How to bid and win profitable work                        Peter Searle

Peter Searle - Searle Management Consulting

Construction is like no other sector. It is highly fragmented and impacted severely by economic cycles. Every project is unique in terms of the people working on it and the location. Yet despite these features, clients tender the work and award it to the lowest bidder, which leads to slender margins all round. This talk will explain a proven method of how to secure only work which is profitable.

Florence Hubert - Bank of England Deputy Agent for Central Southern England
