PacPrint visitors can learn more abnout winning tenders from Celia Jordaan, host of one of the 1:30pm PacPrint Forum set for Friday May 26 at the show.

Jordaan, principal procurement advisor for Ichiban Commercial Solutions, has 21 years of international and corporate experience in procurement, tenders, supply chains, contract management, law and risk, according to the event organisers. She says, “The session will look at why businesses might choose to tender for work, how to assess and prepare your business for the tendering process, what is involved in putting together a successful tender, and how to get the most out of the process, win or lose.

“Tendering is big business, and an excellent way to establish solid, reliable revenue streams that can fund your business development and diversification, but many businesses are daunted by the prospect. Some people do not know where to find tender opportunities, or think the process is too difficult or time-consuming. Others assume you have to meet exceptionally high external standards to even be considered.

“In fact, a lot of my clients are surprised to find just how low the barriers to participation are for many tenders, and how straightforward the process can be once you know how to approach it. That is what I will be sharing in this PacPrint forum session.”
