Catch up on our webinar Levelling Up: Preparing for Round 3

Catch up on our webinar - ‘Levelling Up: Preparing For Round 3’ - held on Tuesday 13th June and featuring Lewisham Council.

Watch here

For some councils, the third round of Levelling Up later this year will be an opportunity to improve or rethink previously unsuccessful bids. For others, it will be their first time applying.

Whatever your situation, it is never too early to start planning. This webinar will help you to ensure, whatever your state of readiness, you’re setting your bids up for success in the next round.

The team at Mutual Ventures has learned a lot from supporting a range of successful bids in rounds one and two. In this free session, Mutual Ventures' Chief Executive Andrew Laird will be joined by John Bennett (Head of Economy, Jobs and Partnerships at Lewisham Council) and Mark Bandalli (Managing Consultant at Mutual Ventures) to share some of that with you, including:

  • Why it’s important to properly assess your investment options through a Theory of Change process before launching into bid writing – the sooner this can be done the better.

  • Why early engagement with stakeholders ahead of the bidding window is essential – this always takes longer than you think!

  • The importance of having a clear bid delivery plan in place ahead of the bidding window to ensure you have the time, capability, and capacity to develop a quality bid.
