How to write a great request for proposal AKA ensure you engage the right agency

Prerequisites

If you are a business owner, work in procurement, are a product owner or serve a client side role this is a session you won’t want to miss. 30 minutes of valuable takeaways and some honest agency side feedback on how and how not to ask people like us to deliver your next project.

Session details

Not everyone has the good fortune of having a procurement team or has even been through the process of commissioning a new website before. Even if you have, the prospect can be daunting, where do you start?

How do other organisations go about successfully communicating their requirements, how should I go about making agencies or developers aware that we have an opportunity? What steps should we got through in the process of evaluation. What does a great agency look like? Are there ways to reduce the time this all takes?

We receive RFPs, PQQs, ITTs all the time*. Some great, some not so good. In this session I will help provide a framework from which to base your next request for proposal so that you are better placed to engage the services of an agency that is right for you.

If you are a business owner, work in procurement, are a product owner or serve a client side role this is a session you won’t want to miss. 30 minutes of valuable takeaways and some honest agency side feedback on how and how not to ask people like us to deliver your next project. You'll even walk away with our template to give you a head start.

It WILL be light-hearted I assure you!

Drupal apprentices

The best people to train new developers are developers

The Drupal Apprenticeship Scheme will be running a London intake in March. If you are interested in hiring an apprentice or know someone who would benefit from the scheme please get in touch via the link below.

  • Created and run by experienced developers
  • Teaches core skills and best practice
  • Extensive support for businesses and teams

We are also really keen to hear from people who might be interested in mentoring, training and helping us to develop and review training materials to make sure they stay absolutely current and relevant.
