Testimonials from our clients
Education and Training - Bids key to our business strategy
We were recommended by a partner organisation to use Bid Writer Consultancy (BID) and from the first telephone call we were pleased with our decision. Nothing was too much trouble for the team. We were supported during the PQQ and tender stages of strategically important opportunities. Two team members worked with us at our base in Motherwell to match the unique points of our delivery model to service specifications. We were delighted to win two contracts. We would definitely work with BID again and have already recommended them to others in our sector. Elayne Muir, Contracts Director, Verg (Vocational Education Resource Group)
Health Equipment - Improving a draft bid response
I was very impressed by the professionalism and high standard of the team at Bid Writer Consultancy (BID). We contacted Sharon to help improve our draft responses four days before a tender submission deadline. From our initial enquiry Sharon and her team were a pleasure to work with. They worked evenings and the weekend to support us and highlighted areas we hadn't even considered to improve our submission. I have no hesitation recommending BID to other companies looking for support. Sam Wheatcroft, Director, Multicare.
Highways Maintenance - Sector Expertise
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sharon and Colin at Bid Writer Consultancy for their help on our recent tender. They had excellent understanding of our business. Their advice was very beneficial and the work was first class in very short timeframes. Having used other companies before it was amazing how the team at BID managed to improve on their work so much. I realise now that winning is about having the rightpeople who understand our sector supporting our bids. After reviewing commissioner feedback on a submission, it showed that you really were spot on with your observations and suggestions. It’s made me appreciate the work you did for me even more”. Needless to say I will be using their services again. Adam Bunce, Director, 2020 Consultancy – Highways and Transportation Consultants.

Social Care Tenders - 100% Bid Success
I would like to thank Bid Writer Consultancy (BID) for their help on our recent tenders. We have worked with BID since 2015 and on every tender the team are utterly committed to producing a response that truly highlights our passion and the quality of our work. The same writer is designated to work closely with us on an on-going basis. They have good understanding of our sector and tendering process. I firmly believe we would not have achieved the results that we wanted without their input and have no hesitation in continuing to work with them or to recommend BID to others.

Young People's Activities - Bid Writing
Highly recommended! Having considered numerous bid writers, we opted to use Bid Writer Consultancy and are delighted to have done so. We contacted Sharon to work with us on a very short deadline bid. She worked outside normal hours to provide great advice and excellent hands-on support in helping us to write our tender. We submitted a high quality bid and also have far better documentation in preparation for future bids. We will certainly be working with Sharon again in the future" Alex Hardy, Coordinator Commando Joe’s
Welfare to Work - Bid Management
Sharon played a key role in the growth of A4e's Enterprise division through her bid writing skills and success rates. One of Sharon's key strengths is her ability to identify key issues quickly and ask the difficult questions which need to be addressed when working through the bid process. She is direct and honest and not afraid to challenge operational delivery models. Evelyn Rimmer. Head of Enterprise Operations, A4e
As two self employed bid writers, Sharon and I worked as part of a bid team for a national welfare to work provider. I have no hesitation in recommending Sharon for any challenge that requires hard work and attention to detail, particularly when working to short deadlines. Sharon drove the bid writing process, freeing the companies internal staff to concentrate on their financial calculations. She has a wealth of knowledge and is an asset to any organisation. Deborah Robinson. Bid Writing Consultant
Welfare to Work - Consistent Results
Sharon brings enthusiasm and commitment to every task. Some of the projects that she played a key part of within Shaw Trust were major, business-critical contracts. She drew on her expertise to ensure that proposals which were recommended to the Strategic Management Team were as robust as they could be within an uncertain and challenging public sector contracting environment. Julie Currin. Chief Finance Officer. Shaw Trust
