Comments about TargetGov Teleconferences:
I thought the information presented [at the Women in Government Contracting Teleconference] was very informative. I also felt that the speakers were very knowledgeable and gave very good insight as to what to expect. Their discussions on what worked for them or did not work for them was helpful.
The resources in the toolkit are outstanding. Often times you get a lot of information but do not know where to go or who to call. The resources provide helpful names, contacts, addresses etc.. that would help in establishing connections and finding the right people to network with.
Gloria did an excellent job. She had specific points in mind and she covered them. It was easy to follow along. I would like to see further teleconferences like this, possibly on a more detailed level.
