About Us

I created the Winning Tenders Academy following many years supporting hundreds of sole traders, micro enterprises, wider SMEs and community organisations in writing powerful tenders. This has included helping firms and community organisations to win contracts in the UK and Ireland, wider EU and North America.

My success rate on writing successful tenders is 79% and the Winning Tenders Academy offers the same templates, model answers, guidance and support that I use to write winning tenders.

“We are a physiotherapy practice with no experience of writing tenders documents. Ian’s expertise, the products, approach and expertise, meant we were able to develop a great tender and were success on a major public sector contract. More than this though we have built on this success to adapt the tender template to win other contracts.”
