OGUK’s commitment to ensuring the recovery of the UK’s hard-pressed oil and gas supply chain continues with a webinar aimed at providing small to medium enterprises (SMEs) with top tips for successful tendering.
Taking place online on Wednesday 30 September, the free event aims to help SMEs wishing to improve how they bid to supply goods or services to a potential buyer and learn from experts in the field.
Emily Taylor, OGUK’s continuous improvement manager, said:
“Feedback from participants in our latest SME forum revealed there’s a strong demand for expert advice on tendering and what companies can do to continuously improve their business.
“While SMEs are a vital sector of our world-class supply chain and the lifeblood of innovation and opportunity, many are in a fragile position and our aim is give them a deeper insight of what customers look for from a potential supplier during the tendering process.
“Experts speaking at the webinar include representatives from the operator, SME, legal and commercial communities who will each outline what good practice looks like from their individual perspectives.”
Industry experts speaking at the event which starts at 9.30 am – 11.00 am include:
- Catriona Stevenson, Chair of the OGUK SME Forum and Business Manager, Ecosse IP Ltd
- Anne Farr, Managing Director, Rothera Group Ltd
- Steve Mitchellhill, Contract specialist, Mitchelhill Consulting
- Edward Hughes, Head of Contracts & Procurement, INEOS
- Chris West, Chief Operating Officer, Optimus
Following the webinar which is open to both OGUK members and non-members, online delegates will have the opportunity to participate in a panel session and learn about how they can make the best of the opportunities ahead.
