Whether you need leadership for an essential project, short-term assistance with project recovery or additional management resource, Lightholm can help.
Lightholm works alongside your teams to: get a project back on track, coordinate a crucial deliverable or provide assurance and compliance for a business-critical development programme.
Flexibility is a given: a combination of on-site, off-site and number of days are determined to meet your specific needs.
Effective and efficient business processes won't deliver benefits unless they have buy-in from the team and the essential elements are well understood and routinely deployed.
Lightholm develops and delivers in-house interventions customised to your local processes and tailored for your audience. Services range from classroom training for teams to individual coaching and are built on experience gained from providing training in bid and project management mandates, tools and techniques to over 200 senior leaders, technical specialists, and business support staff.
Writing a winning proposal takes more than just a bright idea and a talented technical team. Lightholm can improve the chances of winning by helping with everything from a one-off review to bid team organisation and leadership.
Specialities include grant applications (Innovate UK and CEC H2020), competitive product and service offerings and public sector tenders.
Between them the European Commission and the UK Government provide several hundred million pounds of direct funding to companies developing new products and services. However, accessing this support is not straightforward.
Most funding schemes are oversubscribed by a factor of 8 (or more), and successfully delivering an efficient and effective grant-funded project can be a challenge.
So how do you know what’s out there, and is it worth investing time and effort?
Lightholm offers straightforward support and advice drawn from many years of leadership in successful grant proposals and projects. Services include initial consultation on feasibility and options, proposal development, application review, project set-up and delivery and advice on reporting and claims processes.
