Bid Writing


Jon Scott started HALO Bid Writing in 2012. Uniquely among bid writers, he has worked as a journalist, PR copywriter and senior operational manager (in prisons) within both the public and private sectors. HALO has worked with: 3M Babcock Balfour Beatty Boeing Bombardier Carillion Dragados G4S Interserve Mace NHS Tata HALO's areas of expertise: justice (especially prisons, electronic tagging), rail (including HS2, OLE, rolling stock), power, construction. In between bids, Jon occasionally writes about prisons as a freelance journalist. Here's an example from the London Evening Standard:

Getting the best people to answer the question

HALO uses nimble journalistic interview techniques. This makes expert input from SMEs as fast and painless as possible. The result? We make it more likely that the right person answers the question. OK, so it sounds silly. But too often, the best brains of a company do not contribute to the bid process. Chances are, your frontline stars are heavily focused on the day job, or fear getting sucked into the maelstrom of the bid process. And if they do contribute, it's sometimes not until Red Review - by which time it can be too late to make fundamental changes. And yet the best proposals require the best input. HALO Bid Writing excels at interviewing busy people. We ask the right questions, we grasp concepts quickly, and we're as flexible as high-powered corporate life demands. Can't speak until midnight? No problem. Need to meet at a cafe on the South Bank? Delighted. Anything, as long as we get the best person to answer the question - and, in doing so, maximise your chance of success.
