Online Tender Training Courses

Proposing a tender is one thing, but submitting a stand-out, winning tender requires time, preparation and an in-depth understanding of the tendering process. With a wealth of tender experience under my belt, my tendering course will show you how to prepare, create and present tender responses that will win contracts.

Currently in development and set for release mid-2017, my online Tender Training Course will be like no other. In fact, there is no other course out there like it!

“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.”

“Thank you very much for the tender training workshop yesterday at Box Hill Institute. Everyone on the team 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. I will definitely recommend you to other business units at Box Hill Institute.
