We are all about words that win.

We tell winning stories; we tell your story. We review proposals. We engage with sales and proposal people and help them to improve proposals. We have heard all the horror stories: from late-night scrambling and missed opportunities, to late and non-compliant submissions. And let’s not forget the proposals that were sent out with the wrong client’s name, out-of-date information, or spelling and grammar mistakes. We know that your biggest proposal problems are tight deadlines, limited tools and lack of regulatory understanding. Oh yes, and pressure.

Lucky for you, our proposal specialists can help you to:

"nFold are, without doubt, the leading proponents of proposal best practice in Africa. It is a pleasure to partner with this excellent team, as they help their clients to achieve improvements to proposal quality and win rates. Their leadership within APMP locally illustrates their passion for championing excellence, and reflects the esteem in which they are held by so very many in the sales, bid and proposal community. Perhaps most importantly of all, they are hugely professional, hard working and fun to work with!"

Jon Williams , CP APMP Fellow and MD, Strategic Proposals

“nFold’s team made such a difference to our first big cash outsourcing bid that we were sure to involve them the moment that the next big bid was issued. Their creative spark and willingness to go the extra mile were an asset to our proposal team. We delivered our bid before the deadline and we were delighted with the final submission.”

Flavia De Cillia, Communication / Event Manager, SBV Group

“I first encountered Tom Sant’s proposal best practice in 2007 when I attended a workshop presented by nFold. I learnt a number of things but most useful was the persuasive structure. This was invaluable knowledge that I have applied to my work in proposals and bids. Tom’s internationally recognised proposal best practice is now being used by PWC and I recommend that anyone involved in selling and writing proposals should read his books and attend nFold’s training.”

Scylla Gardiner, Bid Manager, PriceWaterhouseCoopers

“Qvidian has helped us immensely with managing our time when it comes to completing/responding to RFPs. The biggest thing for us, is that Qvidian has allowed us to have information about the company centralised and at our fingertips. The ‘Google like’ search engine is the best feature as it allows us to get that information in a split second and this has been extremely valuable. We had a smooth process from nFold with getting us started and trained. The Support Team at Qvidian and nFold is always available to help and answer questions.”

Zandile Ngwepe, Institutional Distribution (STANLIB)

"You are always willing to assist and you know Qvidian really well."

Marlize Schwar, Head of Tenders / RFP, Corporate and Investment Bank (Barclays Africa)
