Adding Value to a Competitive Tendering Process

When tendering having strong sustainability and equality & diversity credentials can give your business the edge over competitors. Many tenders now place stringent equality, welsh language, community and environmental obligations on suppliers and contractors, and these elements are scored much like the quality, cost and technical element. Having accredited management systems, policies, procedures and robust credentials and operating practices in place can make all the difference in winning work. This workshop will support you to implement Sustainability and Equality & Diversity best practice into your business operations, helping you to comply with the requirements of the new Future Generation Act. Even if you don’t plan to tender this workshop will help you look at how responsible business practice can support your marketing proposition. You will explore how a commitment to corporate social responsibility and sustainability can help you to build trust with your customers, suppliers and staff. The course aims to help you prepare for changes, opportunities and challenges and ensures compliant business practice.

Website DIY

Are you finding that building and maintaining your website is costly? Is it difficult that you don’t fully control it? Fed up of low quality free sites? Building your own quality website with your own domain name, personalised email addresses, content and design is comparatively straightforward - and cost effective – no programming is required. It does take some training and practice; our programme explains both the positives and negatives of this approach. We will show you the key steps - and a wealth of hints and tips – we have done this as a small business. Our programme is NOT for developers or programmers – our objective is to walk you through a step by step classroom programme that shows how the tools work - and the steps you need to follow. It’s not a “hands on” programme either – so you just need to be there when you book a place. Our approach also demonstrates software tools that deliver a responsive website for mobiles, tablets and PCs. At the end of the programme we will issue a step by step guide. This one day course is designed to make you aware of the capability that is available, how you can access it - and the costs involved. The cost of the programme is £75.00 for the day. Our business objective is not to build websites for you, it’s much better if you learn to do it for yourself. Our contact email for more information is admin@data-trainingworx.co.uk See our website https://data-trainingworx.co.uk for the details, terms/conditions and the booking process.

New Business Sales Technique

Everyone who starts or runs a successful business HAS to be able to make a sale to a customer. Whilst the digital world works for some types of products or services, sales skills are still required for many businesses. Tony Bridger, the course facilitator, has extensive sales experience and his last company sold packaged software to over 18 large corporate stock exchange companies, two governments - and he also undertook work for World Bank. In addition Tony has sold a range of software, retail goods as well as home improvement products. This programme will cover techniques for identifying customers, connecting and communicating with them via LinkedIn/Facebook, how retail and commercial buyers think, the use of question and answer and closing techniques, as well as after sale follow ups. The course is highly interactive, will provide you with techniques that you can use straightaway and is designed to bring your product and service “off the page”. It’s also fun – and a little humorous. The cost of the programme is £75.00 for the day.
