  • Have a role where you need to write tenders
  • Want to bring tender writing in house and give outsourcing the flick
  • Are serious about streamlining your tender processes
  • Don’t want to waste time, money and energy on submissions that don’t win

Our tender training courses equip you with the essential knowledge and practical skills to give your tenders the winning edge over your competitors. Our courses include:

At Dawtek, our courses are just like having a virtual team of Tender experts who have your back, taking the jargon and complexities out of tenders, and giving you the tools and frameworks for tender success.

When You’re Winging It On Your Own, Tender Writing Hurts.

It’s frustrating, disheartening and a time drain. You’re never really sure what the heck you’re supposed to actually write. Sound familiar?

You could keep…

  • Struggling to write tenders that miss the mark
  • Outsourcing to tender writers who just don’t get your business
  • Pouring thousands of dollars into expensive consultants who can’t guarantee you success
  • Scratching your head, staring at a blank screen for hours to not even be shortlisted
  • Or you could learn tender writing with me and master your tenders in just 12 weeks.

Because all that wasted cash, time and stress lost over tenders that don’t even make the shortlist? It burns.

I know you've still got questions

So I’ve put all the answers here:

A key part of tendering is planning, so if you haven’t started your business yet then you can enrol. You can commence this course and use the strategies to win new business and then adapt the information for your business.

Typically, this course can be completed over a 12 week period, with email prompts along the way. There’s no pressure to stick to this format. You can take it at your own pace and go back and re-visit the information at any time.

When you sign up, you get lifetime access to all the templates and information because I know that life and business sometimes gets in the way!

Being a business owner, I know you don’t have a lot of time, which is why I’ve broken the Course into bite-sized chunks. Ideally you should allow 2-3 hours a week to digest the course materials, which includes:

  • Watching the videos
  • Completing your worksheets, templates and checklists
  • Asking questions in the Facebook group.

Putting what you’ve learned into practice will depend on how much work needs to be done. But the whole point of this Course is for you to learn at your own pace, and at a time that suits you.

And with lifetime access to the materials, you can come back to them at any point in the future.

The course was last updated in July 2020.  As the tendering world and tender questions evolve, I add additional information to ensure you stay on top of the changes. And you get lifetime access to the materials so you always have a trusted source of up to date info.


Nope, I’m afraid not. This course isn’t about magical fixes or false promises. It’s about helping you truly understand how tenders work, what clients are seeking and what evaluators are looking for. The course provides you with strategies and templates to improve your chances of being shortlisted and winning, whilst focusing on growing your business through evidence based information.


It’s the only complete Course of its kind. Because it’s created by me, a small business owner, it’s designed from a place of understanding about how difficult it is to run and grow a business and how expensive outsourcing to consultants is. I have developed this course to help you implement the same winning strategies I have used to write tenders for my clients.

In my career:

  • I write over 100 tenders per year and have won over $10 billion for my clients
  • I always go the extra mile, provide editing and additional support, as well as other resources to assist your business
  • I genuinely love writing tenders and helping businesses win – and I want you to love them too
  • The course is not some short, one day thing. It’s a complete and comprehensive resource that you can refer to for many years to come.
  • And I am here to support you every step of the way

Yes. I’ve taught students across many different industries from professional services, construction and trades, to health, design, education, cleaning and more.

This is a foundation level course, with some advanced content. If you’re already a tendering expert, the course probably isn’t right for you. If you’re not sure, just email or call me and I’ll help you figure it out.


If you’ve worked through the first module of the Course you don’t think this is for you, I’ll happily refund your payment minus a $100 admin fee. Refunds must be requested within 14 days of the course starting. After the initial refund period expires, I will continue to process any remaining payments (if you have selected a payment plan option).

The live Q&A calls are run using Zoom. They are a great way to get your questions about your specific situations answered and you can jump on any of the calls. Or you can ask a question anytime in the private Facebook group and I will answer that for you.

You will need to install Zoom on your PC or Mac to access these live sessions.

The group continues to grow every week and I have many students. However the number of students does not affect the level of support of you will receive. You have the Facebook group, the online Q&A, and I also provide personalised email support.


As soon as you’ve paid the course fee, you will receive a login and you can instantly access the member portal and course.


This course also includes over 25 templates including, schedules, checklists, presentations, tender templates, policies and a bonus sample tender response. All these documents can be adapted for your business. I also provide an additional support, such as reviewing tender structures and providing guidance on specific tender questions. The value of these additional services and lifelong access enables you to continue learning and writing winning tenders.
