Better Written Proposals = More Business! March #SWIBNTuesday Alert!

Ever wondered about the 'art' of writing a good business proposal? What does the buyer expect to see? How might you best make your proposal stand out from the crowd?

Have you seen a public tender and wondered what exactly was being asked for?

Fear not, this March's #SWIBNTuesday we'll be looking at those exact issues with Orla Leydon of Office & Training Solutions.  Orla is an extremely experienced trainer, with extensive knowledge across a range of sectors - and a specialism in procurement.

Orla will provide key tips on producing proposals or tenders, managing your time better and maximising your chances of successful proposal writing.

In advance of this months' session, Orla has asked that members take a few short minutes to complete a survey which will provide her with insights on individual member needs so that she can best tailor the session - you can complete the survey here ->

As always, please RSVP by registering on our Eventbrite page!

We're back... and straight down to business #brainstorming for January!

January is a time for New Year's Resolutions - setting out new plans and objectives for the year ahead, and readying ourselves for new possibilities.  This year, SWIBN is starting off on a theme which matters to our members - being better business owners - by learning new skills and dusting off any pesky issues we're experiencing in business.  

With a room full of experts, what better way to kickstart a new year?

This month, we'll focus specifically on your business queries - and you can submit areas or questions you might have via our anonymous "postbox".   January's #SWIBNTuesday will workshop those business queries that leave you stumped - through our table workshop format.  

As this is something you've told us you like, we'll also commit to running mini-sessions during our networking sessions at other #SWIBNTuesday events.

Don't forget to book your spot - hop over to our Eventbrite reservation page here.
