Past Events 

Meet up in Melbourne

What do you call a gathering of bid professionals? 

Whatever it’s called, we were out in full force at the APMP ANZ Chapter Melbourne drinks on Thursday 4 July. 

It was great to see so many new people. Attendees were from all walks of life: engineering, law, IT, banking, healthcare; and were both inhouse and consultants.  This is the most engagement and attendance we have had for social drinks. And the vibe on the night was just awesome. 

Contact Kate Woodlock on to find out more about upcoming events in Melbourne.  

Hanging out in Hong Kong


Thank you for all those you came to the mixer on 19 June. 

The conversation ranged from who’s going to the Melbourne APMP conference, to where each one was during the HK demonstrations, to what should we do for our next mixer. 

For the next event in August, we would like to get your suggestions! 

Get those creative juices flowing and email Charlie Crawford ( and 
Tania Flanagan ( your suggestions so we can secure the time and place.

Singapore Lunch and Learn

Kick off meetings are a critical part of the proposal process to get right as the impacts from mistakes made early multiply. 

The discussion was broad ranging, including influencing stakeholders, Go/No Go and managing client relationships.
Thanks to Gina Esguerra and John Davies for presenting; also to Aurecon for providing the meeting space.

At our next event in September we plan on presenting highlights from the conference to those who can’t make it to Melbourne this year.

If you’d like to join the Singapore mailing list for future events, please contact Sara Miller, Pitch and Pursuit Excellence Leaders – Asia Pac at Baker McKenzie, at to learn more.

Singapore Networking

Winning work/proposal professionals in Singapore from legal services, construction, Big 4 and real estate …and that was just to get started before the rest of the group arrived!

Canberra Networking

Yes we Canberra. Sharing drinks and proposal stories at the Yacht Club.

The APMP ANZ Chapter had our first ever networking night in Kuala Lumpur on 1 April to help build connections among the proposal community in the broader Asia Pacific region. And what a background at the W Hotel Wet Deck for a group photo! 

Our community in Hong Kong also came together for their first networking night of the year at the Q88 at the JW Marriott. Great to see professionals from real estate and property, professional services, traffic management, and proposal development consulting, all come together to share stories – does it get more diverse than this regarding company types involved in bidding?

If you would like to meet others in your community who are passionate about winning work via bids, pursuits, tenders, proposals and pitches, and frequently travel through or work in Asia Pacific countries outside of Australia where there is no APMP chapter, feel free to get in touch with Sara Miller to see if there are events in your area at
