Invitation to attend our APMP UK June event in London

Grammar and Punctuation for Proposal Professionals

Speakers:  Lee Hurt & Laura Ford

Venue kindly provided by Hymans Robertson, London

 Mind your Ps and Qs...or is it P’s and Q’s?  An evening to discuss common grammar and punctuation errors and how to fix them.

As Bid Managers, we often source content from a variety of Subject Matter Experts—not all of whom love the written word as much as we do.  During the course of the evening, we will discuss the most common grammar, punctuation and usage errors in written language: how to spot these problems and how to rectify them.

We will have a whirlwind tour through grammar, punctuation, composition and rhetoric, and a brief drive-by of psychology and human conceptual understanding.

The aim of the evening is for attendees to learn something new that can be applied practically and directly from day one.


Lee Hurt, Senior Manager, Strategic Bidding at Lloyds Bank

Lee's current role is Senior Manager in the Lloyds Bank Strategic Bidding team. The responsibilities for this role encompass line management, including coaching and supporting her team’s personal development, assisting to drive bid strategy and creating and maintaining the RfP content database. She is also responsible for the Word templates used by the team, ensuring that Brand standards and both Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland identities are represented.

Lee has over 15 years of experience in various writing roles within the IT, Telecommunications and Financial Services industries. She has been the team lead or sole writer in her past positions, which required her to manage teams of writers locally and offshore. In her previous role at Colt Technology, she created processes and procedures including a Style Guide and Operational Manuals that have been adopted company-wide. She also contributed to creating and documenting the Sales process. She designed and created intranet pages to support the activities within the process.

In her technical writing roles, she has been responsible for managing large-scale documentation projects, involving multiple technical manuals, several diverse, key stakeholders and strict delivery deadline dates. In her position as Lead Technical Writer at Oracle, she successfully led a team of local and offshore writers to meet overlapping documentation delivery deadlines for a large and complex product suite.

Lee has received a Master of Arts in English degree and a Bachelor of Arts in English degree, graduating summa cum laude (the equivalent of First Class Honours). Lee has taught two semesters of English Composition to University students and tutored University students in the Writing Centre.

Throughout her career, she has been passionate about helping colleagues improve their writing skills, offering group and 1:1 training sessions on a variety of topics, ranging from punctuation to rhetoric.

Laura Ford, Bid Manager, Strategic Bidding, Global Transaction Banking

Laura joined Lloyds Bank in 2013 as a Bid Manager within the Strategic Bidding and Deal Management team in Global Transaction Banking (GTB). Laura is responsible for the management and delivery of best-in-class of client proposals on behalf of GTB.

In her role, Laura is responsible for the end-to-end management of the proposal process, working closely with sales teams and stakeholders from across Lloyds Bank to ensure the delivery of the highest quality client focused proposal and pitch documents.

Laura leads teams through the proposal process, advises on best practice and bid creation, creates and takes ownership of the proposal response and project manages input to the deadline.
