About two thousand years ago, Aristotle wrote Rhetoric, a seminal work of philosophy, which analysed the use of language as a tool to develop and deliver a persuasive argument.
“What is the main reason a bid fails to win?”
This is the question we are asked more than any other and it is one for which, on the face of it, there is a simple answer. Our response is that a bid fails to win because it does not convince the reader.

Then you must be able to prove it.
