Supplier Diversity Professionals:
There are thousands of small businesses that are capable of providing goods and services to your company but often they are not familiar with how to represent their company to larger companies.
Metropolitan Water District (headquartered in Los Angeles) recently granted Guided Business Plan a contract to personalize the GUIDED Sub-Contracting Plan book for their business outreach training program. They intend to give 100 diverse suppliers the tools they need to do business with MWD.
Pilot the GUIDED Sub-Contracting Plan book. Train ten diverse suppliers for as little as $375!
