Free Webinar for Small Businesses - Leveraging Relationships to Drive your Federal Contracting Goals
Learning how to leverage key relationships is an integral part of the road to government contracting success and becomes increasingly important in a more competitive government contracting environment. As a result, small businesses are working harder to grow their businesses through government contracting. According to a 2011 American Express OPEN government contracting survey, small businesses spent an average of $103,827 in time and resources, up 21 percent from 2010. Despite the increase in investment by small firms, federal contracting spending is flat from 2010. As this trend continues, small businesses need to come up with more ways to make each bid count and to win contracts.
To help business owners leverage key relationships to find contract success in the wake of reduced government spending, American Express OPEN and Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP) are offering a free web tutorial on Thursday, January 26. 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 Mary Scheetz will provide insight and advice on how she used her key relationships to become a successful contractor. This session will provide business owners with information on how to network effectively, find teaming partners and make beneficial connections to help grow their businesses.
