      Frequently Asked Questions

      Where do you operate?

      We are based in the North of England, but we provide an international service wherever our customers need us.

      Which industries do you work in?

      We specialise in the construction, engineering and associated industries such as energy and logistics where we can offer best practice to your business.

      What experience do you have in work winning?

      Our team has over 40 years experience in sales, marketing, writing bids and operational delivery  in the Construction, Engineering and associated sectors.

      What processes do you use?

      We use our proven processes and templates to carry out analysis and to support you in your work winning endeavours.

      Can you advise as to which service is best for me?

      Our specialists can carry out Health Checks to identify opportunities to improve your win rate.

      How do you work with your customers?

      In today’s world of fast internet communications, we work with most of our customers remotely using Teams software. However, we recognise that, at times, face to face working is best so you are welcome to work in our modern offices or we can come to you. 

      Why do you offer to help customers develop their bid strategies and win themes?

      It is vital to develop a clear bid strategy and win themes based on your customers needs and competitor capability.  This will ensure that the subsequent bid responses reflect what your customer is looking for and puts you ahead of the competition.

      Why do you offer to carry out bid reviews?

      We have found that bringing in an independent reviewer helps to see things from a different perspective and allows the reviewer to play “devils advocate”.  This ensures that your bid follows your strategy and that the bid responses are consistent and to a high standard.
