TestimonialsNEAL Consulting Solutions
I was referred to Dave Neal, Managing Director of NEAL Consulting Solutions at a point when Thales Australia was anticipating the release of a request for tender (RFT) to the open market by the Australian Government for the provision of an Event Management System (EMS) and Associated Services for the G20 Australia 2014. Following the subsequent release of the open tender for G20 Australia by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, it was evident that Dave’s experience and knowledge in the field of major events would be of particular value to Thales. Dave’s engagement with Thales continued into the RFT response phase as a member of the Thales Bid Team for this project, where his knowledge of the Commonwealth Procurement Rules and procurement processes were of significant assistance to the bid. In particular, Dave’s contribution to the response process and his subject matter expertise in relation to the core requirements of the RFT, namely; EMS software, secure online event registration, accreditation and credential production in addition to electronic access control and ‘in-venue’ access control measures, was a significant factor in being able to submit a quality bid response to the client and ultimately in Thales winning this important government contract. Dave’s professional and affable nature makes him a pleasure to work with. His attention to detail, customer service focus and ethical values are held in high regard by Thales. I highly recommend Dave’s services to the market.
