Visual Techniques Workshop - Monday 15th June in London

Create a Powerful Bid Team Dynamic Through Visualisation
Presented by Margret Helsabeck, Harmonic
Monday 15th June 2015     |    London

Raise Your Game  - Get Your Ideas Across Using Visualisation Techniques
This interactive visuals workshop takes place in the apt setting of the amazing SCIN Gallery in London, which provides innovative materials for architects and technical designers to engage and invent with.
It is long accepted that visuals and visualisation are immensely powerful in conveying messages. In this workshop you will get a hands on opportunity to learn how, through various techniques, your bid team can gain the edge by having greater clarity in:
  • Understanding the role and responsibilty of all involved - frequently assumed to be understood yet in real terms it’s often not the case.
  • Learn how to use visuals in your proposals and the benefits of doing so
  • Working in groups: gain insight into the techniques and methods applied by your peers
  • Receive first hand feedback on practical work carried out in the workshop

How is Technology Changing the Way Bid Teams Work? - Mon 29th June - Chippenham

How is Technology Changing the Way Bid Teams Work?
Presented by Alex King, Amplio Services
Monday 29th June 2015     |    Chippenham

Some bid teams are now spread around the world. They have everything they need to communicate and share documents across continents. Customers are increasingly specifying entirely electronic submissions. Proposal automation tools have matured and are widely used. The process is moving towards entirely paperless bidding (except for the faithful Post-It note!).
But is this the future of every bid team? Do some of these technologies solve one problem but introduce another? What is ‘the next big thing’ and what stops everyone from adopting it? These are questions Alex will explore during this event.
