Believe it or not, that question is one of the most common that comes my way in this line of work. So many people new to the world of tenders feel overwhelmed and that’s completely understandable. I’ve been writing tenders for over 15 years now and there’s no better feeling than guiding someone through the process and seeing the impact that a tender win has on their business.

So, can someone completely new to the tender space learn how to write a winning tender?

 Yes! And I have many years’ worth of proof to back that answer up. Here’s the reality of the situation – I have worked with organisations of all sizes over the years: from AGL to Boral and Headspace and even Government departments. These companies have the budget to engage my services but many businesses out there either don’t or they prefer to be more hands-on with their tender submissions for whatever reason. That said, allow me to open up my vault and share some facts with you about our online tender course.


#1: I’ve spent countless hours creating this content

 I haven’t just taken a little bit of this and a little bit of that and combined it into an online course. I’ve spent numerous hours honing and putting together this content so that it provides you with as much value for money as possible in the form of useful content. The type of content that is easily digestible and will help you with your next tender submission. I’ve also included tons of examples that you’ll have on-hand and can easily tweak and customise for your own tender. I’m talking about real-world examples that have enabled my clients to win tenders they once only dreamed of!


#2: It’s raining downloads and editable tools!

 Having purchased my fair share of online courses in the past, I know what kind of content is useful to people. And that’s why I knew from the very beginning of this journey that creating worthwhile downloads and tools that are easy to use, would form an important part of my online tender course. There are over 18 documents included for you to download and then tailor for your business. The course is also updated on a regular basis so you know you’re accessing and working with current information.


#3: You benefit from personalised support

 You read that line correctly. While I love working with organisations and one-on-one with people, I’m very passionate about ensuring knowledge and information about tenders is accessible to businesses with budgets of all sizes. And that’s why I ensure that I’m readily available to those who invest in the course. Regardless of your query, I am only one quick message away and I pride myself on being right there with you as you embark on learning more about creating successful tenders.


#4: Learn how to really sell your business

 When you’ve been writing tenders as long as I have, you pick-up a heap of secrets along the way in terms of what really works in relation to selling your business and wowing your clients. You’d be surprised at how sometimes, it’s those finer details or small things you might not even think about that can make all the difference to your submission. I’ve really lifted the lid on information that has taken me over 15 years of working in the industry to gather and for good reason too: I want to see you succeed and get excited about your next tender submission!
