This class focuses on Bids & Proposals (What are they? Are they different? How do I find the opportunities? What do I do when I find one? What else should I be aware of?). Within this GovCon 101 seminar, we work with you to “demystify” how to execute successfully in developing business in the Government marketspace. You will find it is not for the “faint of heart,” but with a few basics, and some hard work, you can become successful. Balancing your business portfolio with Government business can diversify your future revenue and growth, and we provide a “101” level to know where to start, and the basics of taking steps to move forward successfully.
