Our backgrounds range widely – from engineering, IT, sales, science, strategy, training and teaching, to technology, health, policy, design and more. 

We’re united by our commitment to our clients and their projects, and fiercely proud of our reputation for professionalism, reliability, integrity and teamwork. We all enjoy the challenge of working as part of a highly effective virtual team. 

Typical projects involve one or more of our team working together to complement your in-house resources. We aim to keep our work as cost-effective as possible by finding the most appropriate mix of skills to your project. And it’s our flexibility that sets us apart: we can provide a full end-to-end bid preparation service, or simply work with you to shadow evaluate and review your tender response before submission. 

With team members located in both hemispheres, we can leverage time zone differences to meet even the toughest deadlines.
