Nice job. While I had some familiarity with both BAA and DBE/WBE/MBE, I learned a lot. Gotta agree with you. Your approach, providing candid insight, is a welcomed change. Thanks for taking the time to enlighten us and keep us in synch with the business needs.

It was a pleasure to attend this training. I commend you on a job well done. You are a natural presenter and the message was clear and very informative. I took a LOT away from the class. Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend.

I feel that you did an excellent job in your presentation. It was well thought out, very well presented and contained very valuable and useful information. Thanks for the info!
Was it worth my time? Absolutely. I have heard of DBE and Buy America, but have not really been given any training on how complex the subjects are. The training was extremely helpful to me for making decisions as an IE can directly affect DBE and possibly Buy America. The training has given me another tool that I can reference to make smart decisions.
I thought your workshop was very well done. I think it should be mandatory for everyone who deals with bids, purchasing, and marketing or directly with our suppliers.
I enjoyed the presentation this a.m. very much. You have a great command of the facts and a broad knowledge of the subject. The pace and timing was right on target. Well done.
Many thanks for the presentation. It was a complicated subject, simply given and I enjoyed it. I particularly liked the enthusiasm and passion with which it was given.
I thought you did a good job covering such complex subjects, especially for persons having no exposure to these regulations. Your past efforts to educate union leadership were a good idea. Having rank and file understand, at least in a basic way, is beneficial.

The training session was indeed helpful. From an engineer’s/designer’s standpoint seeing how complex and challenging this issue really is, I believe will be helpful in developing specifications and drawing documents which in the end provide sufficient detail along with a narrowed definition of the products and systems which may be procured from a DBE supplier.
The presentation was very good. I think it will be an excellent presentation for new personnel, but also a good one to have for a “refresher” session. Good job.
