Alliance Partner Business Templates

I know the value of having done-for-you templates – I use them in my business for areas outside my expertise. Here’s a few template packages from some other great businesses.

Earnings disclaimer – yes, if you buy any of these template packages I do get a commission – usually enough to grab a coffee somewhere nice. That said, unless I believe in the packages offered by my colleagues, you won’t see them on this page.

Proposal TemplatesProposal kit

If you have to write tenders, proposals, grants proposals or quotes, then the Proposal Kit makes your life a heck of lot easier. I have been using the proposals kit for years to kick-start proposals and tender documents for many of my clients. These documents form the foundation that we then build on to help my clients win business tenders.

Each pack comes with templates, proposals, checklists and software to make the job of pulling together a credible & professional document simple.

If you ever have to put together a proposal – start with the Proposal Kit!
