Bid Writing : Interactive

TOPICS COVERED

Here is how the day works. You bring 11 copies of your standard funding bid or a recent bid. Print them out triple spaced in Arial 16 point font. We will provide a big table, pens, a trainer and up to 9 other attendees.

We will all review your bid. Word by word. Line by line. We will test out your jargon and your acronyms to see how well understood they really are. We will ask “What are you actually trying to say here?”.

Once your bid is revised you will have the chance to review up to 9 other bids to learn from other people’s bids and how they go about things. By the end of the day you should have a better written, clearer, more effective bid than you arrived with. If it is perfect already then at least you will have had that confirmed by up to 10 other people.

We will send you a questionnaire in advance about your trust and foundation fundraising statistics and strategy. We will all then review that strategy to see how you are doing now, what you should be aiming to achieve in the future and the practical steps to bring that about.

Finally we will review your organisation as a whole. What aspects should you be telling more people more about. What aspects should you be trying to improve in the years ahead to increase your success rate with trusts and foundations.

ATTENDEES

If your idea of training is sitting at the back and saying nothing this workshop will not work for. You will have to talk, share your ideas and argue your points. The purpose of the workshop is to gain insight from people in other sectors so we limit to two the number of attendees from any one organisation.

TRAINER

The workshop will be run by Ian Benson who has taught bid writing to more than 5,000 attendees across the UK over the last 3 years.
