What is this programme all about?
Every year, public sector organisations – government departments, local councils and other agencies – spend more than £2 billion on a massive cross section of products and services.
Whilst many people still believe that it is only the largest businesses that can win public sector contracts, this is far from the case. Indeed, public sector buyers actively encourage small businesses to bid for contracts.
The core aim of the Selling to the Public Sector Programme is therefore to highlight how accessible public sector sales opportunities are for small businesses in Northern Ireland ….and to show participant businesses how to move from talking about targeting public sector customers to actually doing it.
What does the programme involve?
Due to ongoing restrictions relating to travel and social interaction, both workshops and one to one mentoring will be provided virtually using Zoom software.
