WMMC is looking for 10 SMEs to participate in the pilot, with the full programme expected to cost up to £3000 when it officially launches in November this year.

Each pilot company will receive two free places, with at least one of those delegates being the employee who will be or is responsible for tendering within the business required to attend all three sessions on:

Thursday 24 August 2017
Thursday 31 August 2017

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
