Are you new to tendering or don’t know if tendering will help your small business grow?
Are you unsure if tendering will work for your business?
Have you tried tendering in the past but gave up because it was just too hard? If so, this workshop could be for you.

Our hands-on workshop is designed for small businesses who are new to quotes and tendering in either government or private procurement. We provide you with practical tips on how to work out if tendering will work for your business or not. We will provide thorough insight and real-life experiences to build your knowledge and confidence for action.

This workshop will:

  1. Explain the requirements for tendering and quoting

  2. Provide small businesses with tips and the tools to be tender ready

  3. Determine gaps in business systems and processes which prevent small businesses from tendering

  4. Discuss the pros and cons of tendering for business growth

We use our a real life tender to explain the core requirements and determine gaps in business.
