Delivered in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council this is one of a series of events for those businesses who want to improve and expand business development opportunities and to make themselves supply chain fit. The sessions will provide an understanding of what potential opportunities are available and how to ensure that your business can comply with the demands of the procurement process either as a direct supplier or in the supply chain.

The programme is one of many Nottinghamshire County Council initiatives supporting local growth and will help local supply chains to win more work when it comes to public procurement opportunities, including national infrastructure projects such as HS2

There are opportunities arising across a wide and diverse portfolio, suitable for all business sizes.

As the Government plans to bring forward infrastructure investment, promising to “build back better, build back greener, build back faster” - this is the time to ensure your business is ready to take advantage of these opportunities and be fit to supply.

Session detail:

Delivered by Dewi Hughes, founder and MD of Silverlock Tenders, one of the main tender writing companies in the Midlands, this session will provide delegates with practical information on how to develop and submit the best tender possible. It will cover the 10 key lessons that Silverlock has found are most important in order to be successful at winning tenders, including detail of the Competefor platform, which is also the preferred tendering platform used by HS2.

Silverlock’s clients are mainly SMEs and include companies from the construction, civil engineering, rail, energy, cleaning and security industries. Prior to setting up Silverlock in 2009, Dewi spent 21 years working for the Government which included 12 years appraising bids for government funding, 4 years writing for over 50 government ministers, and 4 years managing large European funded projects.
