We engaged NB1 Consulting for their objective thinking and pragmatism in reviewing tenders submissions. We presented them with a challenging deadline, and were thoroughly impressed with not only the quick turnaround but the high quality of output. Noel delivered exactly what we asked for, in a manner exceeding expectation.

Noel has been a key part of our relationship building process in Belfast. Noel has a huge network of trusted relationships throughout Northern Ireland and has been integral in giving us a platform to communicate our vision and abilities to key stakeholders for our existing and potential projects.

Noel is a very enthusiastic person who is deeply knowledgeable and experienced in bis writing. He takes time to get to know the business operation and helps businesses of all sizes to be able to put down what they do in a succinct way that the buying organisation can understand. For us, that was our most difficult task before Noel came in. He works with a smile as he is passionate about helping businesses win more work. We have continued to use NB1 for the last 8 years and will continue long into the future.

The other thing about NB1 which we found useful was the business network connections. Noel is quick to think about how his clients can work collaboratively and is excellent at making introductions.

Napier & sons worked with Noel in compiling and submitting a tender for legal services to a large multinational company with a place of business in Northern Ireland . His insight into this process enabled us to identify strengths which we took for granted. The advice received was first class, relevant, concise and extremely professional. Noel’s ability to set out tender documents and assist in drafting motivated professional and administrative alike. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to any other firm other than our competitiors!

We engaged Noel’s services in July 2009 after he was recommended to us by another SME. Since then he has helped us refine our sales strategy and messages, develop our tendering process, build a strategic network, and has guided us through our first full scale public sector procurement resulting in the award of a major contract.

Noel has tremendous personal knowledge and experience of what is required to win work, and an extensive network of contacts enabling him to secure high level meetings with key players. His refreshingly straightforward, honest and enthusiastic approach focused on our needs and on achieving our objectives.

Olenick first engaged Noel Brady in 2015 when we began to look at opportunities within the Northern Ireland market. We kicked off with a discovery workshop amongst our senior management team that enabled us to put together a sales strategy for the local public and private sectors. Over the last number of years Noel has made introductions to key players that has lead to a number of tender opportunities. His expertise in proposal writing and the assistance provided to our bid team resulted in a significant success within one of our key business verticals. Noel continues to provide Olenickwith strategic sales support as we continue to expand our service delivery within Northern Ireland.



Noel has been my personal mentor for the past 8 months. During this time Noel has provided me with valuable advice and guidance, both as the CEO of a very successful charity and at a personal level (ensuring I am achieving an important work/life balance). In addition, Noel has taught me the trade of tendering for contracts - with PEACE IV two tenders submitted and secured for £45,413 and £55,068 (total £100,481). It should be noted that thanks to Noel, both tenders received a score of 100 out of 100!

Noel has been my critical friend and has helped me reflect on my role as a CEO and all the responsibility that goes along with running a Northern Ireland charity. Thank you Noel for just being amazing.

Noel has worked with us on various occasions over the last number of years assisting in our market positioning and strategic growth.

For an SME it is a bonus to have access to an experienced person who can help discuss, challenge and establish strategy which in turn results in continued success.

He has built an excellent rapport with myself as CEO and my team and we have developed a number of important areas of our business with his help.
