After 28 years of procurement experience in defence, mining and gas and professional services BidWrite director David Lunn says co-founding the tendering consultancy was a natural progression.

“Since starting BidWrite I have learned a lot about the ‘other side’ of tendering and broadened into pretty much every industry, which has been great,” Lunn says.

Lunn will present the WA Works: How to write a winning tender workshop at the CCI function centre on June 14.

BidWrite started in Perth in 2008 and has grown ever since, with offices in Melbourne and Brisbane. 

Lunn says he enjoys working with SMEs and helping them transform their organisations through strategic wins.

“On a day-to-day basis, I love having the ability to provide my employees with an enjoyable, safe and reliable workplace, which is very important to me,” he says.

He says the company works hard to win work for clients and has an 80 per cent win rate.

“I think the tangibility of our support is the most enjoyable part of tendering,” he says.

“The measures of success are very clear: did our client win or not?  We work hard to make sure there are more on the ‘win’ side of the ledger.”

WA Works is the number one source of supply chain and major project news in the state.
