Maybe you are competing against larger companies who have professional in-house tender teams.
Maybe hiring a tender consultant is more than your budget will allow.
Or maybe you are new to the tender writing or bid management career track and you are looking for some guidance in improving your skills.
How to Tender: Tendering for the First Time
Have you never tendered before and been invited to one of these processes?
- RFT (Request for Tender)
- RFP (Request for Proposal)
- RFQ (Request for Quote)
- RFI (Request for Information)
- EOI (Expression of Interest)
Responding means reviewing large amounts of documents, observing restrictions on word counts or page limits, writing to the evaluation criteria, ensuring you are protecting your business in the contract and working to strict deadlines. The tendering process can feel daunting, frustrating, and time-consuming. There is help available.
Book a call with me today and I will talk you through the process so you know where to start, how to create a professional response, and how to quickly get to the finish line.
Coaching for Tender and Proposal Consultants
Thinking about becoming a tender consultant or bid manager? Or need more skills in proposal writing? Maybe you are new to the profession or feel that your tender consulting and bid management processes could be more effective.
I have 25 years’ experience tendering both working in corporate tender teams (including professional services, technology and oil and gas) and then running my own successful tender writing business. Corporate bid teams call on me when they need expert advice or a safe pair of hands who they can bring into their team at the last minute. I provide quality reviews and expertise for other tender consultants when some heavy lifting is needed on bids for their clients. I have helped consultants build and retain clients through high quality tenders and consistent results.
I have worked with clients from all over the world and managed multi-country bid teams.
