Sim Ratcliffe, I am an experienced bid and business development specialist with over 10 years' experience, I currently work for a global law firm managing competitive tenders for the public and private sectors, ensuring that best practice is followed.
I joined APMP nearly 5 years ago to further my abilities in bidding and to meet people that understood the work I do. I have benefit from the network of kind and knowledgeable people that I have met during this time. In 2019 I was shortlisted for the APMP Bid Excellence award, which was a great honour.
I heard about the mentoring scheme in 2019 and decided to apply to be a mentor so that I could assist like minded people in our profession and hopefully give back some of the help and support I have received. I was delighted to be included in the first cohort in February 2020, receiving training from Jackie Jenks of Leapfrog Mountain to enable me to mentor APMP members.
