Course overview


Want to grow your business through tendering, but unsure where to begin? 

Tendering can be daunting when you are new to the bidding business and unsure what's required to start tendering effectively.

The Tender Starter Program will give you personalised coaching and guidance on what your business needs to be tender ready, including the tools and knowledge to ensure you have the right foundations in place before you begin bidding.

Tenders require a lot of information to be compiled in tight timeframes – and can put a big drain on resources.

It pays to have the foundations in place – before you commit to the tender process – to make sure you are not wasting your time and money.

Cost: $498 (including GST) • 2 x 1.5-hour sessions
format: virtual coaching

Is this course for me?

Do you own, or work in a small or medium-sized business, and want to begin tendering for contracts?  

This program is customised to your specific business needs and the type of tenders you will be competing for.

Together, we will review example tenders, check the requirements against your business systems, and make sure you have the information to begin tendering effectively.

You may be the person who will be preparing the tender, or part of a small team who will complete the tenders. You might also be the owner of the business who will oversee the process.
