The Leeds Cross Government SME Roadshow is a great opportunity for SMEs in Yorkshire and beyond to hear directly from Central Government (Department for Work and Pensions, Ministry of Justice, Crown Commercial Service), NHS (Department of Health, NHS England, NHS Digital) and local government (Leeds City Council) about the opportunities to sell to the public sector.
You’ll hear about what organisations based in Yorkshire are looking to buy, what they expect from their suppliers and about government’s commitment to see more of its business won by SMEs.
You’ll also hear from an SME who has successfully sold to government and who is now advising them how to get more of their business done with SMEs.
It is a chance to meet the people who make purchasing decisions, find out how you can find opportunities and what you can expect when you bid for a contract and after you’ve won it, and also find out about future opportunities.
Confirmed speakers include:
• Emma Jones - SME Crown Representative • Liz Freeman - Category Specialist, Crown Commercial Service • Elizabeth Vega - SME Panel member and supplier to government (Informed Solutions) • Stephen Tokely - Small Business Policy Team, Crown Commercial Service and representatives from DWP, Ministry of Justice and Leeds City Council.
