The UK public sector spends around £393 billion a year through public procurement channels and has set a target of 33% participation by SMEs, that’s £131billion a year.

In this Lunch and Learn session, Tony Round will help you understand where to find suitable contracts for your business, what it takes to compete and win and will answer all your questions about the huge public sector marketplace.

Tony wrote and won his first bid in 1979 (clearly at the age of just five) and has been winning business through multiple channels and from across the public, commercial and VCSE sectors ever since.

Key takeaways from this session:

  • Discover where to find public sector contract opportunities, what to look for and how to identify the right opportunity
  • Understand how to navigate the public sector procurement process
  • Find out what it takes to win, risks, opportunities, challenges and benefits
