A recent tender opportunity brought us the chance to work with Opus Media, a local film and television production company. They had this to say about our work:
“I was delighted with the service I received from Courtney Tender Services.
Stuart took the time to learn about my business and the nature of the tender requirements, and then advised me explaining details of the direction we should take on the tender. The tender was written in great detail, with perfect attention to details, and was delivered well ahead of schedule despite the tight deadline.
I am delighted with the service and would recommend anybody looking for someone to work on their tender to look no further than Courtney Tender Services”
A recent proof-reading exercise was undertaken for Digital Config, a local provider of web and IT services:
“We recently needed to complete a Tender Application that had a very short deadline.
We had met Stuart and Elaine from Courtney Reed Group some time ago during our usual business networking events and watched their business grow from strength to strength – so we knew these were the guys to help. And we were right.
The support they provided from start to finish within such a short timescale was perfect and has opened a new avenue that our business can now pursue.
Highly recommended for their professionalism and expertise.”
Assistance was provided on recent tender opportunity to Danny Clarke Training:
“What I like about Stuart is his combination of professionalism based in speaking in real terms aka English that’s really beneficial. Stuart understands the language & terminology that tenders require, the ‘hoops needed to be jumped through’ and the key response elements that the marking panel is looking for.
His best point is that he doesn’t smooch i.e. flatters you that your original thoughts/comments will suffice for an application. He will politely challenge & question you on what you’re really trying to get across. He has been a strong support to me and I would highly recommend him to others”
A recent complex tender document prompted Maple Health Group Ltd to engage Courtney Tender Services in a proof-reading capacity:
“We asked you to provide consultancy allowing us to complete the work and gain knowledge. We found you very responsive and efficient, providing detailed and clear feedback on our submission. At one stage when tender fatigue set in you provided motivation to keep us on track. We cannot thank you enough for those words of encouragement.
The work that you provided was to a level of sophistication that gave us the confidence that we had made the right decision. You took our application to another level and gave us more confidence in our submission. We would highly recommend you and Courtney Tender Services to others wanting move into this arena.”
“Stuart, thank you for supporting our bid to win a significant piece of work to deliver Coaching & Mentoring Programmes to three Universities. Preparing a bid can be extremely daunting for businesses like ours, yet there’s often a reluctance to outsource to experts, feeling that ‘We can do this ourselves’. We may be reluctant to spend money on expertise with without knowing what the outcome of the bid will be.
I decided in this case I was tired of spending so much time on bids with diminishing returns and I made the decision to make a change, one that would give me the best chance of securing the work and freeing up my own time to run the business.
This has turned out to be a great decision. You made the process so much easier than in the past, I found the recording of our initial conversations, through various iterations to the presentation of the final document much, much easier and I had confidence that an expert eye was on the proceedings throughout. Nothing was too much trouble and you were keen to find out how it had been received.
I was delighted to get a phone call to say that we had won the contract, alongside some informal feedback to say our written submission was by far the best received in terms of quality. I have no hesitation in encouraging others to let go and outsource their bid/tender writing to Courtney Tender Services.”
“Stuart and I have been working together for around 2 years now and can honestly say it has been an easy, pleasant and amicable relationship. Stuart and his team work to a very professional standard which helps massively when tendering for high profile contracts. His knowledge on tenders is unbelievable.
Currently between Stuart and ourselves we have accomplished a 75% success rate on the tenders we have submitted and I firmly believe we would be nowhere near that mark if it was not for Stuart.
We look forward to continuing our relationship and hope for further contracts in the future.”
“We have been working with Stuart from Courtney Tender Services across different areas of our business, and I can highly recommend the services offered. Stuart has worked hard to develop an in-depth understanding of our business to enable us to demonstrate our experience and quality processes effectively as part of a bid. We have seen significant success on both contract and framework bids, with quality scores of over 90% being consistently achieved thanks to Stuart’s input and attention to detail.”
