Webinar On-Demand: How will AI change bid writing?

'Thank you Blume for the excellent AI webinar earlier today. I have already written my first AI bid...Thanks for the confidence boost!"
'Fascinating webinar about how AI will change bid writing in the charity sector...Exhilaring and a bit terrifying in equal measure!'
In this webinar we heard from Gemma Rocyn Jones a senior strategy advisor at the National Lottery Community Fund, and from Sean Williams founder of AutogenAI, the world's leading AI bid writing engine.

Topics covered include:
  • How the National Lottery Community Fund is approaching AI
  • How AI can help bid-writing (including a short demonstration)
  • How to differentiate your bid if AI is generating them all
  • What to do about 'inherent bias'
  • How bid writers should adapt their skills and activities in response to AI
