Marcus White

What our clients have to say

“Absolutely amazing service. The attention to detail was 100%. Davey was a pleasure to work with and had the patience of a Saint. We engaged a Bid Specialist to assist with an important tender in which we were bidding against larger operations than ourselves. We were successful, and it was commented that they hadn’t seen a document so informative and well presented. Highly recommended 👌”

Cathal Doorley

What our clients have to say

“We enlisted the help of Davey with a recent Government tender of considerable value and associated prestige for our company.
After an initial briefing, it was evident that the services we had to offer, our integrity as a business and our dedication to quality would be showcased in a serious and uncompromisingly professional manner in Davey’s hands.

Although his first tender proposal for our industry, his insight into our operations and company objectives was utterly commendable.
Such was his attention to detail. It’s as if he swallowed the RFT document whole and then produced 100% recall and sound guidance on any related question we posed.

Lastly, but by no means least, Davey is a refreshingly no-nonsense guy to deal with and gave us his dedicated time throughout the process.”

To date, our partnership maintains a 100% win record. Thanks very much, Davey Owens and his team.”
