Free Webinar for Small Businesses - Learning Inside Tips from a Successful Contractor
Navigating the government contracting landscape can be tricky for novice business owners and with constant regulatory and legislative updates, even experienced contractors can take advantage of extra help. Government contracting can be a huge avenue of growth for small businesses. According to an American Express OPEN government contracting survey, almost half – 47% – of active small business contractors have business revenues in excess of $1 million.
To help business owners learn from the best, American Express OPEN and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) are offering a free web tutorial on Wednesday, February 8. This educational webinar is part of the Give Me 5 program, a national program created by American Express OPEN and WIPP to help women business owners get a leg up on selling to the world’s largest customer: the U.S. government.
In this one-hour session, Give Me 5 instructor Barbara English will interview Hester Clark, President of The Hester Group and the 2011 American Express OPEN’s Victory in Procurement Woman Contractor of the Year. Through government contracting – which makes up 90% of the company’s revenues – The Hester Group has grown to become one of the largest African-American, woman-owned strategic communications and program management agencies in Northeast Florida. Hester will share experiences of how she moved her business into the federal contracting area, the lessons learned, challenges she faced and the success that she achieved.
