Ten­der writ­ing work­shop

The Corkman - - NEWS -

EACH year bil­lions of eu­ros worth of new busi­ness are awarded in the pri­vate and not-for-profit sec­tors on the back of writ­ten ten­ders and pro­pos­als.

There­fore, the abil­ity to write ef­fec­tive ten­ders is a core skill, par­tic­u­larly given the com­pet­i­tive na­ture of bid­ding for pub­lic ex­pen­di­ture re­lated projects.

De­spite this in­creased need th­ese skills are sadly lack­ing within many or­gan­i­sa­tions, of­ten leav­ing un­trained staff with the daunt­ing prospect of writ­ing a ten­der doc­u­ment that may be cru­cial to fu­ture suc­cess.

A one-day pro­gramme tak­ing place at the Fer­moy Com­mu­nity Youth Cen­tre next Thurs­day (Septem­ber 21) will take lo­cal peo­ple through the process of how to pre­pare a win­ning ten­der.

En­ti­tled ‘Pow­er­ful Ten­ders’ the pro­gramme is be­ing con­ducted by Ian McKay of Nav­i­gate Change Con­sult­ing un­der the aus­pices of the Lo­cal En­ter­prise Of­fice (LEO) Cork North and West.

Aimed at busi­nesses of all sizes, the work­shop will show par­tic­i­pants how to pre­pare per­sua­sive writ­ten ten­ders and pro­pos­als, in­clud­ing the pro­vi­sion of an adapt­able tem­plate to pro­mote strong ten­der and pro­posal de­vel­op­ment.

The cost will be €30 per par­tic­i­pant and places can be booked on­line at www.lo­ca­len­ter­prise.ie/cor­knorthandwest or by phone at 022 43235.
