Testimonials

The amount of value we have received through our partnership with Dawtek has been beyond our expectations. Kristine has elevated our delivery with tender compliance, creative thinking, copywriting and design and this has given us the opportunity to win more work, more often. I would highly recommend Dawtek’s services.

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 Steeldrill International

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

Thank you for your dedication and commitment to help us fulfil our project requirements. Your technical expertise and attention to our needs have led to the AgriGater User Manual and AgriGater Workbook to become outstanding professional documents, of which the Development Team is exceptionally proud to author.

We also wish to thank you for your promptness with each draft tum-around, your recommendations and your editing skills during the copy write phases for each document.

Thank you very much for the tender training workshop yesterday at Box Hill Institute. We were discussing the training with our colleagues this morning and everyone agreed it was an excellent training session and provided much needed updates on tender writing processes and how to write a winning tender. I was particularly pleased with the edit and critique of one of our current tenders. Using a real example was a very effective method to examine the principles of good tender writing and explore areas for improvement. Like all good training there was validation and consolidation of existing knowledge combined with acquisition of new skills and knowledge.

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.

“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.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for coming in and meeting with us. My tender skills have come a long way and even though I still have a way to go and still need to find time to implement all your suggestions. But after using your template and a few of your suggestions I have won two tenders in the past two months, compared to only winning one in the previous 8 months.  Thanks again for all your help, I really appreciate it.

I am happy with the tender writing, tender editing and tender evaluation services provided. Dawtek is able to absorb the brief provided by the tenderer and turn this brief into a tender response. Dawtek’s communication, turnaround times and adherence to timelines is excellent. Their flexibility makes Dawtek an easy organisation to work with.

We do not have the skills or resources available to tender for all the opportunities that we are interested in, and in addition, the increasing quality of tender responses has also caused New Horizons to seek assistance. By using Dawtek, we have won tenders that we otherwise may not have. I recommend Dawtek.

Dawtek provided us with guidance on response coverage; response document layout; and response document readability. Dawtek interviewed subject matter experts, drafted tender responses and edited final documents. I am very happy to recommend Dawtek’s services to organisations seeking assistance in developing competitive responses to Requests for Tender. Kristine Daw and her staff worked with Job Futures staff and our members. She was able to accommodate our proposed approach and to recommend improvements. Dawtek’s capacity to deliver high volume of quality material under extreme time pressure was exceptional. Project management skills were also excellent. Dawtek’s work with us on the DES tender was excellent and contributed to a good outcome. Kristine and her team’s flexibility and commitment meant that Dawtek’s services were exceptional value for money.

Job Futures

The Salvation Army Employment Plus have utilised the business writing services of Dawtek over the past five years to assist with the preparation of various tender submissions and development of strategic plans.

The team at Dawtek have provided assistance with the preparation, critiquing and editing of tender documentation for submission, as well as the development of strategic planning workshops. Working closely with our own team, they have been able to establish a greater level of understanding of both the requirements of the tendering body and our organisation as the tenderers. This knowledge and understanding translated into the preparation and finalisation of the tender submission.

At all times Dawtek have provided a high standard of professionalism and support that goes beyond the 9 to 5 working week. They delivered documentation that provides a high level of clarity and usability, as well as ensuring a timely turnaround where deadlines are critical.

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.

Kristine and her business Dawtek, is the No. 1 go to tender professional.  Kristine’s ability and speed to ascertain the goals and context of the job and help us to deliver the best response possible is incredible.   Teaching us how to write better, by simply following her example is an additional bonus. Subsequent tenders we have written have been even more efficient and the win rate speaks for itself. We are so grateful we found Kristine and think of her now as an essential part of our extended team.

Culturally Directed Care Solutions

The Schweppes marketing team had a competitive and high-value tender to respond to, so we engaged Kristine Daw and her team at Dawtek.

Kristine and her team were charged with the task of developing the content, writing, editing and formatting a multi-million dollar proposal. More than ever, it was essential that we showed the tendering agency that we were capable of innovative solutions that not only met their commercial needs but would also align with their environmental and philanthropic goals.

It was a multi-layered response that needed to deliver commercial viability, environmental commitment and a new level of innovation that the agency had not seen before. Kristine and her team produced a beautifully-designed tender response in InDesign, that was not only impressive to look at but had considered, well-thought out business responses that the agency would not see amongst our competitors’ responses.

Dawtek recognised that we needed to differentiate ourselves by presenting our story in a much more creative way and showcase our products and offering in a new and fresh way. The turn-around time was short and the document development took just over three weeks. Kristine and her team worked tirelessly on our response, illustrating at every stage that they understood our organisation, our needs, but most importantly, they recognised what our client was looking for in the response.

Schweppes Australia was successful in winning this high-profile, multi-million dollar contract. Our partnership with Dawtek was extremely successful and I highly recommend their services
