Today we celebrate our first birthday! We launched BBM on the 25th of January 2021 with no clients and no projects. One year later we have 12 active clients with a large amount of repeat business. We have completed 27 projects and expanded our sectors to include aggregates handling and coal, business coaching, commercial cleaning & hygiene, education, environmental, fire and security, habitat restoration & landscaping, lottery funding, policing, government agencies and local bodies, and water and waste-water. In addition, we reached our first year target by the tenth month!
Thank you to all of our clients, contacts and connections for your support over the past year. We look forward to working with you all again. So, roll on Year Two, we’re very excited to see what it will bring
This week at BBM, we are embarking on a major grant submission for a charity that works both proactively and reactively to save lives on our roads. It's an exciting prospect and along with our suite of services, demonstrates that we are continuously expanding and creating new spaces to work in. Along with our next Bid & Tender Workshop (24th Feb), please pop along to our services page to see how we could help your business or organisation.
Due to the current uncertainty regarding the new Omicron variant, we have postponed our in-person January workshop by one month to February. This will allow time to understand how the situation is developing. You can of course, still book on our website and via the following link. If you have already booked, your details have been transferred to the new date of 24th February and you'll receive an email soon. Many thanks and please everyone keep safe!

News just in of another successful major pre-qualification outcome for a highly valued client of BBM! We managed the bid process and worked collaboratively with their team to draft and write responses that assured a high degree of confidence. This meant the desired result was achieved in two out of the three lots we submitted (actually the lots our client wanted). We cleared our client through to the next stage with the best chance of success in this highly desirable multi-year contract!
