Event #1: AFCEA DC AI+ML Technology Summit

Location: Virtual Summit

The Department of Defense (DoD) will harness artificial intelligence (AI) to transform all functions of DoD positively, according to a summary of the Department’s AI strategy. AI, machine learning (ML) and related technologies have great potential to transform how the DoD and national security agencies operate and deliver on their mission—but these technologies also require agencies to think in new ways about technology, policy, and workforce strategies.

Join AFCEA DC for an event that will bring together thought leaders from across DOD, the IC and related agencies to discuss their visions for how AI will support their missions, in such areas as streamlining business processes, accelerated decision-making and improved situational awareness.

Event #4: [Virtual Workshop] Presenting to the Government: Orals Best Practices

Date:  September 17, 2020
Cost: $295
Location: Virtual Workshop

More and more federal agencies are turning to hands-on methods to compete their contracts and evaluate offerors. Though not new, the use of oral presentations as a means of evaluating contractor proposals is on the rise. As more agencies begin adopting this approach to evaluate offerors, companies will need to understand the keys to success with this form of proposal evaluation. When it comes to winning a contract today, it’s more than technical knowledge and experience. Staff and teaming partners must understand the nuances of presentation style, storytelling, and collaboration to effectively convey technical acumen and company culture, all while being responsive and compliant with the Government’s instructions.

During this half-day virtual workshop, attendees will better understand the best practices for preparing and executing traditional oral presentations by focusing on how companies can better organize, plan, and rehearse for PowerPoint, scenario, or interview style orals presentations. This interactive training will give attendees the tools to prepare and execute a traditional orals presentation to the government.

Training Takeaways:

  • Managing the process for an orals presentation
  • Tips on how to communicate clearly
  • Tips on preparing for the unexpected
  • Strategies and best practices for solution development, building content, and developing slides.
  • How to prepare presenters to speak and conduct rehearsals
