Bio: Chris and Andrew have over thirty years’ experience between them at Aviva and joined the Aviva Life Bids team in 2010 and 2011 respectively as Proposal Writers, before becoming Bid Managers. Both are CPP qualified and over the years on the team have successfully managed multi-million pound deals, helping Aviva to secure and retain business with partners that include banks and retail services.


In an ever-evolving bidding world, sometimes the need to do things a little bit different can make the difference between a highly efficient bid team and an average one.

Chris Hopkins and Andrew Brookes, Bid Managers within the Aviva Life Bids & Tenders team, facilitate an interactive session discussing bidding topics, sharing their own experiences and inviting delegates to join the debate. Topics will focus on situations that have required things to be done differently:

  • Qualifying the right opportunities
  • Adapting to current trends
  • Bidding in a digital world
  • Effective use of technology
  • Sharpening the proposal pencil
  • Pro-active succession planning

Takeaway: Knowledge and experiences shared can be put into practice back in the workplace.
