Professional and Prompt Response

What really stood out?

The professional and prompt response I received along with ease in which our tender was executed.

What was our favourite thing?

It was concise and to the point. No padding – which makes for easy reading and interpretation.

Earthmoving, WA

I would give him 11/10 if it would let me!

Strategizing to come up with the placemat, designing the graphics, we are really time poor so having you to be able to do a lot of leg work really helped us out.

Doug was fantastic to deal with. He was really flexible with our working hours sometimes having a meeting after 5pm suited us better. Doug was extremely knowledgeable about the tender process and guided us through his recommendations.

He helped us with brainstorming ideas, and how to prepare for the presentation, and was able to adapt to our teams style.

Nothing was a problem for Doug, he was always happy to help with whatever was required. I would give him 11/10 if it would let me!

Best tender proposal we have ever submitted

I have received great feedback from everyone in the business (16 years plus service with us) as the best tender proposal we have ever submitted.

Well done!

Security, Melbourne


Doug is a tremendous operator who is always prepared to go above and beyond to ensure a submission is perfect! Much of what Doug does is NOT reflected is his invoices.

My experience has been fantastic.

Doug has also streamlined our approach so we are now as a business more strategic on what we bid for.

Saved us hours of work

Easy to talk to, nothing was too much trouble and quick response.

Listened to everything we said and did the very best to articulate where we were light on in some areas.

Looked so good compared to what we have done in house.

Saved us hours of work and stress by our staff who are great at their jobs but not good at telling others how good they are when preparing tenders.

Doug took care of that .

A Fine Job

We believe that Doug did a fine job on the last tender we made for government work

While our tender was not successful, that was not because of any lack in the way the proposal was formatted.

We are very happy with the work done.

Exceptional Job

Doug did an exceptional job in a very niche market.  Post manufacturing and products are a pretty dry subject but he populated a very complicated submission in a professional and timely manner.

Use them for your proposals they are great.
