The secrets to writing a winning tender!

are you tired of losing tenders?

Do you feel overwhelmed by the tender process?

Are you tired of working every night writing your tender submission?

No matter what kind of tender help you need, I’m your go-to tender professional.  From developing your tender strategy and writing your tender response, to tender training and developing supporting tender documents, with my help, you have the greatest chance of success.

Since starting Dawtek nearly 20 years ago, I have worked with some wonderful companies across Australia.  For me it isn’t about the type of organisation you are – it’s about how your company fits the tender or project we are going to work on together. I don’t like writing tenders for companies when I don’t believe they have a decent chance of being shortlisted.  I don’t like wasting your time or money.  From the get-go, it has always been my policy to be upfront about the tender process.

I specialise in working with small to medium businesses. As a small business myself, I understand the hurdles and the difficulties in writing tenders that win. Working with me, you get 20 years of tender writing experience with all the tools and resources needed to writing that winning tender.

My tender experience encompasses many industries, some of these are.

  • Job Network Services
  • Disability Services
  • Not-for-Profit Organisations
  • Recruitment and Personnel
  • Accounting and Audit Services
  • Transportation and Logistics
  • Security Services Personnel
  • Drug and Alcohol Testing
  • Medical Equipment and Safety Supplies
  • Health and Nursing Services
  • Environmental Services
  • Information Technology
  • Graphic Design
  • Event Management
  • Construction
  • Cleaning and Facilities Management Services
Having never advertised my business, the majority of my work comes from returning clients and referrals, which is a testament to the quality of work I produce. If you’d like more time to work on your business and goals, then get in touch!  I can’t wait to see what we can produce together.

“Thank you very much for your informative 1:1 tender writing training session this morning.

Your professional advice, guidance, and support along with the detailed provision of tools and templates to prepare my own personalised tender document are so greatly appreciated.

I can see the advantages and usefulness of today’s session and the tender document and look forward to utilising this in my future business proposals/appraisal.

I highly recommend the services of you and Dawtek to anyone interested in the pursuit of advancing their business prospects.

“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 and 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!!”

Lisa Soliman  –  Sleek Print Management Pty Ltd

“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

“Thank you for your fabulous support and effort in meeting the demands Boral and I have asked of you.  For our 1Boral Health and Safety Management System project we employed three technical writing organisations to achieve our compressed timeframe. Of these, Dawtek was without hesitation the most professional in its ability to combine information, research, communicate and deliver a professional product on time.”

Stuart Clark, Manager OHS Systems & Support, Boral Limited |

“We have nothing but praise for the highly professional tenders which Dawtek has prepared for us. Kristine and her team have a thorough understanding of how the tender system works; a good knowledge and understanding of many of the entities we tender to; and the ability to ‘fill in’ areas within the tenders that we do not understand.”

Peter Rayner, Marketing Manager Ultra Health

“I went to the Dawtek tender writing workshop last week – it was fantastic and I’ve picked up a lot of things we need to do to improve our tenders. It was completely worthwhile and we will be working with Dawtek on future tenders.”

Jodie Mitchell (B.Arch, MAACAI), Director / Principal Heritage Consultant, Alpha Archaeology Pty Ltd

“Finding Dawtek was a godsend for me and for Colbrow. Prior to being introduced to Kristine, I was writing all the tenders for our organisation with limited success as it is often difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff when you are writing about your own business. Kristine is professional, thorough, thoughtful, not to mention successful! Since engaging Kristine’s services, we have won 4 out of 5 contracts that we tendered for. I won’t be tendering without Dawtek’s help again.”

Christina Decker – CEO Colbrow
