The state of the nation: Benchmarking Scotland’s proposal capabilities

We’ll be challenging bid and proposal professionals in Scotland to assess their capabilities – using our Proposal Benchmarker tool. Attendees will gain insights into the strengths of their current approaches and opportunities for improvement. In addition – but, as a group, we’ll build a unique view of a country’s work winning capabilities.

The event will provide invaluable insights to help you to pinpoint the issues and secure greater management commitment to fix the things that are causing you to suffer, acting as a springboard for significant improvements to win rates.

We’re seeing real interest in bid and proposal management north of the border at the moment – witnessed by our APMP Foundation course in Edinburgh selling out. This APMP session should, therefore, be a fascinating event. Free places are now available for the session, hosted by PwC on the morning of 17 May. You can book online via APMP UK’s EventBrite page.
