Lock in Your Bid: An Insider’s Guide to Bidding on Government Contracts @ Webinar
Sep 23 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Lock in Your Bid: An Insider’s Guide to Bidding on Government Contracts @ Webinar

Have you ever wondered how the Federal government decides who wins their business?

Are you a small business owner with some bidding experience, but want to know more about how to present to Government?

The Government of Canada is one of the largest purchasers of goods and services in Canada. Their needs are often diverse and may surprise you. Even if you have a small business they may be looking for the goods or services you offer!

Join us for a 90-minute interactive look behind the curtain into the process used by Federal government procurement officers to evaluate bids.

In this dynamic workshop you will experience the bidding process through the lens of a Government of Canada Contracting Officer/Technical Authority, and evaluate sample bids against criteria from a fictitious tender, or request for proposal.

We are delighted to host Daniel Sandoz from the Office of Small and Medium Enterprises (OSME) who will lead you in:

  • Applying best practices in creating your own bids so you stand out from the pack
  • Recognize common mistakes in bid submission so you avoid them in your submission
  • Identify how and when to ask questions when submitting a bid

If you want to get the inside scoop on how to improve your bid strategies and win government contracts, then this session is for you!

If you’re new to government procurement, then we recommend you watch this webinar recording prior to the session.

Sign up today and join us for this interactive WECafé where you’ll have the opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat, ask questions and gain industry insight in an open and welcoming environment.

The Power of Purpose: How to Elevate your Business by Uncovering your Social Purpose @ Webinar
Sep 29 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
The Power of Purpose: How to Elevate your Business by Uncovering your Social Purpose @ Webinar

A company’s purpose is the reason the business exists. Purpose is more than a mission or vision statement, it grounds your business, and conveys what your company stands for in its ethical, emotional and practical terms. It is the heartbeat of a company.

Integrating a social purpose will alter the course of your business by helping to attract and retain employees, enhance corporate culture, increase customer loyalty, and positively impact your bottom line. This can be key to your business as you recover from effects of the pandemic, and can be done without any financial investment.

Join us on September 29 as we host Christina Labarca and Sharon Davis, Founders of Giving Well, to uncover how a social purpose can become your company’s competitive advantage! We’ll discuss:

  • What is social purpose and why is it important?
  • How to uncover your company’s social purpose
  • Giving back through time, talent and treasure
  • Examples of businesses benefitting from a social purpose

September 29 | 10am to 11am PT | Free webinar
