February 2020 | GovCon CGO Roundtable

When something works, why not do it again.  We held our second roundtable.  It was hosted by NuAxis Innovations and boy was it a lively discussion.  The topic of the day was Understanding the Millennials (those born between 1980 – 1995 : 25 – 40 years old).  It was a great discussion, and everyone learned from the millennials in the room.  Here’s what we learned:


BLUF (bottom line up front): get with the program!  Times are changing and so is society.  Traditionalists (born before 1947), Baby boomers (1947 – 1964) and generation Xers (1964 – 1980) should not keep thinking, this is how we do it and it works this way.  It does work with your generation, but your generation is moving up or out, and this generation is the new boss, employee, peer and customer.  Learn how to interact with them and you grow right along with them.  


Lots of more information.  Reach out and we will share all the findings.

We decided to expand this offering.  We have applied for a trademark and are going to grow this popular networking opportunity.  Stay tuned for more news!

November 2019 | Busy Month for Bid2Win

We had lots of excitement here this month.  Helene participated in the Homeland Security Reverse Industry Day as a BD person in a skit about Show Me Don't Tell Me acquisitions.  It was a wonderful opportunity to provide feedback to the agency acquisition staff on how a company makes bid decisions.  

We also published our Service Catalog!  We are so excited to identify what services we provide to the federal industry market.

Other activities will appear once complete but as a hint, we will be teaching two courses in the upcoming BD Cap Com conference and we will be helping out with the AFFIRM golf tournament.  Pictures to come!

Vendors were on hand to hear how they can improve their products and services to help the companies grow.  This will be an ongoing forum and meetings will be held every 4 months.  All Growth Leaders are welcome.
