Later this week -- on Thursday, to be exact -- American Express OPEN's Victory in Procurement's program is holding a half-day seminar that will teach local businesses "how to effectively market their business to the government by sharing best practices from procurement experts."
Attendees will also get hands-on training on writing sample pitches and getting immediate feedback from panelists. A panel of government buyers also will be on hand to offer advice. All in all, it sounds pretty cool and devotes a lot of time to a specialized topic. Best of all, the workshop, which runs from 9 a.m. 'til noon at 500 N. Kingsbury St., is free.
