Event description

Description

Central government has made a commitment to spend £1 in every £3 with small businesses by 2020. That equates to around £15 billion worth of contracts each year.

John Fernau has spent 17 years in public procurement, previously as Commercial Director of the Home Office and before that, as head of procurement of the Olympic Delivery Authority.

​John became frustrated by the advantages that incumbent government suppliers have over new entrants. He founded Fernau Solutions to help redress this imbalance and he focusses on helping companies to bid effectively. He has a 100% hit rate so far and you’ll go away from this course much better equipped to decide if the public sector is an opportunity for you.
