Maximising Tender Opportunities to help Grow Your Business
Tue 21st November (09:00 - 12:00 )
Middletons Hotel Skeldergate YORK YO1 6DS

To really understand how the tender process works and how to produce winning responses to invitations and calls for tender, you’ll be given an insight into:

  • What is tendering
  • The opportunities being made available to SMEs
  • Benefits of tendering to SMEs
  • Perceived barriers to SMEs
  • Building consortia
  • The Buyer’s perspective - their Tender processes
  • The Supplier’s perspective - Key Stages & Management
  • Where the opportunities are advertised ... for free
  • A walk through some of the on-line sites
All designed to help and support you create and deliver successful applications.

The Masterclass is not sector specific, rather provides information and guidance that will support Sole Traders through to Managing Directors of SMEs across all sectors. It is therefore applicable to:

Business Owners, Managing Directors, Directors & Business Development Managers of SMEs - key individuals responsible for the Business’s Growth Strategy, who would like to explore the opportunities available from supplying the Public Sector with services or products as an additional pathway to growth. This may include collaborative arrangements with affiliate organisations.

Entrepreneurs & Sole Traders - wishing to consider opportunities to secure some long-term contacts, either through sole delivery or via collaborative arrangements with other colleagues.

Sales Leaders/Managers and other key Personnel - who have a role in supporting their colleagues to grow the business through sourcing more - including alternative customers.

Jane Fisher – Jane Fisher Associates - had over 20 years of experience within the public sector, not only applying for bids, grants and tenders - where she had a 100% success rate, but where she also wrote Tenders for Suppliers to apply for, scored tender applications and managed panels for the final selection of suppliers.

Since setting up her own business in 2013, she has achieved success through securing a number of lucrative projects via the tendering process, as well as successfully supporting a range of small businesses to secure long-term contracts, helping them to have a level of security as well as grow their business turnover.
