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.

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.

I had no idea about Buy America and didn’t know all about DBE either. The meeting was very knowledgeable and I thought very well organized as far as how you went into details and made it very easy to listen too. Most informational meetings that I’ve attended lack the personal touch that you incorporated.
I thought the presentation was well worth my time. I understand much better what the BAA and DBE forms are actually used for now.
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.
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.
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.

Thank you for the class! Since I was still mulling over thoughts I had during the class this morning, I would say that it was very well worth the time and effort! I am thinking of ways to keep a running tab on BAA and DBE value during the quotation process. Thank you for the insight on how important these regulations are to our company.
I thought that you did a great job with your presentation. You made good time with all the information that you gave. It is good that you give this to all departments along the Supply Chain, for it makes everyone understand the importance and justify why we do what we do.
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.
