SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT COVID-19
With new opportunities during the rebuild and recovery phase, many of diverse suppliers are turning to PTACs and U.S. SBA resource partners for help with selling their goods and services to government buyers.
With the additional responsibilities of home schooling, caregiving and work demands, your advisors may be stretched. Offer virtual group classes in addition to individual sessions.
Make advising sessions even more productive by giving your clients Action Items to complete on their own and then use advising sessions to focus on strategy rather than government contracting 101.
Stay safe. Be well.
