Grab More Federal Government Contracts

The Wayne Business and Industry Center will offer the free seminar “How to Do Business With the Federal Government” 10 a.m.-noon, Thursday, Nov. 7 in Room 101 of the Walnut Building on Wayne Community College’s main campus in Goldsboro.

The session, led by Boyce Haywood, coordinator of the Military Business Center at Wayne Community College, is designed to let businesses know what resources are available to them through the center and help them take advantage of those resources to increase their federal government contracts.

The seminar will explain how businesses can sell their products and services to federal government agencies such as the Department of Defense, Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Homeland Security, Veterans Administration, and others here in North Carolina and across the country.

This interactive session will cover ways to enhance marketing and outreach effectiveness, lower operational costs, more effectively engage and leverage customers, take advantage of low-cost or no-cost technology, and build brand equity. Case studies of small business successes will be discussed.
