Ideas to get you started

Conference theme this year is Winning your Audience – the DNA of Engagement.

We encourage sessions which broadly reflect the aim of bids to appeal to, persuade and delight those who influence the final award decision through positive engagement between buyer and supplier.

Delegates will expect to take away useful knowledge they can apply in their working lives. Examples in the diagram showing a small selection of potential topics related to "Winning your Audience", conference theme for 2016



Choice of Presentation Formats

Competency sessions / workshops

Competency sessions / workshops

Hour-long practical and interactive sessions to raise competency levels relating to bid development and management. Have you developed techniques to successfully address a problem or created a new route to bid excellence?

Case studies

Case studies

In-depth analysis of an authentic bidding event, highlighting the challenges encountered on the journey, explaining how they were addressed and debating the critical success factors. What lessons were learnt? How was best practice applied?

Specialist topics

Specialist topics

The large number of delegates attending conference include many looking to increase their skills in specialist areas relevant to their work. To address this need we encourage speakers from across the bid profession and beyond.

Examples might be presentation of research you’ve carried out, business trend analysis, regulatory change, measuring performance, buyer insights and intelligence. Do you have your own industry-specific metrics or experiences that you’d be willing to share?


Tips and Guidance

We welcome both innovative and core discipline presentations which support a balanced conference programme. Feedback from previous conferences indicates a preference for interactive sessions that encourage live debate or which include hands on exercises that improve understanding and help the message stick.

NB Information you provide will be incorporated into the conference brochure to enable delegates to select the sessions they wish to attend. Applications received after the deadline may not be considered. The more engaging your session title, summary and biography, the more likely you’ll be selected to speak - and the more delegates will be attracted to your presentation.
