This is an ILM Development Programme and training is delivered by Charles Grosstephan, our highly experienced Bid Manager. He will guide you through the process from start to finish, making sure you get the formula right each time.

Our training courses are proving popular with clients, as they receive hands on, relevant information, as well as plenty of opportunities to have their questions answered. Plus the course is packed full of constructive tips and feedback too.

“Thank you for the training yesterday, Charles. Very informative, and gave me plenty of ideas for improvements to our bidding processes.”

What they said

“We found the course to be informative and helpful in the tender process. The course was delivered and executed well. The speaker, Charles, held his audience with the information provided and encouraged his students to participate in their experiences with the tendering process. Charles showed us how to make our tender stand out and what techniques could be used to improve the chances of winning the contract.”

Interestingly enough when reviewing my tendering options some of the points raised have become useful”
