Benchmarking your Proposal Capabilities - Farnborough - 25th Sept
Do come and join us for this unique event, during which you will have a chance to benchmark your bid and proposal capabilities – in real time.
You’ll get the chance to see how you rate compared to your peers. You’ll get validation of the areas in which you’re already applying best practice. And you’ll see things you could do to sharpen your organisation’s proposal capabilities. We’ll also – perhaps provocatively – look at the average score compared to international averages!
The session will use an innovative new tool – the Proposal BenchmarkerTM – launched this spring to mark Strategic Proposals’ 30th anniversary. Participants will assess their capabilities during the workshop using the structured questionnaire, facilitated by one of the UK’s most respected proposal experts. Please bring along your phone so you can complete the tool in real time during the session.
After the event, those who attend will be sent a personalised report summarising and making recommendations based on their self-assessment findings, compared to the overall survey group.
This really is a must-attend event for anyone interested in assessing and improving their approach to retaining and winning business.
