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.
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.
Very good presentation. Clear, precise, to the point.
I thought the topics were relevant to all of our jobs and the presentation was useful. It was the right length and right level of detail. You did a good job explaining the regulations in language we could all understand. The examples helped.
I enjoyed the presentation and how it outlined our limitations for some of these contracts. The “real life” examples always help people understand how it really happens!
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.
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.

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 thought the presentation was well worth my time. I understand much better what the BAA and DBE forms are actually used for now.
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.
