Regardless of advances in technology, effective communications remain critical in a Government contract setting.  Join Tim Sullivan and Stephen Yuter as they discuss some of the problems they frequently encounter, how to deal with those problems, and how to avoid them in the future.  Our speakers will break the Government contracting process into three distinct phases: Pre-Proposal, the Proposal Process, and Post-Award. Specifically, they will focus on the communications challenges in each phase and the best practices for overcoming them.  They will discuss the most effective means of communication for each particular problem, the importance of tone, and the need to understand your audience.  In these three 90-minute programs Tim and Stephen will discuss:
