Gary Brown
Gary Brown - Water Industry
With over 35+ years experience as a Water Consultant Specialist
 
 
"BDM Commando" The Business Development Manager
Gary Brown believes strongly that the secret to providing the Client with the right solution is not done during the Tender Period and that the most important period is the 3 to 12 months prior. If the hard yards have been done and a resource has been committed to this fulltime then the final submission should be the finalisation of the proposal .
Knowing more about your Client and their project then they do is the key that will open the door to your proposal being the winning tender.
Dion Khan
Dion Khan - Construction Industry
With over 17+ years experience in Project Management and Property Development
 
 
Dion states that often, firms do not thoroughly understand the client's tender requirements and invariably miss the mark by not effectively reading the tender documents. Assumptions must be reduced in a tender as different projects (and clients) can have very different requirements. Quite often tenders are written with the bidding party in mind but not the clients requirements. This is a costly mistake... Understanding the client requirements is key to success.

Part 02 - A Blast from the past "Lord Mayor Jim"

 

In Celebration of the Riverfire 2012 Festival in Brisbane this weekend and introducing our new series "BIG Brother" Working with Government,

We thought that it might be a treat to bring "Lord Mayor Jim" out of retirement to have a chat.

 

The real Jim Soorley has been credited with many great changes whilst serving as Lord Mayor of Brisbane from 1991-2003.

His efforts instigated major infrastructure projects such as the Inner City Bypass, Eleanor Schonell Bridge, North-South Bypass Tunnel and the Riverwalk pathways.

He was also involved with taking some council departments from general management to adopting management by project principals, increasing opportunities for apprenticeships and enterprise bargaining.
