WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS THINK OF US?
FIND OUT WHY CLIENTS LIKE WORKING WITH BID PERFECT
Bid Perfect is currently providing bid training for c.100 Mitie sales colleagues under our Mitie Sales Academy programme. The feedback received from the attendees so far has been universally excellent and confirms our confidence in Bid Perfect to design and deliver the training.
We first approached Bid Perfect a year ago and they were professional and patient with us as we developed our requirement in collaboration with them. They offered expert advice, attended many meetings, and even delivered a taster session at our annual sales conference. We found the development experience to be painless and of the highest standard. We also invested in their eLearning modules which we have licensed and embedded within our LMS system.
Bid Perfect have expanded their services to us by recently by providing consultation, editing, and review services on a major bid, helping us to significantly improve our proposition.
Bid Perfect has become a trusted partner for us and we envisage a mutually rewarding future.
Bid Perfect has provided us with bid consultation, ad hoc interim work, and training services for ten years. Our first engagement with them was in 2009, when they ran the first bid training course for us.
We recently commissioned them to carry out a detailed firm-wide consultation on our bidding processes which had become inefficient through a period of mergers and significant business growth. The report we received helped us identify several key areas of improvement, not the least of which was the need to equip many bid stakeholders in our business with the skills and knowledge to strategise and write more compelling bids.
As a result, Bid Perfect designed a two-day bid training course for us which has been met with enthusiasm and has received excellent feedback. At the time of writing, this programme is currently underway, with three courses having been delivered and more planned. We anticipate that about 70 of our colleagues will have been trained by Bid Perfect by the end of the programme.
Bid Perfect are easy to deal with and work hard to deliver consultancy and learning experiences that meet our objectives and (importantly) make things less complicated.
Bid Perfect is Babcock’s trusted partner for the provision of bid support services. Since 2014 they have consistently delivered excellent service, proving many times to be attentive to our needs, reliable, accountable, and conscientious. Originally one of three strategic suppliers of bid services, they are now Babcock’s principal partner. This is the result of the excellent relationship we have with Bid Perfect, which is founded on trust, excellent value for money, and a pre-negotiated rate card that enables accurate bid budgeting.
Predominantly, we rely on Bid Perfect to deliver a continuous supply of professional and dependable bid personnel for interim support. This service has included bid writers, managers, directors, and graphic specialists to work on complex and demanding bids, frequently over many months. Their people quickly acclimatise themselves to the subject matter and help to shape winning content right from the start of a bid project, as result of the mandatory training they insist upon for all their staff and associates.
I envisage us continuing to use Bid Perfect for many years to come.
Our association with Bid Perfect began in 2014 when we met with two of the directors at a European bid seminar. During our initial conversations, it became clear that Bid Perfect offered a portfolio of bid support services that would meet our demanding and unique tendering challenges.
Since that time, Bid Perfect has provided us with a range of bid training programmes and learning seminars, process consultancy, interim bid management and writing support. We have found Bid Perfect to be a flexible, quality-driven, and trusted partner with a genuine empathy for our business and people. They deliver both ad-hoc services and formalised programmes.
On a personal note, I have found the directors of Bid Perfect to be engaging, knowledgeable, and highly skilled at what they do. We will be continuing to engage with them far into the future.

Wood PLC – June 2019
NATS has recently been successful in securing a very important new ten-year contract that also represents a good growth potential on our existing business with the client concerned.
Bid Perfect supported our bid by successfully delivering a programme of training courses that were received very positively by all those who attended. This resulted in them running a workshop that focused specifically on the strategy for defensive bidding, including the significant bid in question. Furthermore, Neal Basson – Bid Perfect Director – augmented our thinking for structuring and writing the executive summary for the bid.
Bid Perfect advocated their Bid Value Matrix tool to help with bid strategy and the development of the value proposition, which went down very well with our bid team.
Due to the success of the partnership so far, we will certainly use Bid Perfect for further customised workshops for future important competitive bids, of which there are a couple looming.
