MEET THE TEAM

Bid Perfect is less a company and more a collective of like-minded people who are passionate about bidding and helping our customers be more successful.

Our people have worked together for a long time. Our associations and relationships stretch back over three decades. We believe in what we do and we believe in doing it always to the best of our ability.

Speak to the team?
Marcus Eden Ellis

Marcus Eden-Ellis

Founding Director

Prior to founding Bid Perfect, Marcus was Commercial Director for Office Depot in the UK and Ireland. This, along with his previous positions at major companies such as Corporate Express (Director of Global Bids) and Xerox (Sales Director - Local Government) allowed him to develop his outstanding, competitive bid writing skills and win many large national and international contracts. 

Marcus is a highly regarded and sought after speaker on the subject of bids and tenders and he has delivered our training courses throughout the UK and Europe. 

Neal Basson

Neal Basson

Director and Senior Trainer

Neal has a senior sales background. He has worked across several sectors, including office machines, IT hardware, eLearning, and office supplies. For nearly two decades, Neal’s approach to bidding – selling through the written word – has resulted in some hard-fought wins in the UK and internationally.

Prior to becoming an owner/director at Bid Perfect, he worked in the corporate arena for companies such as Canon and Lyreco. However, Neal still demonstrates empathy with smaller and medium sized organisations. His knowledge of the mechanics of sales techniques, coupled with his unerring eye for a winning bid, makes him a valuable senior member of Bid Perfect’s team.

Neal loves the great outdoors and wine. Occasionally, together.

Linda Eden Ellis

Linda Eden-Ellis

Director of Talent Acquisition

Linda works with our clients to deliver a personal and high quality service when extra bid resource is required.

Linda's background is entirely in Talent Acquistion and she has worked across many sectors, securing the right people at the right price (which is the price you want to pay). Linda can secure ad hoc help for a short term position or, at the other end of the scale, she will head hunt the right candidate for a permanent senior role. Once you have given your brief to Linda, she will work with her team to get you the person you want, quickly, efficiently and within your budget.

Rosie Olivia

Rosie Olivia

Recruitment Director

Rosie is the director responsible for the managment and success of our permanent recruitment division. Rosie's ability to spot bid talent is second to none and she has been responsible for finding some exceptional people for our clients. Rosie believes the key to finding the right people for a permanent role is having an excellent relationship with recruiters and an exhaustive understanding of the role to be filled. Matching the right people to job opportunities is as much an art as it is a skill - candidates must also have the right personality to work successfully in certain environments.

Rosie lives in London, has a passion for films, and loves holidaying in Greece.
