Dates of public courses are shown to the right and on the registration form – or we can provide in-house training for a group of eight or more of your employees. (These courses will be customised to your needs and run in-house: this means we will focus on topics most relevant to your organisation and assure total confidentiality.)
Our success rate is spectacular. We write hundreds of tenders for companies each year – and we win almost four out of every five tenders we bid.
We work with evaluators, Councils, and government organisations, to find out what works and what doesn’t. We also work with companies who are bidding internationally – in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and the Pacific – to help them develop winning bids.
This gives our team unique insight into how to win – consistently – in the highly competitive tendering environment. Plan A’s ‘Lift Your Game’ course will give you and your people practical tools to write winning bids. Our interactive workshop includes practical exercises, good and bad examples, and a host of hot tips.
Plan A's 'Lift Your Game' course has been updated in line with the latest version of the Government's Procurement Rules – particularly with regard to Broader Outcomes, its requirements and new scoring rules. Understanding these changes will help you win your next tender!

- What do Tender Evaluators Look For?

- Government Procurement Rules, guidelines and templates
- Efficient Bid Management
- Bid Strategy Development
- The Executive Summary
- Winning tender using Government's new focus on "Broader Outcomes"

“With 40 years of tendering under my belt, I was surprised how much valuable insight I got from going to Plan A’s Lift Your Game course. There’s a heap of useful information – from understanding the scoring systems, right through to knowing how to run tender reviews efficiently and develop powerful Executive Summaries and targeted CVs. Great to have direct feedback from tender evaluators too.”
“There was so much I did not know about tender writing before today, and in the last eight hours that situation has been completely turned around. Have also come away from the course with a concrete to-do list of incremental improvements I need to make to our presentations, and how to go about doing them. Thank you!
"Thanks Caroline. Another awesome course and I was glad I made the trip."
"Fantastic course on Friday. Caroline is well recognised as a leader in the industry and it was a real privilege to have her take the course. She really knows her stuff (from both the client and the contractor perspective) and how to put it across. Real-life examples, handy hints, a bit of fun and loads of sound, helpful, practical advice. I don’t believe there is anything else out there that would suit our needs like this course does."
