Lets not beat around the bush. 2017 has been a fantastic year for team Bid and Research and importantly for our customers. The companies we work with have won contracts bid and small nationally and internationally ranging from thousands to Millions. For us that’s what it is all about WINNING. there is absolutely zero fun in just taking part. We are in the business of winning.
We have seen the team significantly grow, we have met some great new companies, we have moved to a bigger office and we continue to build with optimism for the future.
The Practical bit…
We all know the phrase
“you are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with”
well this year along with working our backsides off day and night we have really put this in to action investing more time and effort with our non exec and actively sourcing mentoring from those that have been there and done it. This doesn’t mean trying to make friends with every big wig in town. Its as simple as reading books by some of the most successful people in history, watching youtube videos, listening to podcasts, attending conferences and just asking. We have had mentoring sessions with people well out of our league through a bit of flattery and an offer of lunch- “Hi ____, I really admire _____ and the way you _____. It would be great to get your view on our marketing/business/growth plan etc.is there a day i could take you for lunch to get your opinion on our plans?”
It really does work. This year personal development has been off the scale and we have plans to push it even further in 2018.
What has made your year a success and what business challenges do you anticipate in 2018?
Have a great festive break and we look forward to supporting even more of you in 2018. Cheers *raises glass*
