Thornton & Lowe offer a variety of courses to clients wishing to develop their in-house Bid Writing resources, helping them to write a compelling, compliant and competitive bid. Clients receive practical, hands-on, relevant information; based on industry best practise as well as input direct from procurement teams, in addition to years of experience in over 125 sectors.
So far, in the first quarter of this year alone, there has been a huge increase in the uptake of places on Bid Writing courses held across the country. Thornton & Lowe are very proud to be helping so many of their clients grow their business and improve their success rates. As a result, Thornton & Lowe are adding many more training opportunities for companies to take advantage of their expertise and experience.
Training Manager, Charles Grosstephan, accredits this surge in demand for training to the desire for businesses to get ahead of their competition and develop their in-house skills.
“Whilst writing bids is a highly specialised skill that some people consider to be highly complex, many organisations need to recognise the potentially lucrative opportunities they could access with the right bid training and support.
“Our Bid Writing training workshops are delivered in a highly interactive way and are completely underpinned by our extensive knowledge of both bidding and procurement to help delegates fully understand the requirements and construct a compelling and compliant bid.
“We are incredibly proud to be imparting this knowledge on an ever-increasing number of delegates, many of whom contact us post-training to share their success stories on recent bids with us.”
One such testimonial came from Business Development Engineer Andy Davis, who has stated that, since attending a recent Bid Writing workshop, he “will indeed be putting some of the useful hints, tips and advice into action and drawing out those benefits.”
“Despite having worked on successful bids in the past, it was great to hear and understand how they can be made even better in the future” Andy has stated. “It was also good to understand where we may have lost points on unsuccessful bids in the past due to missing or poor information.”
From Introduction to Bidding courses to a 2-day Bid/Tender Masterclass, the CPD-accredited courses offered by Thornton & Lowe cover all aspects of preparation, planning and progression for those wishing to keep the development of their bids in-house. In addition, Thornton & Lowe offer industry-specific courses and bespoke in-house bid writing training courses, developed exactly to client requirements. Training is open to anyone within an organisation looking to improve company success rates, with some courses designed for beginners and some designed for those with more experience.
