What a fantastic experience! Thank you to everyone at the Department of Energy’s Small Office of Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) and the event team.
From a professional speaker’s perspective, the event team was flawless, the folks at the OSDBU were helpful and always available, and the attendees were fun and lively.
I was honored to be delivering the opening keynote for the 15th Annual Department of Energy (DOE) Small Business Forum & Expo in Atlanta May 23 to 25 (read the background blog).
“AWAKEN THE STORYTELLING GIANT IN YOU”
Description: What if the right story inspired your company’s targeted program, site office, or laboratory to add your company to their team? What if the right story persuaded the small business program manager to invite you to hear your ideas and company’s capabilities? What if the right story prompted the small business program manager or contracting officer to recommend your company? What difference could that right story mean to your company? Join Ira for a lively and insightful keynote on how to turn your experiences into powerful stories that engage and inspire stakeholders throughout the DOE Community.

In preparing for “Treat Everyone Like a CEOTM,” Earl Morgan (thanks again!) and I put out 950 playing cards at 5:30am–one on everyone’s chair!
Here I am explaining the rules of the business exercise.
