From listening to our communities and partners over the years, we identified the challenges they face and committed ourselves to solving them. Business Development is essential for organisations to survive.
Income, impact, and attention are essential aspects of modern emerging social enterprises. We help identify key insights about organisations so we can develop their business. For example, by equipping a social enterprise with a better understanding of their client needs, we can improve their offering and sales skills to raise revenue. This enables them to progress, make a real difference and impact lives positively. Everybody wins.
Our clients entrust us to deliver project management and coordination support for their organisation. We project manage your business needs to deliver project efficiency and a high-class end-result. Leading to in increased income and improved event management capabilities for future projects.
Our partners usually find bid writing intimidating and in some cases tiresome. Therefore, we offer bid/tender development support. We use our insider knowledge whilst gathering specific intelligence about suitable bids so we can match organisations’ ideas to eligible bids. This vastly increases their chances of obtaining, delivering and developing from bids and tenders.
We also encourage better organisation skills. We implement efficient bid development strategies into the organisation’s practices and routines. This service is especially useful for organisations with challenges, disabilities or disadvantages as we can deliver bids on their behalf.
