Chris Street is a value expert, an experienced analyst within the aerospace and defense sector. He can be found driving the implementation of Position-to-Win and Value-Based Pricing across Thales UK with occasional cameos in Paris. He earned his Business Studies at the University of Brighton. 

In this episode, Chris shares his expertise when it comes to Business to the Government  (B2G) procurement process. He will also give us an overview of the procurement process every government sector goes through and use that knowledge to gain an unfair advantage against competitors in a bid to win contracts.

“Always understand your competition, understand what makes them different, what makes them special, but then understand what value you're bringing and what makes you special as well. If you don't understand the competitive environment, you've got no way of being able to articulate why you're different, what makes you special.”

Key Takeaway: 

“Everyone thinks their own technical features are unique and amazing, but ultimately if your competitors are doing the same thing, you've got no differentiation, you've got no ability to grab someone at a premium. So my advice is, keep an eye on what those competitors are up to. Make sure that you're staying one step ahead.” - Chris Street
