Executive Compass® come highly recommended. We requested their services at very short notice and the team helped us with their expertise in the bid writing process for our new crime duty provider contract. Without the team we could not have achieved a successful tender. They worked tirelessly to meet our tight deadline and had staff available over the bank holiday weekend to ensure the work was done and that our submission stood out from the remainder of the bidding firms. A great service provided and a job very well done!

This was our first major tender. Executive Compass® sailed us through the process, guiding us with their expertise all the way through. We were encouraged to play a part in the tender and add our personal touches about our business where possible. We were allocated Tom and he was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble and he the patience of a saint! He knew we were novices with tendering and made the whole experience an enjoyable, stress free one. We shall definitely be coming back for our next tender. Thank you, Tom and the Executive Compass® team!

After being faced with an Invitation to Tender that was very much out of our comfort zone, we approached John at Executive Compass®. John ran through how he would deal with the process of obtaining information and then putting together draft responses for review and additions as required.

This process ran smoothly, despite being in the heart of the holiday season and a mix of telephone interviews and emails provided the responses required. We scored very highly and were awarded a place on a framework that was strategically important to our future business. I would not hesitate in returning to John and his team in the future.

In January 2015 I spent a day with Neil Capstick taking me through the rigours of PQQ’s and tendering and, being a relative novice, I found the day to be an absolute joy! I learned invaluable knowledge and was presented with information, instruction and training bespoke to my role and industry. Neil and his staff were accommodating, friendly and professional, keeping the sessions informal but thorough and left me armed with all the outcomes required by my employer.

Days later, I attempted my first PQQ and won the tender with full marks on the quality submission section. This was largely down to the personal level of service I received from Executive Compass® and continued assistance via email from Neil and his staff. Fantastic and educational day at a reasonable price.

Real Life Options

Real Life Options have enjoyed a successful business partnership with Executive Compass® for the past 18 months. During that time we have engaged the services of Neil, John and the team on numerous occasions, several of them at very short notice; on each and every occasion our experience has been positive.

The tenders that have been completed for us have been to an exceptional standard and always delivered prior to agreed timescales. These factors alone would have been enough for us to continue our partnership with Executive Compass®, but the service offered is so much more.

You approach Neil with a major headache caused by the daunting prospect of writing 20,000 words and within no time at all you are reassured and a huge weight is lifted from your shoulders. This is in no small part down to the professionalism of everyone at Executive Compass®; but what really struck us as unique was their desire to really understand the ethos of our organisation and the fact that that they genuinely cared about the sustainable development of our organisation.

We would, without reservation recommend Neil and his team to everyone who was looking for dedicated professional business advice and support.

We had occasion to use Executive Compass® for the first time last year. From the initial contact to starting to work on a project we found them responsive, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Whether dealing on the phone or face to face they were always accessible regardless of the time of day. The project was delivered on time and has resulted in us achieving Tier 1 status with the supplier so reaching our desired outcome. We are confident we could have not done this without the input of Executive Compass®.

We needed our tender application to be swift as we had a tight deadline. ExecutiI entered my first tender process at the tail end of 2013 and contacted Executive Compass. This proved to be an excellent decision. In essence I knew my company provided a very good level of service but if like me you struggle to present yourself in a way that convinces others then John and the team at EC are who you need to help you achieve this.

If you approach this expecting them to do all the work you will not succeed it is very much a team approach, you are encouraged and guided to gather the evidence needed to convince others of your competence this is packaged, proof read and tweaked before finally presented in a very professional manner.

This teamwork ensured we not only secured our contract, but achieved the highest quality rating from the process an outstanding result, thanks John.e Compass® worked efficiently and with good communication. We also won the tender!

Big Hand Company

The team worked closely with my team on the production of a critical PQQ in advance of completing the most important tender to date for our Business Unit. The advice was invaluable for the specific piece of work but, importantly, was adopted by the team to enable us to benefit for all future tenders as well. Executive Compass's® advice helped us review how we tackled these procurement exercises and I have no doubt our processes are improved because of it. Thank you.

Au début de cette année 2011 j’avais à remplir un questionnaire pour un appel d’offre pour une municipalité de Londres. Étant une petite entreprise, j’ai décide de faire appel à des experts et je me félicite tout les jours de cette décision car Neil Capstick, de « Executive Compass® », est une vraie merveille. Son professionnalisme, son enthousiasme sont d’un autre monde, et bien qu’étant une petite entreprise Neil s’est complètement investi dans ce projet, comme si il faisait parti de notre équipe, ET nous avons gagne le contrat !! Merci mille fois Neil et au prochain appel d’offre !!

I just wanted to express my sincere thanks to Executive Compass® for the presentation on Bid Writing Skills at a work shop held on Thursday 29 September. Having prepared previous bids for which we have had minimal success, we were hoping as a company to learn a bit more from the presentation. We can say that the workshop was pitched at exactly the right level for novices and those, like ourselves who just needed the extra bit of guidance. The presentation style kept us interested and we thought it very detailed given the time constraints. Even during breaks the team were more than happy to sit with us to clarify and give further information. We can without a doubt say that we have definitely learned much more than we anticipated about bid writing and should be able to apply this to our own future bids

I have used Neil from Executive Compass® on four occasions and have no problem recommending him. He assisted me with the PQQ and tenders and offers advice and guidance all the way. An intelligent wordsmith who knows his job and does it well. The service he delivers goes far beyond your expectations a person who takes pride in his job and treats you as if you were the only important client he has no matter how small the job. Each time is another step on the learning curve. Thanks Neil

His practical approach is refreshing in that it has challenged our thinking in a friendly way and has allowed us to rethink some of the core aspects of our business. I have no hesitation in recommending Neil to others in a similar role.

Words cannot express how impressed we have been with Executive Compass®, from the initial enquiry phone call to the delivery of the training workshop by Neil Capstick – Managing Director. What has struck us as the most prominent of benefits in attending the PQQ & Tender writing training course was how easy writing a PQQ and tender really is when given the right guidance and support. Our thanks to the Executive Compass® team for a great training workshop, we look forward to working further with you in the future.

Antoinette Bateman Forever Green

Wanted to say how much we enjoyed Wednesday's training session.  Everyone who attended was really impressed with the day; even our more cynical team members were won over! It’s already helping us to start shaping our process and message in a more coherent form and given us a solid starting point for future tenders. Thank you!

Dale Ruddy iSite


I want to say a big thank you for delivering the PQQ, Bid and Tender Writing Training course held this week. The first contact with the team via the internet was really good, Amy was extremely helpful and really responsive via email answering my many (many) queries which gave a great first impression of Executive Compass.

Although some of our team had been involved in tenders before, we did not have the full knowledge needed to put a bid together that we were 100% confident would win. After Neil’s presentation, as it was aimed at the right level for the audience and with his presentation style keeping us all really interested with a personable and realistic delivery, staff left feeling more confident which will make such a difference to our business going forward with future tenders. Again I want to say thank you for all your help and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this service to others – we are already looking in to holding more training next year!
