A highly experienced team with a professional, with an informal operating style who have worked very successfully with a wide range of public and private sector clients.
We have proven expertise in supporting businesses to win public contracts and public-sector organisations to secure funding. We may be justbid writers, but we can provide pivotal help in designing, rescuing, improving and evaluating of proposals, processes and projects.
We pride ourselves on our high professional standards, strategic commercial expertise and commitment to the people we work with. Over the last 13 years have built a reputation for quality and fast delivery.
95% of our business comes from recommendations
If clients want we can be fun, disruptive, anarchic, maverick and subversive. We constantly challenge unthinking bureaucracy because we hate it, we never accept conventional wisdom or traditional thinking (Please don’t tell our Government clients).
Our clients tell us they are delighted to work with us. They like our style, sense of humour, intellectual rigour, informality and passion for close collaboration. We always aim to become part of the proposing team. It’s not “us and them” but “we”. We take it personally. We care. We don’t just spot flaws for people we help fix them.
We now have a team of 9 - four full-time staff and five associates and can draw on their long-standing expertise in every dimension of public procurement and contracts, winning public funding, economic development and business support, conventional and digital marketing, communication and sales.
We have written successful bids for HallMark Meat Hygiene in England and Scotland, Grant Thornton, JP Morgan, Oxford Innovation, the West of England and New Anglia LEP, the Universities of Wolverhampton and East Anglia, Bristol City Council, London and Partners, the Birmingham and North East Chambers of Commerce. We have delivered projects for UK Government departments, including Business Innovation and Skills, UKTI and the Department for International Trade and supported bids to the Food Standards Agency, the Rural Payments Agency and the Regional Growth Fund.
We understand that people are reluctant to spend significant budgets on companies they have not worked with previously. We know that choosing a consultant is difficult (many members of our team have direct experience of doing it) so we regularly suggest to clients that they learn what is possible when working with us by allocating a small budget, so we can prove what we can do.
