We are delighted to announce Matthew Walker’s appointment to the role of technical director.
Matthew is a 1st Class Honours graduate in Economics from Durham University. He specialised in economics of social policy, industrial organisation and business competition. After joining Executive Compass as a bid writer at the start of 2014, Matthew quickly developed a proficiency for producing high-quality, persuasive and evidence-based tender responses in partnership with bidder organisations of all sizes and in all sectors.
Over the years, Matthew’s role has evolved to incorporate support and guidance for the bid writing team, alongside developing and delivering CPD-certified bid writing training courses to organisations throughout the whole of the UK.
In his new role as technical director, Matthew will continue to work with our bid writers to set and maintain our exceptionally high standard of technical output. This will involve continuous communication with our team of reviewers and technical editors, as well as writers themselves, to continually refine our approach and, in turn, support our clients to achieve even greater success through the competitive tender process.
We have always been fully committed to continual improvement, with every piece of feedback from every source supporting us to cascade proven approaches across our whole team for the benefit of all our clients. Matthew’s appointment as technical director will allow us to accelerate this, creating and delivering bespoke development plans in partnership with each writer to support them in putting the latest best practice and winning approaches into practice in every tender.
All the team share Matthew’s excitement to work together to drive forward their ongoing development as trusted tender writing professionals, and we have every confidence that he will be very successful in his new role. Congratulations Matthew!
