Winning Again: a game plan for incumbent suppliers

Wednesday 16 November 1.00pm AEDT


If your biggest customer put their business up for competition tomorrow, would you be ready? What story would you tell, and how effective would it be in helping you to win again?

When you win business through a competitive tender, chances are you'll need to pitch again to retain it. And this is never easy.

Incumbent suppliers face some unique challenges in winning again. And according to sources in procurement, only 50% end up being successful - even those who are doing a good job are still vulnerable to being replaced by a competitor.

Why does this happen, and what can you do about it?

This webinar is exclusively for companies that hold large corporate and government contracts that are subject to renewal or re-tender. Over 45 minutes, including time for Q&A, you will discover:

  • How customer retention affects margin and profit growth
  • Why customers are psychologically wired to seek other options, even when they are happy with your performance
  • Three reasons why incumbents are more at risk than we think
  • What "clear winners" do to retain and grown their major accounts, so you can do it too, and
  • The cultural and strategic challenges you'll need to make to boost your chances of winning again
