Writing Winning Tenders
Sophy Hallam from Cadence Works (and co-founder of the Third Sector Cafe) will talk you through the ins and outs of successful bid writing. Always a popular Cafe topic for discussion, participants are invited to bring along tenders or grant applications they have worked on in the past for feedback. Sophy will cover three elements of successful bid writing: 1 managing the process; 2 how to structure an answer; and 3 how to create a 'winning' proposition for your bid.
Although its always a stressful process, a structured approach to bid writing will increase your chances of success. Feedback from Sophy's tender training courses suggests that participants think the approach can really help:
"Sophy is very knowledgeable and provides well paced and accessible training. I think using the strucuture outlined in the course will make the whole process of future bid writing much less painful and more productive - thank you!"
