newAv2013aTendering is one of the most important channels for developing and growing your small business. Yet finding the right contracts, navigating the rules, writing well and managing the response process can be stressful and time consuming.

My aim is to help small businesses in the UK find and win the public and private sector contracts that will increase your revenue, grow your company and improve your market share, through bid writing & ‘tender-ready’ services, expert advice and guidance.

With over 25 years’ experience gained within a variety of industries and sectors on both sides of the tender process, and a background including marketing communications, project management and graphic design, I work closely with you and your key staff to fully understand your business, help you define and find the best contracts for your company and produce impressive, effective tender responses.

I work for myself from my home office in Birmingham UK. Outsourcing work to other writers is extremely rare and only ever happens when it’s a complex bid that needs additional specialist knowledge. I never farm out work to others without your full knowledge and agreement.

Every client is different and I wear many ‘hats’: writer, troubleshooter, expert, guidance counsellor, cheerleader and more! The bottom line is:

I’m here to make tendering easier, quicker and more successful for you.

The issues that many small businesses face when tendering are often similar regardless of the sector, especially when competing against larger, even global, players.

From micro-businesses tendering for key contracts to well-established enterprises looking for long-term growth, I develop tender responses that showcase the unique benefits your specific business can bring to the contract and demonstrate why your company is a better fit than the rest.
