Onto the Page is a Leeds-based agency offering bid consultancy, bid training, knowledge management and business writing services to organisations of all sizes. Our model is based on the recognition that you’re the experts in your field, but that you might just need some help when it comes to getting that expertise out of your team and ‘onto the page’.
We work with clients in the public, private and third sectors, helping them to win contracts which often open the door to larger opportunities, increased turnover and profitability, more staff, improved reputation and business processes.
Managing Director Emma Jaques founded Onto the Page in 2008 to help companies of all shapes and sizes navigate the pitfalls and frustrations of tendering more smoothly.
Over the past 12 years we’ve steadily grown an agile, highly-skilled team committed to professional and personal development – everyone in our bid team is a member of our professional body, the Association of Proposal Management Professionals. We’ve built a thorough understanding of the challenges facing bidders, using this knowledge to develop and update our service provision.
Crafting winning bid and tender responses is part art, part science – and we’re out-and-out specialists – with a well-deserved reputation for excellence and a bid win rate of over 85%.
With a wealth of experience gained over 25 years of leading, managing and writing successful bids, Emma is perfectly placed to provide end-to-end support for companies of all sizes in bidding to the public, private and third sectors. Not only do our clients also benefit from her expertise through the bid skills and knowledge management training sessions she delivers, but she has provided invaluable insights for a wider audience through the two published books she’s written on bidding best practice, The Winning Bid and Bid Management.
“There’s no better feeling than supporting a client through what can be a very challenging process and delivering a winning result for them.”
Sarah’s experience in managing and writing both public and private sector bids for clients across a wide variety of industries means she’s an expert in providing a full range of bid support to clients of all shapes and sizes. The bidding workshops and bespoke training sessions she delivers help clients to get ‘bid ready’ and give them the tools to write winning bids. And because she manages our Quality Management System and continuous improvement programme, she’s the perfect person to advise our clients on their own quality processes.
“I find it really satisfying helping to open doors for clients who’ve been put off bidding in the past by giving them the skills and confidence to create the best bid they can.”
Raj’s extensive experience within project management provides her with an outstanding commercial awareness, which she places at the forefront when writing bids. With an academic background in linguistics, Raj provides a superb insight into the impact of the written word and uses this to write compelling bid responses on behalf of our clients.
“I really enjoy working with clients to collect and include those crucial pieces of information that will turn their compliant bids into winning bids’’.
