You get a limited amount of time to “speed date” various agencies in their booths at the fair by presenting your abilities to provide services and products to them. In fact, fellow Inner Circle member Scott Turnbaugh of Eagles View Consulting suggests that you prepare a ONE PAGE Capabilities Statement to leave behind after each booth visit. Do not bombard the agency people with a lot of sales materials. Explain clearly and simply how you you can serve them.
