SMALL BUSINESS WORKSHOPS

Grants, Tendering & Procurement - by RSM Business Local

Red Earth Arts Precinct

Thurs 20th Sept 5:30pm - 8:30pm

This FREE workshop will provide small business owners and start-ups with the know-how to increase the success of your tender submissions.

Presented by RSM Business Local - Business Advisor, Ren Mullane, this workshop covers the following topics:

  • procurement processes
  • tender opportunities available
  • collaborative bidding
  • writing winning tenders
  • tips to improve your tender responses.

This session includes a complimentary one hour follow up meeting or telephone call to assist in preparing or submitting a tender.

Speaking off the cuff is often required in meetings, impromptu presentations, supervising staff, job interviews and when responding to questions from an audience. To successfully communicate your ideas in these situations you must be able to organise your thoughts quickly and present them in a clear and logical manner, that meets the audiences needs.
