Successful bids, proposals and tenders are your greatest allies in securing new business. But writing winning bids and proposals is a complex skill. This intensive, practical course will give your team a complete understanding of the best practices in bid, proposal and tender writing, ensuring their writing skills aren’t what’s standing in the way of winning your next contract.

We tailor the content using real-life examples of your bids, proposals and tenders (plus the related ITTs and RFPs). So you can be sure that all the materials will be relevant and relatable for your team.

A key feature of this course is that all delegates receive our unique pre-course writing analysis. This covers 15 different areas of writing skills and helps us ensure the training meets the delegates’ precise writing needs, while ensuring delegates make rapid, targeted improvements.

You can also choose to combine proposal-writing training with consultancy from our experienced bid-strategy experts, who can work with you and your bid team to make sure you have optimised every part of the tender process.

(See how our bid-writing training and consultancy helped One YMCA win the biggest bid in their history.)

We can run this course remotely online or in person at your workplace or choice of venue.

By the end of the training, attendees will be able to:

engage all readers – from senior executives to compliance teams
