Please note that any testimonial I quote is provided on an anonymised basis. I would not want in-house or procurement teams to know that a winning firm had my assistance with their tender documentation. I take the view that my job is to work away in the background to secure a win, but I don’t take any credit publicly. I also never disclose who I work with, verbally or in writing, so if anyone hears about it, it won’t be from me.
