Finding and Winning Simplified Acquisitions! at USDOE’16 in Atlanta

Thanks to everyone who attended my sessions at the 2016 Department of Energy Small Business Conference in Atlanta. ‘Finding and Winning Simplified Acquisitions’ is one of my favorite programs and I appreciate the wonderful and sincere feedback like this note I received today:

Hello Guy,

Thanks for attending the DOE Small Business Expo. As a very new business, I found your presentation to be the most useful I attended. I gained more practical, actionable information in 2 hours with you than I had in 10 hours of local SBDC courses. As an engineer, I particularly appreciated the fact that you backed up your recommendations with real data. As a business owner, I liked the overview on how to find details that offer an real competitive advantage: Who’s buying? What are they buying? From whom? How much are they currently paying? I’m afraid I can’t offer much in the way of constructive criticism; I’m not yet familiar enough with the government contracting landscape to evaluate the content of your presentation. From the perspective of a newbie to the industry, I can’t think of a single thing you should change.

Best Regards,
