Read what our clients say…

I found you enthusiastic and energetic to work with, and someone who brought a new perspective.

Critically to me, you could get on with things with minimum direction, which was essential given the volume of work the team was dealing with. For the work you did for us:

  • With the bid text, we would not have got the design text ready without your input. You went about getting input from the team in a systematic way
  • With the exec summary, you provided a useful fresh set of eyes to question some of the things we have done in the past, which lead to a much better document
Jerome Kearns

Bid Director, Balfour Beatty

The proposal has come out in ‘flesh and blood’ and looks marvellous. Everyone is excited and people have been lavish in their praises.

Rajesh Menon

Audit Manager, KPMG Bahrain

Thank you! I just want to have a quick rave about the training yesterday delivered by Rick. It was very interesting, engaging and informative and provided a real insight into how to deliver a successful bid.

More importantly I felt inspired to get more involved and now feel much better equipped as a subject matter expert to deliver the right content for the bid process. I don’t think I was alone on this. Very impressed!

Emma Devenish

Head of Sustainability, Airwave

We have been very impressed with the work you did for us in getting us to this stage.

The client feedback has been nothing but positive remarks – actually lots of gushing from NYSE on the professionalism of the response and presentation – they love it and it obviously helped us reach stage we are now at with them.

Working with you was most entertaining and a great pleasure, you know your stuff and you know how to handle objections in a pleasant way, and I would indeed recommend you to other people.

Kate Lovell

Office Manager, Copperdime

Rick made the difference between an adequate and an exceptional response.

He has set the bar for bid management and I intend to use him in all of my major bids going forward.

Yann Marston

Director of New Market Strategy, Airwave

Rick is very well-versed in best practice for proposal writing, applying his knowledge to help us develop a highly readable, client-focused
proposal. We definitely recommend him, and would have him back working on a bid anytime.

Ken Erskine

Thank you very much for all your help – truly exceptional in my book.

Mark McDonnell

Rick, thanks once again for your sterling efforts and great job done. Myself and my team appreciated your valuable contributions.
Nick Martin

Rick is obviously very skilled in this area and fully committed to helping us get through the next stage of our bid. 

He was prepared & organised for the course, achieved his stated objectives and his skills were effective.


Jason Tandy

Service Design & Transition Manager, Airwave

Carlsberg don’t do bid management…but if they did, Rick would be running the department. This man makes a real difference!
