Case Studies and Testimonials from clients
Everyone in The Winning Proposal team has decades of experience under their belt. Before joining us our people were the top Bid Managers, writers and consultants in the organisations they previously represented.
Why is this relevant? Because so often companies that claim to be able to help you bid better and win more haven’t always been round the block themselves.
If they haven’t faced the challenges that you are currently facing, in the markets and sectors in which you operate, how can true value be brought to your proposals?
We pride ourselves on the quality of our work and that fact that our clients ask us back in to help them time and time again.
But don’t just take our word for it!
Here’s what past and present – and in all likelihood future – clients are have already said about the proposal and presentation services we have delivered.
“In six weeks they helped grow our funnel by £65m, £31m of which became closed business within four months – a fantastic achievement!”
“These guys bring real rigour to developing top class, high value proposals. Working truly as part of our own team they have set the project plan and assisted in the definition of, and adherence to, the right process for the job in hand. The results have been outstanding.”
Chief Executive Officer, GTD Healthcare
“I just wanted to share with you that I just closed one out of my two sales deals that we discussed on the course. (Second is progressing well too). I am very grateful for all I have learned from you and I truly believe that your course was a significant aid in my sales process! A big thank you from Switzerland.”
Front Line Sales, Bloomberg Tradebook Europe
“I recently had the opportunity to speak at a sales performance conference, where more than 100 senior sales executives were attending. A really strong presentation was going to be essential to emphasise our technical innovation and leadership, whilst keeping the message easy to follow. Duncan Cranmer took my outline ideas for the presentation and created a version that was visually very impressive, in line with our company guidelines and thoroughly engaging for the audience. I experienced the engagement as extremely pleasant, helpful and insightful. A job well done!”
EMEA Project Director, Canon Europe
“For over 100 years benenden has been providing its flagship healthcare service to UK customers and members. As we now move to diversify and grow our business we sought a strategic business partner able to quickly understand our needs for sales development and to help define our top level plan for future sales success. Following a competitive selection process we commissioned Duncan Cranmer [of The Winning Proposal] to undertake a root and branch review of our sales function and recommend key improvements. In addition Duncan honed our sales messages and developed a new corporate sales presentation for us. Throughout Duncan impressed us with his thoughtfulness, professionalism and dedication. We now look excitedly ahead to taking the recommendations forward”.
