Helping Business Grow through Procurement Leadership, Building Business Capability and Supporting Tendering

Ichiban Commercial Solutions Profile What People Say
I am certainly more confident since being at your courses.  My knowledge and understanding of tendering have increased drastically because of you.

We just won the City of Joondalup tender for supply and deliver, I received 77.3% and our closest competitor was 65% against the criteria, so I was pretty happy, but can do better.  Also, that was submitted before your last workshop, so I will aim for at least 80% next tender.

I am so glad I was fortunate and able to attend your workshops, tendering is so important to our business, I want to win as many as I can.  I actually enjoy the challenge now.

“One of the two standout training sessions were Tendering Masterclass with Celia Jordaan. I have attended every free workshop available through SBDC in May and June and these are the 2 stand out workshops.  These trainers/presenters are high calibre in their presentation skills and content, in my mind they are an asset to your business and your brand. Thank you for this equity of access to superior training/ presentation/ workshops.​”

“Celia is fun to work with. She’s got a serious side but she enjoys what she does and her enthusiasm is infectious. She can size up a situation quickly and accurately, and her legal training shows through in her ability to ask the right sort of questions to get to the bottom of an issue. I’d happily work with her again”

“Celia builds lasting relationships and approaches negotiations in a fair and reasonable manner. Celia would be a true asset to assist any business requiring her procurement and risk management skills.”

"Celia Jordaan provided excellent support and guidance during a recent tender that I prepared. I found Celia to be very knowledgable and informative, which helped me developing some new skills and building my business. "

Kim Kristoffersen | Start Consulting

" Celia Jordaan is one of those once in a lifetime connections you make. She has an uncanny ability to connect with others and a deep sense of intuition that I see as one of her greatest strengths, alongside being practical, insightful and wonderfully professional. I have found her to be supportive and encouraging and constantly interested in the business I am running and providing countless ways to help it grow. A top performer. I truly would not go past her. It is a pleasure to both know, and work with her. "

Caryn Walsh | Pure Magic International Business Solutions

"Celia quickly grasped the contractual issues I was dealing with, she showed great insight and depth of professional commercial knowledge. This helped turn a difficult negotiation into a practical solution, culminating in a successful outcome. I have no hesitation recommending Celia to anyone."

"Celia keeps her eye on the goal and manages the negotiation process very well to ensure that a successful outcome is reached for her business yet not compromising the relationship between supplier /customer. There is no doubt Celia has a strong ability to negotiate."
