Description

Smart Bidding: How to win contracts

If you don’t know how to bid for public sector and private sector contracts (or even how to find out about them) this workshop will demystify the process. We’ll myth bust some of the reasons why you might win or lose with our panel of procurement experts.

This workshop will ensure you leave fully armed with the knowledge to start bidding successfully.

It will include:

  • Finding out about where tendering opportunities come from
  • Qualification - to bid or not to bid
  • Navigating the supply chain and procurement maze
  • An insight into procurement policies in the public and private sector - both large and small organisations
  • Practical advice on preparing to tender, writing bids with impact and preparing for your pitch
  • Q&A with procurement experts

Session hosts

The workshop will be run by Emma Mills-Sheffield, Mindsetup Ltd. Having spent the last 15 years in industry, most recently at KPMG, Emma has led major proposals and pursuits, sales PMOs, managed programmes and process improvements then broadening into training delivery programmes for bidding, workshop facilitation and coaching.

Across the financial services sector, creative and digital industries and engineering consultancy she’s experienced working with, and tendering to, public sector organisations, FTSE100 and Fortune500 companies, charities and start-ups.

Although they all operate very differently, what they’ve all got in common is… people! Running an efficient bidding process is only a foundation; it’s how people perform and interact which determines success.

Our expert panel includes:

  • Julian Wood - Head of Procurement & Insurance Services at University of Brighton
  • Cliff Youngman and Claire Hutchinson - Procurement Managers at Brighton & Hove City Council
  • Karen Brown - Head of Procurement at Gatwick Airport


Please note lunch will not be included.

We have a small number of fully subsidised places for this workshop for those unable to afford a ticket. If this applies to you or someone you know, please contact bee@brightonchamber.co.uk
