Essence Health Care

”Ian has been very helpful in supporting me with tender writing and I have found him to be very professional and honest. I particularly like the transparency and level of due diligence which he maintains throughout the exercise. I have learnt so much about tender writing and completing certain forms in a way that is more acceptable to commissioners and this was because through his experience, Ian always took time to explain reasons why certain documentation had to be completed in a certain way. I highly recommend Ian’s services to those seeking support with tender writing particularly new start ups as there is a lot of support and coaching (he probably isn’t aware that he can go into coaching) it just comes as second nature! I would use Ian’s services again and for the price he charges, a very invaluable service!”

”I have worked with Ian on a couple of tenders, I have found him easy to work with, very structured, supportive and brings so much experience and efficiency, I will always use him. In the past I have worked with tender writers who charge highly inflated prices and deliver very little, whereas Ian is exceptional value for money, with a quality product to go with it. I have recommended him and his services to my networks and contacts”
