ABOUT THE TRAINING

Hi everyone,

I'm looking forward to seeing you for Brilliant Bids training.

You will learn how to structure your thinking and articulate complex solutions clearly by putting yourselves in the shoes of the client or prospect. You will feel confident about the core components of bid writing, from executive summaries and win-themes to value propositions and differentiators. You will understand how to write compelling sales copy that, ultimately, wins bids.
 
See you soon!

A great combo of practical/applicable advice, and so well presented. Looked like there was a lot of work put into a custom course, and I thought it was totally worth it.
