BUSINESS WINNING ARTISANS

We believe a consultant must be excellent at doing, advising and teaching. You cannot advise or teach without doing; consultants need to be able to advise others on how to improve their world as well as do it for them; and… you get the picture.

 

Consultants are special animals that partner with clients to solve their problems using their know-how to deliver real business outcomes. We say ‘business outcomes’ because this is not just ‘for the wins’ – we want our customers’ world to be a better place after we leave.

BidCraft is its consultants. In a flat structure we all do what is needed to succeed.

It’s the competitive nature of bidding that got me hooked. That was over twenty years ago. Since then – through the joy of winning and pain of losing – I’ve come to realise that winning business is an art.

Did you know that saying “so what?” is a critical analytical skill in bidding? As soon as I found this out, I knew it was the career for me - and that was nineteen(!) years ago...

At BidCraft I help companies become better at bidding. My favourite thing is to help them beat the competition, train the team, or get stuck in to improve their capability.

 

I enjoy contributing to the bidding profession by presenting at conferences, which is a blast. I love presenting something new and challenging each time to get people thinking. The community and shared therapy of the network hooked me immediately, and now I'm proud to be their Finance Director.

 

I have a degree in psychology from Leeds Uni, so yes, I do know what you are thinking...
