Well, here's the story of an uncommon win...
For more than 20 years, I was involved in countless intellectual battles against all odds most of the time in the world of bidding in the air-transport industry: major-players against dominant-players; Goliaths vs. Goliaths. Sophisticated technology against more sophisticated ones in the airport world of here and now.
This one, too? No. None of the above. Strictly uncommon.
This one is a ‘little’ David against ‘many’ Goliaths. Moreover, I was approached and asked only 5 working- day before the tender submission.
5 working days instead of 6-week tender effort? And participating in one of Canadian Government Tenders for its IT Professional Services? No! Unreal!
Yet. I was intrigued. I knew something that could be the ‘powerful sling and stones’ for this little David – a newly born start-up in Toronto, Kairos IT Corporation (Head quartered in Jakarta) – who desires to be part of the global arena in the IT outsourcing world.
So, with my freshly minted experience in team coaching, wide-angle lenses, and tacit knowledge in strategic bid management, I enriched Kairos’ tender responses with a NEW HARMONY in the world of IT outsourcing as part of its tender offering. Submitted on 6th March 2023.
A super sweet surprise. A heavenly music to our ears: "WE WON TPS"
Yes, correct. That’s what Laura Chrysanti, CEO Kairos IT Corporation Toronto, wrote on the card sent to me along with flowers and a teddy bear ordered in Toronto delivered in Sydney. “AMAZING!"
To Kairos IT Corporation, CEO Laura Chrysanti and Team:
Thank you. And many CONGRATULATIONS to you and on your FIRST win ever!
You are now officially a global player.
Thank God, for blessing the work of our hands!
May there will be many more wins to come…
Thank you all for reading.
