Peter started writing bids in major infrastructure in 2010 and has since written bids in facilities maintenance, logistics and transport, private security and several other industries. This diversity has honed his sense of bid strategy and bid process which is common to all industries. Shipley trained, and drawing on his writing and communications background, Peter is known for strategic thinking, clear communication and staying level-headed under pressure.

Our Values

and Commitments.

Our values guide how we work and who we work with.

Our Projects and Clients

We do not work on bids for: the coal mining industry, projects which cause significant environmental pollution, projects which are opposed by the Aboriginal Traditional Owners or projects which infringe on human rights (such as offshore refugee processing).

Our People

We foster a culture of integrity, commitment to learning and continual improvement, and commitment to delivering value to our clients. We appreciate professionalism, punctuality and excellent presentation.

Our Commitment

We promote equal opportunity irrespective of gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religion. We are aware that we work in male dominated industries, and strongly commit to nurturing and supporting our female colleagues to excel. Many of our people are early in their careers, and we commit to supporting and upskilling them in their professional and personal development. We encourage and support our people to achieve their dreams.
