Reduce the stress of bid writing now!
It's no surprise that bid writing is stressful. With competing deadlines, lack of time and a hundred other tasks that need your undivided attention, too much work can impact heavily on your well-being and the quality of the bids you are producing. Stress is good in small doses, helping us to meet deadlines and perform under pressure.

But if you chronically stressed, then you are less likely to win the bids you are writing because you're more likely to make errors. As part of Mental Health Awareness Week , which is running from 13th-19th May this year, we have written some tips on how to manage your stress levels during busy periods of the year.
Book your place on the Bid Buzz Knowledge Day
There are still places on our one-day Knowledge Day. It takes place between 10am and 3pm on Friday 7th June 2019 at IWM Duxford, Cambridgeshire. 

This seminar will be an opportunity to update your bid writing skills and get the latest insights from our construction industry bid experts.

You will take part in interactive sessions covering:

  • Getting ready to bid and preparing your submissions
  • Understanding the buyer and their requirements in 2019
  • Current trends, industry insights and new bid writing tools
  • Soft Landings: An alternative method of demonstrating added value
  • Writing your submission – strategies for success
  • Ensuring 100% compliance
  • Tactics for creating compelling responses
  • Creating the differentiator in your bid

Tickets are £175 + VAT and include refreshments throughout the day plus a buffet lunch and
a tour of the aircraft museum.

Places will be limited to ensure accelerated learning in small groups. Early booking is therefore advised. Review the full agenda and book online.
