Bid leadership in Aerospace and Defence

Supporting one of the world’s largest defence companies on the largest tender they had ever submitted

We had to work against almost impossibly tight deadlines and weave in costs from suppliers on both sides of the Atlantic. The fact that the tender document consisting of 5,404 pages was submitted to the Ministry of Defence by the deadline and looked, read and felt totally professional was almost entirely due to Jon Darby’s diligence, organisational skills and previous experience.

In the UK alone the writing and reviewers totalled over 75 people; all of whom needed guidance, corralling, coordinating, coaching, and cajoling. Jon proved himself to be patient in adversity and never lost his sense of perspective and humour.

Great work, for which many thanks!
