BUILD A PREDICTABLE BID TEAM
with clear job roles backed by ongoing training and mentoring

Does this sound familiar?You’re doing all of the sales, which is distracting you from the rest of your company?You’ve hired the wrong bid & proposal executive in the past, or you’ve hired the right bid executive but they didn’t workout because you didn’t know how to train and manage them?

We understand that finding the right bid executives to build your pipeline is challenging and it requires having the right system in place.

We have the right system for setting up the right strategy for Kohler Mira, finding the right bid & proposal talent, and training them on the exact sales system that has allowed us to win seven and eight figure bids for our clients

We’ll find and assess all the candidates, and then once you decide on the bid executive, we will train and coach them on an ongoing basis.

As the only APMP ATO to offer recruit and learn, we have created a clear framework of values and principles that support and underpin our passion to support bid & proposal community.

Our approach will take 3 stages

We will also game plan the type of bid executive that fits into your organisation as well as design a skeleton Bid Process and Governance that will enable them to hit the ground running

Our recruiting partners will manage the entire process of finding the qualified candidates that fit our candidate profile. We will create a Job Role & Responsibility specific to your organisation.

Frequently Asked Questions

YES we would love to collaborate with your recruiters ensuring your business gets the right talent

YES, 100%. Individual 1-hour assessments are only £149 + VAT. Contact us for details.

We will assess your candidates within 30 days and the person should start with your company no later than 45 days after our engagement begins.

This is entirely dependent on the complexity of your product/solutions offer. You do not necessarily need to be involved in the proposal training, however your involvement in training should be to educate the bid writer on your business, your offer, etc. therefore your time investment can vary. The actual training on best practise bid process and rebids etc is on us. There may be some ancillary requirements for you to be involved, but I wouldn’t anticipate that being more than an hour or so per week.

We would have to define SUCCESS… You should have a positive ROI of the Bid Writer in 6-months. Expectations for any bid  writer should be very low for the first 90-days. Success in the first 90-days looks a lot like “is he/she progressing,” “Do they appear hungry,” “Are they beginning to generate good proposals,” and “Are they fitting in well with your team’s core values and culture”.

We’d have to have a better understanding of what your existing team or process looks like so it’s tough to answer this, however that is the purpose of the setup fee and setup month. We are going to integrate with your business and produce a bid writer that will graft into what exists currently. That said, we are going to also suggest changes to your process and team if we see holes or areas for improvement.

They will be trained for proposal best practices and should pay for themselves through successful proposal efforts.. That said, the ongoing coaching/advising over the course of the 6 months will be account strategy, bid process, competitive assessments and part of that includes how to handle selling including customer presentations etc.
