THE BID SKILLS COURSE

Bid Perfect’s ‘flagship’ course that delivers the knowledge and skills you need to win new business by planning and writing consistently compelling business proposals. The course content starts at the initial bid/no bid decision and the bid kick-off meeting, and then shows you the correct way to analyse questions, how to structure your answers, what you must include and what you should leave out, and how you review your bid.

We leave nothing out and will also answer every question you may have about writing winning bids.

THE BID SKILLS COURSE (SHORT FORM)

This is the shortened version of the main course that will deliver the core knowledge and skills for writing winning bids.

This one-day course contains the primary insight you will need to deliver a compelling value argument in your bid. We cover the key aspects contained in the two-day version but some of the bid management modules are removed (such as bid/no bid decision making and running effective bid kick-off meetings).

We will also answer every question you may have about writing winning bids.
