I’ve won work and want to take the next steps for growth

We’ll help you grow

First of all – well done for securing work! Our experience as small business owners means that we’ve been where you are now and we know how daunting breaking into the public sector can seem: trying to find work, win work and keep it can be exhausting and often demoralising if you haven’t got the tools in place to help. So, our mission is to use our combined decades of expertise to help your organisation succeed in winning business because in doing so, we create a level playing field that allows all businesses to thrive.

Your journey – your way

The Go4Growth programme is completely free, tailored to you and includes no time commitments. You’ll get access to regular training sessions on a wide range of topics, from issues such as understanding the principles and regulations surrounding procurement, to advice on becoming carbon net zero and developing your social value narrative. You’ll also have access to a wealth of content, video ‘how tos’ and templates - all completely free of charge.

Whether you’re a micro business, SME or VCSE, we know you’ll have different skills, experience and requirements and so we fully tailor and personalise our time with you. We won’t leave you until you’re completely confident that you and your teams are ready to continue on your procurement journey. And even then, we’ll still be on hand to offer advice and support anytime you need it, all completely free of charge.

Social Value for Procurement & Commissioners

18 July 2024, 9:30 AM

A journey through social value for procurement, looking at how to table it well in tenders and how to ensure that you get what you ask for and avoid over promises from the market. We'll take a look at how social value can be contract managed and measured using social meaurement as well as financial.

At this workshop we'll also give insights into marketplace feedback on the challenges and opportunities of social value, discussing how we can maximise social impact and harness the talent and capability of the market.

We'll include carbon reduction and sustainability as part of the Social Value discussion.

Finding Opportunities in the Public Sector

17 September 2024, 10:00 AM

Providers often tell us that it can be really difficult to find the right opportunities in the public sector. There are lots of portals and different search engines so knowing where to start can be a challenge in its own right.

At this workshop, Lauren from Go4Growth will give an overview of who the public sector is, what they buy and importantly, how they buy goods and services.

We'll go through some of the main portals to show you which portals are used in what geographical areas or by which public sector organisations.

We will also cover how to search using Contracts Finder, the free government-hosted database of public sector opportunities as well as the Find A Tender Service. We'll also take a look forward to the new regulations and what will change in relation to advertising opportunities

In addition, we'll cover some of the other ways that the public sector engages with the provider marketplace discussing things like Meet the Buyer events and why they can be a great place for providers to build relationships with potential customers and how social media is beginning to change how the public sector advertises opportunities.

As always there will be lots of time for questions and discussion and we hope to see lots of providers from all sectors come and join us.
