Olessia Smotrova-Taylor, OST’s President and Chief Executive Officer, presented “Six Strategies to Grow Your Business with the Treasury” as a speaker at the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Small Business Outreach in May. More than a hundred of businesses, government representatives, and others attended the outreach event.
The Treasury Department hosts the Small Business Outreach to promote dialogue about the importance of having small businesses invest in their capacity to compete for Federal contracts. It brings together representatives across the small business industry in order to “highlight investment practices, capacity building strategies and opportunities to add value within Treasury.” (Click here for more information about the Small Business Outreach.)
Olessia’s presentation provided detailed strategies that will help businesses of all sizes grow their Federal portfolios and develop reliable Federal business pipelines. Among the topics that she covered are:
- What growth rate a healthy government contractor should aim for
- Understanding the business development lifecycle
- Employing a strategic business development planning process
- Developing and fostering a robust pipeline
- Establishing practical and repeatable processes
- Training your workforce to morph into a sales force
- Building up and measuring your business development organization
