Fiscal Year Insights (FYI) Sessions

What Are Fiscal Year Insights?  

Let's start with the most important word in that phrase, and that is insights. Insight is the ability to have a clear and deep understanding of a complicated problem or situation. Insights you develop are of great value to someone who has not achieved that level of understanding. This is why we invite Federal Contracting thought leaders to join in the Bash festivities. We invite them to share their insights with Bash-goers like you, leverage the great atmosphere and GovCon networking while ringing in the new fiscal year! 

Fiscal Year Insights (FYI) Sessions - Format 

Each speaker will host an interactive 20-minute discussion with Bash-goers. We'll have 3 rooms running concurrently, so you'll have to decide what topics are most important to you, or make sure you bring a friend (or two) so you can divide, conquer and share notes later.  You'll have an opportunity to pre-select your sessions during registration, but don't worry you can come back later and update your selections if you change your mind.  It's the gems shared during these FYI Sessions that makes the Fiscal New Year's Bash much more than a GovCon networking mixer.  (Note: If you register for the event prior to speakers being confirmed, we will send you an email and you can return to your registration to make your speaker selections.)

This Year's Topics 

We are bringing a great mix of topics and discussions for this year's Bash! Our FYI facilitators are from Industry and Government (almost a 50/50 mix!) and will share insights with you in the areas of: 

  • Winning Your First and Next Contract 
  • Boosting Your Business Development 
  • How One Piece of Knowledge Made the Difference
  • Being Intentional with Federal Sector Growth
  • Gaining Traction with Agency Buyers and Customers 
  • Knowing When and How to Leverage the FSS/MAS 
  • How Agencies are Transforming Engagement with Industry 

and More!
