Testimonials and kind words....

Hi Dennis

Thanks for the assistance with the Coleg Sir Gar tender - we were successful, and have been invted to give a presentation!

Karl Miller, Harris Miller Electrical and Mechanical Solutions


We felt that to give ourselves the best chance of winning the contract, we would need professional support. Lilypad came to us highly recommended and did not disappoint - we won the business.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Lilypad, their work is proven, and their fees are competitive and transparent.

Kevin Hobbs, Pontypridd Auctions Ltd.

Dennis investigated our operations, and provided professional support and guidance in submitting our Disability Adaptations tender. He was always available on the phone and by e-mail to help with those responses which we could complete ourselves, and completed the others himself with diligence and professionalism. 

We would not hesitate to use Lilypad in future, and recommend Lilypad to anyone looking to tender for Public Sector work.

Hi Dennis

Just thought I would let you know that we won the contract. I would like to thank you for all the hard work; we wouldn’t have done it without you!

Good morning Dennis

.....We were successful in tendering for the demolition job. Many thanks again!

Dean Williams - Bond Demolition Ltd.


... All of us agree that Dennis' skills are outstanding. He garnered all the right information from Spectrum, used the correct terminology and style required, and everything written was word perfect. He works to the highest standard. As a result of his hard work, Spectrum achieved the highest score and came first in the National Procurement Service 'Whole of Wales' tender for print services. Thank you!

Lawrence Corria - Spectrum Printing Ltd.


Just to let you know that Workforce Wellbeing has been invited to the presentation stage. Thanks for your help - it's over to us now!

Dr. Massoud Mansouri - Workforce Wellbeing Ltd.

Lilypad came to us highly recommended. Dennis very quickly learned about our business, and contributed hugely by advising us that we were NOT ready to submit the tender at the time, and why. He advised us on how to become ready, and how to try to ensure that our new service will be included on tenders subsequently. We look forward to working with him again soon.

Paul Wilkins, Emergency Medical Training Ltd.


Dennis was excellent. He quickly identified the information required, and presented it in the best possible light. We won the work, and are in no doubt that it was thanks to Dennis’ input.

Cerys Ashley, Director, Ashley HR Consultancy Ltd.


We were successful in the Housing Association tender. We have passed your name and contact details to another supplier because someone in the Housing Association told him how good our tender was. Thanks again.

Louise Williams, Director, Amico Electrical Services Ltd


..discussions with you really prised out the key information, discarded the less relevant and included the things we thought were obvious. You presented short, sharp information in language that tender readers understand, resulting in a substantial contract for Seraph Property Management.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you.

Rhianne Haig, Head of Property Management and Finance, Seraph Property Management Ltd.
