    Background: What's a Wingman?

    According to the U.S. Air Force, the traditional military definition of a "Wingman" refers to the pattern in which fighter jets fly. There is always a lead aircraft and another which flies off the right wing of and behind the lead. This second pilot is called the "Wingman" because he or she primarily protects the lead by "watching his back."

    More specifically, the wingman's role is to add an element of mutual support to aerial combat. The presence of a wingman makes the flight both offensively and defensively more capable by increasing firepower and situational awareness, permitting the attack of enemies, and increasing the ability to employ more dynamic tactics.

    Launched in 2014, our GovCon Wingman™ program is a mature, viable and potent resource activity for business leaders and professionals in federal contracting. Since inception, the profiles of companies participating in GovCon Wingman™ includes those who:

    ·         support federal civilian, defense and intelligence agency missions as contractors and subcontractors;

    ·         have offerings that include goods, services and research and development, and;

    ·         generate annual revenues of less than $1 million to greater than $20 million.

    Our GovCon Wingman™ partners tell us the benefits they realize include:

    ·         better decision-making capabilities;

    ·         achievement of intended outcomes;

    ·         recognition and mitigation of risk factors;

    ·         business development-related cost savings;

    ·         more clarity of the opportunity and competitive landscape in federal contracting;

    ·         tangible business growth.

    About the GovCon Wingman™ Roundtables and the Discovery Sessions:

    We've received a number of inquiries regarding a peer exchange and education group based on the GovCon Wingman™ program and would like to discuss it with business leaders in order to shape a program of merit. During the Discovery Sessions we will solicit feedback regarding:

    ·         the frequency and duration of meetings;

    ·         the content of meetings;

    ·         key outcomes of the programs;

    ·         the balance of peer exchange vs facilitator presentations vs formal education activities;

    ·         support outside of roundtable meetings;

    ·         participant make-up;

    ·         and more.

    Participation in the Discovery Sessions is limited to principals and executives of U.S. companies eligible to enter into contracts and subcontracts with the U.S. Government and its contractors. Registration is limited to one representative per company.

    A light breakfast will be served at the complimentary session.

    Session registration limit is 15 business leaders.

    Finding and winning federal contracts and subcontracts requires good decision-making.

    Good decision-making demands targeted data and information, market insights, relationships and a level of context to understand how each of these pieces fits together. 

    Why? To achieve  accurate and timely development of answers to questions ranging from, “Who buys?” and “How do they buy?” to “Which teammates?” and “Bid or no-bid?” 

    Ethical Stalking for Government Contractors™ Essentials 2-Day Bootcamp is comprehensive training that delivers practical information-in-context for reducing and eliminating the mystery of doing business with U.S. civilian, defense and intelligence agencies.

    If you are:

    • an executive who develops and implements company growth strategies;
    • an executive or professional who identifies, qualifies, pursues and responds to contract and subcontract opportunities;
    • administrative staff supporting market research, pipeline management and marketing efforts;
    • from a government agency and would like this information to better identify viable industry partners;

    you should attend this program at your earliest opportunity.

    By design, this program guides participants to understand: what information is needed; why it’s needed; where to find it; how to use it and more. The goal is increasing their ability to make or support decisions in choosing the path best suited to the capabilities and objectives of their companies.

    Just as every company is unique in how it plans and executes elements of the business development life cycle, every company has different resources to utilize in conducting marketing, business development, capture management and proposal management. The Essentials 2-Day Bootcamp empowers individuals with proven knowledge, skills and confidence needed to fuel these activities and drive growth for companies of 1 to 200.

    Each Essentials 2-Day Bootcamp discusses:

    • tenets and outcomes of the business development life cycle;
    • understanding data, information, knowledge and intelligence;
    • managing opportunity information;
    • controlling and reducing the cost of acquiring business;
    • where information comes from;
    • what information is needed;
    • what questions need to be answered;
    • the meanings of government contracting data and terminologies;
    • buyers versus sellers and knowing the difference;
    • federal agency award types;
    • and more.

    Additionally, the integrated Brick Building Opportunity provides participants with ongoing hands-on opportunities to leverage the tactics, tools and context conveyed by the Bootcamp Instructor. Each session presents attendees with useful information on a host of government-owned systems available to the public that are specifically relevant to executing portions of the business development life cycle. During and outside of the Brick Building Opportunity activities, the Bootcamp Instructor will assist participants with accessing, bookmarking and exploiting four to six of the systems during scheduled deep dives. Attendees are required to bring a personal computing device to participate in these activities.

    Each interactive ESGC Bootcamp program is limited to 15 participants.

    The registration fee includes course materials, Pre-Bootcamp Breakfast and lunch for one (1) participant for both days of the Bootcamp.

    Finding and winning federal contracts and subcontracts requires good decision-making, and good decision-making demands targeted data and information, market insights, relationships and a level of context to understand how each of how each piece fits together to develop the most clear picture of:

    • Who buys?
    • How do we become visible to them?
    • How do they buy? 
    • How do we demonstrate we are viable?
    • Should we pursue?
