Bids and Tenders – Winning Work without Cutting Margins

11 June 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 20 June 2017 @ 8:00 pm


Anne Farr, Managing Director of Rothera Group Ltd, will lead you through the essentials of bidding. It will be a fast-paced session covering all the priority areas which need to be considered when winning work.
You will hear how to write for non-technical evaluators; use case studies effectively; show added value; maximise scores; streamline bid processes and more.
Originally qualified as Civil Engineer, Anne has a pragmatic approach to bidding so you will learn practical techniques to make your life easier. You will find out how to justify higher pricing, and ensure your proposal is better than your competitors.

Anne regularly works with clients from the public, private and third sectors. She specialises in helping companies in the energy, construction and engineering supply chains to win more work, at higher prices. She has worked on hundreds of bids ranging in value from £5k – £150m+ (and one at £1.32bn) but her real passion is training others to do it themselves.
The extensive work she carries out with tender documents, processes and writers will be reflected in the material you hear. She will illustrate the theory with examples of industry best practice.
Anne’s knowledge and experience will be freely available to you during this session, so come with examples and questions to ensure you make best use of your valuable time.
