DBOP Routes to Contract Success - Free Support for Durham Businesses

February 21st @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, Free

Are you a business based in Durham, interested in winning contracts?

About this Event

This FREE half day workshop will help you set a winning focus, equipping you with the right approach and insights to successfully win contracts and grow your business. It will cover:

  • How to get clear understanding of your market and how it works
  • How you can ‘be the right business’, even on ‘national’ contracts, whatever your size
  • Where to find opportunities, including lower-value work not put out to full tender
  • Practical tips and clear step-by-step guidance on how the tendering process works, how it is changing, and what you need to succeed
  • Secrets of Success – how businesses like yours have won.

The session will be led by Garry Stone of B2B North. The B2B North team has helped secure over £300m in contract wins for local businesses through their bid writing and training. As respected specialists, the team has built solid trust with public and private sector buyers, including Local Authorities, NEPO, Crown Commercial Services, Health Service Commissioning, and the Cabinet Office.


“I Just wanted to catch up after I attended your Masterclass in Spennymoor. I took on board everything you said, and we have since secured over £2.5m in contracts, including securing a place on Durham Council's latest Framework"

- Steadfast Group, Peterlee
