This book aims to help you when you need to write that all-important tender, but should you feel overwhelmed by the prospect, you could consider employing a professional tender writer. These are people who know how to write winning proposals and are experienced in the art of written communication. Some of them will even do presentations on your behalf, or can design your presentation for you to deliver to your prospective client.As a dying skill in today’s business world, organisations need to get better at conveying their messages. Many organisations have the attributes, resources and experience to win tenders and deliver great work - but simply aren’t putting themselves out there as winning contenders.Arthur Parker Ramani, director of Wordcorp, is a highly experienced writer and consultant to numerous Australasian businesses. His experience spans across 10 industries and has written tenders and proposals with over a billion dollars worth of value.While there is no substitute for working with an experienced writer, this book covers much of the fundamental writing knowledge and secrets of standing out that will give you the edge.As a specialist in business communications, Arthur’s fundamental belief is that writing should be built around ‘Plain English’ content that is easy to understand. His aim is to portray the very real possibility of having this through all tenders and proposals, to help people win their bids and secure that ever important business deal or opportunity.
