Yesterday, American Express sponsored their OPEN for Government Contracting: Summit for Success. This all-day event provided free resources, mentoring and networking opportunities to help small and mid-sized businesses get the insight and experience they need to do business with the world’s largest customer: the U.S. government.
The lunchtime keynote address for the summit featured an inspiring speech from Olympic medalist, Bonnie St. John. Following that speech and a subsequent discussion, American Express presented the Open for Government Contracting Awards, which recognize business owners for their achievements in government contracting.
One of the award recipients at this year’s event was ARServices, and the company’s CEO, Jay McCargo, was on hand to receive the Teaming Partner of the Year Award. Here are some photos from yesterday’s event:
