We understand the challenges that bid and pitch writing teams face; the pressure is extremely high and last minute editing can result in late and stressful nights in the office.
Structured Bid Writing (Fundamentals) teaches a better way to approach bid writing. Learners are taught a range of professional writing techniques to improve both the quality and efficiency of their writing.
Taught by a professional writer, the training is lively and engaging, with plenty of opportunities for learners to put the learning to practice. Plus, learners are given a workbook to write in on the day and take back to the office, so they can refer back to it time and time again.
Following this training, the corporate outcomes expected are a reduction in lose rate and a noticeable increase in productivity for those involved in the writing process.
A handy checklist to ensure you have all the information you need to start writing.
