Game changing tender writing that shows your value

I’m Kristine Daw, your go-to tender professional. I write tenders for small to medium businesses and social enterprises. I also train budding tender writers to compose contract-winning proposals through my Courses. Tender writing is not as hard as it looks. It’s not as nail-bitingly complicated and confusing as you think.

The truth? Successful tenders are not about your business.

The best tenders are all about the benefits, value and solutions you bring to your client. And when you’re pitching against big-name competitors, the way you package all of that up in an easy-to-read proposal is how you stand out from the crowd.

When you nail that must-win tender, it leads to further growth, opportunities and innovation and keeps your doors open.  I know because I’ve helped thousands of Australian businesses secure tenders in my 20 years of tender writing and training.

Now, it’s your turn.


“Hi, just wanting to thank you for the amazing business proposal you prepared for us in such a short timeframe.

We are so pleased that we decided to work with you.

We had heard some pretty amazing things about you and your work and now know they are all true.”

Michelle McCall | Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation

“I don’t need a tender writer.” If you had asked me a year ago, that’s what I would’ve told you. If you were to ask me now I would tell you, hands-down, that I don’t need just any tender writer; I need Kristine Daw from Dawtek.

I talked to a number of companies when I made the foray into outsourcing. They were five to seven times more expensive than Kristine. They were clearly going to make me do all the work and then shove me to their junior intern to manage.

By comparison, Kristine was a dream to work with. She was proactive and personable and she was our direct contact the whole way through. She went above and beyond and did much more than she was paid for. She made the process simple and easy. Most importantly, we have had 100% success rate with her and I’m excited to work with Kristine on many more tenders in future.”

Christine Clarke | Studio 55

Working with Kristine was (and is) amazing. She ‘got’ us and our organisational context and our values so quickly, it was like she had known us for years! Kristine’s ability to very quickly ascertain the context of what we were writing about and what the key points of difference were that would help set us in front of competing panelists was insightful, fast, strategic and straight to the point.

Donna Cross | Director & General Manager, Culturally Directed Care Solutions (CDCS)

“Kristine was referred to us as the best in the business, and wow they were right! Her knowledge, professionalism and nothing is too much trouble attitude is outstanding. Kristine went above and beyond for us, successfully winning us our first ever tender.

I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for our business in a short period of time!!”
