- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
The year 2017 heralds a commercial landscape in the UK unlike any that has gone before. Politically, Brexit and the triggering of Article 50 dominates, while a question mark over Scottish independence, numerous high profile general elections at home and on the continent and the first year of a Trump Presidency threatening US domestic stability.
The technological pace of change continues to accelerate at a dizzying rate, with profound implications for the way we work and communicate. On-demand delivery, virtual reality, and Internet-connected-everything will continue to make life easier – and riskier – for big business.
Against this backdrop, business winning is becoming increasingly competitive. The public procurement of goods and services now accounts for up to 16% of GDP and the proposal and bid management profession continues to undergo significant and rapid development to meet industry needs.
APMP’s 2017 UK Conference will ask how we can ensure that the arts and science of business capture is future-proofed. The definitive event for bid and proposal management professionals, attendees will have the opportunity to hear expert opinion, share their own experiences and take away best practice tools and techniques that will support continued bid excellence within this ‘Brave New World’.
