The Selling to the Public Sector programme, is now drawing to a close and the final FREE seminars are being arranged during May to enable the local Leicester-based* SMEs and Social Enterprises that haven’t yet been able to access the programme, receive some support to improve their ability to sell their products and services to the Public Sector.
SMEs often face a number of barriers which prevent them from competing successfully for lucrative public sector contracts; this project was implemented to address this problem and help some Leicester-based SMEs to start bidding for and winning some of these contracts.
However, with the programme now nearly at an end, there are only a few final spaces available on the last seminars. If you wish to attend these seminars and take advantage of the free support available, please get in touch with Michael Barrows at Mustard Plus (contact details below) immediately to book a place.
