Pre-Summit Training Registration
Our pre-summit training kicked off on September 5, 2018 and continues monthly leading up to the summit on February 26, 2019.
Too often, many attend events ill prepared, not intentionally, but because no one offers pre-summit training to get prepared.
We want you to be procurement ready, connect, learn, secure contracts and create jobs!
All of our pre-summit training sessions will be held at the venue we will have our 2019 summit. So that all attendees get a sense of the logistics of the summit venue location.
To kick off our pre-summit training is our well know DGS Guest Wayne Gross. Wayne is dedicated and doesn't sugar coat what you need to do to sell to the state of California.
Make sure you sign up for our first of six pre-summit training sessions so that you are PROCUREMENT READY to attend our 2019 summit.
