Hello to clients of UK Bid Writer, past and present.

As you may know, I have been gradually reducing my hours at UK Bid Writer over the last few years, to focus on other business interests, move from Birmingham to Cumbria and make a few other life changes.

Well, the time has now come for me to officially retire from bid writing!

UK Bid Writer will therefore cease taking on new clients and new work from existing clients effective immediately.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your business over the last 10+ years. And not just business! I have built up some really good working relationships over this time. We have had some laughs, some tears (of joy following a win, I hasten to add!), some good gossip and some ‘lively debates’!

I have learned so much about so many different sectors and business types. It has been my honour to help all of you develop and grow your businesses, creating new jobs, developing new technologies, embedding that all important ‘social value’ into your own local communities, just by being there.

It has been an absolute joy to swipe contracts out from under the ‘big players’ and get them into the hands of SMEs 😀

What’s next for me?

Honestly, I’m not yet sure! Still figuring it out.

For the time being, I’ll leave my ‘legacy’ stuff accessible – the podcast, videos and written resources I’ve put up over the years – with a view to shutting all that down later this year or early next.

(Shouldn’t need to be said, but I continue to assert and retain full copyright over all of my content; it’s not there for the taking.)

What about your stuff?

All existing Non-Disclosure Agreements remain in place. If you would like me to sign any additional NDAs to cover the future, please just let me know and I will be happy to.

If there are any past bids, policies, other documents and bits and bobs that I have been keeping on your behalf and you would like access to them, I will be setting up a secure, cloud-based system for you to do that. I haven’t got the details on that just yet so if you need them sharpish, let me know and I can do it manually.

Likewise for any other data you would like deleted. I will ensure I follow all regulations and best practice in line with the Data Protection Act.

While I won’t be taking on new work, I know some of you might want some form of ‘bid library’ or just a few bits of bid content you can use or pass on to a new bid writer in the future. Please do give me a shout and we can figure out together what you need and how I can help. I’m happy to either do that kind of ‘wrap up’ work myself or help you find someone else – whichever works best for you.

And that’s it
