Our key services include:

  • Project development and management
  • Evaluation
  • Marketing

  • Funding & grant applications
  • Tender writing

Project development and management

project management

Impulsion Consulting can provide high level project development and management expertise to maximise the impact of your project. Whether it’s developing a new idea into a comprehensively designed project plan or to provide an analysis of an existing project design for refinement, we have the tools and experience to take your project to the next level.

Using a step-by-step approach, we can assist you to:

  • Take your idea from a basic concept to a fully designed project
  • Critically review existing project design to identify problems and improvements
  • Complete formal documentation of project plans for enhanced communication and attraction of funding…helping you to tell your story
  • Develop practical and integrated approaches to embedding monitoring, evaluation, reporting and communication into each aspect of your project


The principles of evaluation and project logic are valuable throughout each stage of a project - from planning through to implementation and review. At Impulsion Consulting we encourage clients to be closely involved and have achieved particularly solid results from a collaborative approach to evaluation planning. Rather than a “one-size-fits-all” approach, we work with clients to develop a tailored approach to evaluation that is practical and realistic and meets their individual needs. Often, our clients know what they want to discover but don’t know what questions to ask or how to approach the evaluation.

Impulsion Consulting can provide assistance in the following areas:

  • Development of monitoring, reporting and evaluation frameworks
  • Critical review of existing project documentation and evaluation plans
  • Completion of independent evaluation and reviews of your project or program

Evaluation projects recently completed by us...

  • Evaluation of the Victorian Bushfire Information Line IVR
  • Evaluation framework for DEPI’s Trade and Investment division (October 2014)
  • Program logic for United Way Ballarat’s “Imagination Library” program (February 2014)

For many organisations, navigating the pathway to securing project funds can be daunting and time consuming.

Our inside knowledge of how the ‘system’ works including assessment processes, evaluation criteria and our understanding of the investment priorities of many funding organisations can help you carefully target your project proposals and grant applications.

We can provide expertise in the following areas:

  • designing a clear and logical project

Tender writing

For many small to medium sized businesses, responding to tenders and requests for quotes are a necessary but time consuming task. Writing a competitive tender that ensures your business stands out from other businesses is a critical factor in winning contracts. Writing a winning tender doesn’t just mean offering the lowest price. Most organisations are seeking confidence that the supplier or contractor will provide a quality service, often with value-added benefits.

Impulsion Consulting has extensive experience in all aspects of tendering and has a track record of assisting businesses to win contracts in a broad range of industry sectors. Regardless of the size or nature of the tender, we can provide the following assistance:

  • Understanding the specifications
  • Evaluating whether the business has the capability
  • Development of all documentation
  • Assistance with costing/quoting
  • Proofreading of documentation
  • Submission processes
