'Bid Writing for Project Managers is an excellent introduction to the process of writing a competitive bid or proposal for new business...full of good sense delivered in an easy, persuasive and authoritative style. You feel that the author (David Cleden) is a master of the craft about which he writes, rather than a self-professed business guru writing in his ivory tower about how he thinks things ought to be. I would recommend Bid Writing for Project Managers to anyone who has the unenviable responsibility of managing preparation of a bid, and to all project managers who are required to contribute to a proposal, especially if they're likely to be tasked with delivering the project when the bid is won!' - Mark Pillatt, Senior Project Manager, WTG Technologies Limited 'An insightful study into how a disciplined approach to bid writing will not only prevent project failure, but will dramatically increase the likelihood of project success.' - Lee Hendricks, Sales and Marketing Director, SunGard Public Sector
