Make your bid the one to remember - for all the right reasons
According to APMP best practice, there should be approximately two graphics for every three pages of text in a bid. So why is it then that so many bids are wall to wall text with no graphics, or anything to break up the monotony of text for the bid assessor?
When planned well, graphics can convey compelling strategy, show key elements of your solution, and leave the reader with memorable imagery that makes it easier for them to award you the contract. Too often, graphics are a poor afterthought, and can do more damage than good.
In this interactive workshop, you will be introduced to graphics best practice, and shown how to plan your graphics to help you tell your story and sell your solution.
