Bidding and Tendering Support

Since 2004 Hollin have been providing consulting services to numerous clients via bespoke behaviour-based support for all aspects of business.

Successful leaders have a comprehensive understanding of their influence on those around them. This is a learned skill, and can be taught to all leaders in any part of an organisation. Using tools and techniques developed over the past 100 years, it is possible to take a scientific approach to human behaviour and purposefully create the environment to achieve the results you want.

Our courses have been used on successful UK programmes and projects such as the West Coast Route Modernisation, London Underground’s Station Projects programme (since 2011), United Utilities’ capital programme (since 2005), and Scottish Water’s capital programme (since 2004), among others. All delivered high-profile, award-winning projects.

UK organisations we have supported include: Bechtel, Transport for London, Network Rail, Arcadis, Eight2O, Costain, Volvo, Laing O’Rourke, Balfour Beatty, Vinci, Taylor Woodrow, Clancy Docwra, Torrent Trackside, Gatwick Airport, Atkins, Sabic, Celanese, Morgan Sindall, Infrasig, Sellafield, Interserve, Scottish Police, Scottish Water, Intel and United Utilities.

Hollin have assisted a number of tenderers bidding work packages for HS2, including the enabling works contract bids, a number of design bids, and the major works contract bids.

Our clients have all topped the ‘behavioural assessment scores’ on their bids and significantly, BBV won the Major Works N1 and N2 contracts.

We have been providing behavioural support for major clients bidding work in the highways, rail, nuclear and water industries since 2012. In the last 24 months, the win rate of the clients we assisted has been over 80%. We specialise in supporting companies who have been asked to include a behavioural element into their bid submissions.

“Lynn was a key member of our bid team. Her ability to distil information down to what is important and summarise what the client is asking for is simply outstanding. She also worked with our team to produce some of our tender responses; their feedback is that she challenged them to think in a different way and this delivered a far better response and this was confirmed by the review team. I would be delighted to work with Lynn in our team again. Her ability to challenge in a constructive manner and provide feedback in a way that is received and acted on is unique and highly valuable.”
