We Win Bids.

In the early 00’s we fell into bid management – we won’t pretend that there was a strategic plan – it was all quite random.

We won six major bids in a row and thought, “how hard can it be?” We lost the next three bids and realised that it was ridiculously hard.

To win systematically we needed foolproof systems, processes and amazing people. We are now working with Plc’s, Fortune 500’s and VC backed start-ups globally. We win way over 80% of what we bid, and we are constantly coming up with new and innovative ways to keep our clients ahead of their competition.

This blog was created to share some of our secrets with you...enjoy!
