East Midlands businesses are being invited to learn the secret of success when it comes to bidding for public sector contracts.

A series of free workshops is being run to help small and medium-sized companies boost their selling potential and improve their chances during the procurement process.

The three events are open to all sectors and to businesses across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland.

The sessions will be delivered by specialist consultants who have a proven track record of supporting businesses across a variety of sectors. Their clients have been helped to win more than £13 million in new business over the past two years.

The first session takes place on May 30th at Nottingham Trent University’s Clifton Campus between 9.30am and 1.30pm, and focuses on writing a successful Pre-Qualification Questionnaire.

This is followed by a second workshop at the same venue between 9.30am and 1.30pm on June 20th, which will turn the spotlight on writing a winning tender.

The final session, which is being staged at Nottingham Trent University’s City Campus on July 4th from 9.30am to 1.30pm, will concentrate on practicing the presentation skills that can help your company to win over a potential buyer.

Companies are being advised to attend all three sessions if possible, to make the most of the opportunities, but are welcome to book individual workshops.

The programme is being run by Nottingham Trent University’s Future Factory in association with The Food and Drink Forum and Action Sustainability.

Future Factory is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), and aims to support East Midlands small to medium-sized companies to adopt more sustainable products and processes.
