It’s not just about the writing – maintaining collaboration and keeping everyone heading in the same direction is a massive challenge.

As grant-seekers, we rarely have line management authority over everyone in the bid development team.  This session will introduce two proven change management techniques that will help you to build and maintain a functioning team, that will take that bid ‘over the line’.  We’ll use a case study as the central learning process, then guide you on how to apply these tools in your own context.

Presenters:Bill Bruty and Anna Ferron Brooker
