Ultimately, an RFP is a means to an end; it is a negotiation tactic through which business is won. Unfortunately, what really matters in the response process is often ignored. In this session, Hamish will highlight the opportunity to increase your win rate by applying a unique framework to the response process that includes focusing on the buyer, adopting a solutions-oriented approach and crafting a compelling story.
