"Our company had loads of gaps in knowledge when it came to public sector. The CIO Surgery and workshop helped not only identify these gaps but also provided guidance with how to fix them. Jos and Chris were very transparent throughout the session; they gave us honest feedback and made things very simple for us. They realised that we are a company hungry for success and gave us ample information start our public sector journey.”
Depending on your specific needs and target market – we’d love to chat in more depth about how we can tailor the session to your public sector procurement strategy! – we’ll bring onboard the right strategic adviser for you.
