenance, Construction, and one of the region's leading Accountancy Practices. We know how to get to the heart of any business and plot a clear path forward.
  • Providing hands-on senior management resource. We have helped one of the region's major charities navigate through a considerable period of change whilst providing interim Business Development Director resource.

I just wanted to say that the day was invaluable. It makes all the difference when a speaker is talking directly from practical experience. I’ve come away with great winning ideas for my business. Everyone on our table thought the event was excellent - thanks
