Event description
This hands-on workshop will help you practise your tender writing skills using practical examples and an in-class workbook.

About this Event

Please note: this event is run by the Small Business Development Corporation for small business owners in Western Australia only.

This workshop has been specifically designed for small business owners who have a basic understanding of what tendering is and are ready to take the next steps, or for people who have tried in the past with little success. It’s ideal for those who are already working in or providing goods in the business-to-business space, either in government or private procurement.

The workshop includes an opportunity to practice completing a tender and provides useful tables and formats that can be re-used and repurposed.

This topic covers

  • How to find and downloading tenders, preparing and submitting tenders and obtaining post-tender feedback;
  • Detailed explanation of all elements of a tender including mandatory compliance, qualitative and pricing;
  • How to show value for money and ways to stand out from the crowd;
  • The importance of determining gaps in business systems and processes.

This session is for people who already have some knowledge of tendering and have included it in their business growth plan. Please bring along copies of any previous tenders you have completed, tender opportunities you are interested in or any specific questions about tendering that you have.

The facilitator for this topic, Ichiban Commercial Solutions, provides a range of practical workshops to help remove barriers to winning government tenders. The workshop is presented by Principal Procurement Advisor, Celia Jordaan. As a small business owner herself, Celia understands your situation, and combines this knowledge with her corporate and international experience in law, procurement, and the management of risk and contractors.  

This session is presented by the SBDC, the only agency in the Western Australian Government dedicated to helping small business. In fact, we've been providing practical support to small business owners for more than 30 years.

Additional information for online workshop sessions

Please check your computer's suitability for online workshops, including its sound quality, browser, internet bandwidth and speed and video plugins (if required) before the start of the online workshop session. Camera and microphone capabilities are recommended to interact with online workshops.

Our online workshops are run as live, interactive sessions, similar to the format of our face-to-face sessions. For this reason, there is a limited number of tickets per session so our presenters can adequately interact with, and respond to, attendees. Recordings of these live sessions are not available if you do not attend the live event time.

Additional information for face-to-face workshop sessions

No, you don't need to bring your printed ticket.

We value inclusion for clients requiring disability access and our workshops are delivered in a variety of buildings and locations. If you would like further information about accessing a particular workshop please use the contact button at the end of this page to send us your query.
