CF.APMP - Treasurer

Did you know that saying “So what?” is actually a critical analytical skill in bidding? As soon as I found this out I knew it was the career for me. Now I have over 18 years of experience across multiple industries, geographies, and scales of business.

As a consultant at BidCraft, I’m responsible for helping companies achieve their growth targets by optimising their bidding capability - working with them to craft their capability, pursue the right deals, and win. I enjoy developing new tools, techniques, and approaches - challenging the ‘but that’s how we’ve always done it’ inertia you find wherever you go.

APMP is a relatively new world for me, passing Foundation slightly late in my career in 2017. I presented at the first UK conference I attended (and had a small role in making happen), which was a blast. The community and shared therapy of the network hooked me immediately, and now I am proud to take up the Treasurer role. I hope to contribute to the development of our profession any way I can. And I am determined to pass Practitioner before I become the oldest person to do so…
