Run by: Cathy Day, Shipley


Preparing for the Kick Off Meeting

Morning & Afternoon Workshops   |   18th October 2016   |   Reading, Berkshire

A series of half-day workshops on Tuesday 18th October, the preceding day to the main Conference.  These workshops are being run in addition to the usual APMP certification courses, thereby offering you a wider choice of formal certification and training.

The workshops are designed to offer formal training which meet the requirements of some of the competencies required to pass the Practitioner certification. This is not the only reason to attend, as the courses are worthwhile learning events in themselves, whether you are considering certification or not.  

All workshops include lunch that will be served at 12.30

This workshop will cover all the key activities that a Bid/Proposal Manager should do before holding the Kick Off meeting.  Participants will gain knowledge of the best practice steps, as well as how to tailor them for different sizes and complexities of Bid/Proposal documents. 

Topics covered will include identifying all the requirements, building a compliance matrix, developing a proposal outline and preparing a proposal template.  Finally, the participants will learn about preparing themselves for the meeting.


Each session will provide competency training that has been specifically designed to meet the standards required by APMP for Practitioner Certification. In addition to the 10 CEU credits you will receive for attending the 2 day conference (optional) each of these training modules will earn you 3 CEU credits.
