Hear from Mr. Kevin Linden, Defense Acquisition University, as he discusses key innovative small business initiatives and the mission imperative of the Small Business professional as an integral member of the acquisition team. Hear about key programs and initiatives that support the program and the DoD’s efforts to improve small business participation in both prime contracting and subcontracting.
Learn the best proposal development strategies from one of the best in the business. Mr. John Demmon will leverage his many years of experience to demonstrate award-winning practices and procedures for those seem-to-be-complex requirements. John will help you cut through the complexities to highlight processes that do not have to be overwhelming--or stifling.
Ms. Judith Stackhouse-Jordan will amaze you as she navigates the way through the GSA maze to support your endeavors for success. This will be beneficial to you as a small business looking to expand in the federal realm or one who is simply seeking a small business to support an upcoming requirement. As there are a myriad of methods available to businesses who want to sell to the federal government as primes or subcontractors, there are also tools and technologies to facilitate the process and enhanced opportunities. Hear from a renowned expert on how to take advantage of key marketing strategies; and partnerships between small, disadvantaged businesses with seasoned GSA prime contractors, all which could make the difference for you in 2012.
Last, but surely not least, hear about the 8a vendor that grows up and graduates to success. Though maybe a scary proposition, the tag-team of Ms. Carly Cox and Ms. Fran O’Connor discuss life after 8a, and how the journey of the 8a has actually been a success in the making! You will want to tune into this presentation as they surmise the success traits and development strategies of the 8a vendor who seeks to leverage experience for the greater good. Both dynamic and informative, a must-hear discussion to wrap up the day.
