  • Company Comments
      • “ The focus of the sessions on the needs of small companies and as our company had no experience of public sector tendering, we found them extremely valuable. We have since used the skills to tender for contracts in the South and have been successful in undertaking contracts by ourselves and securing a major contract as a partner in a joint bid.”
