- “On February 26, 2013, I had the pleasure of attending Centre Consulting’s 5 1/2 hour class titled “Annual Review 2013 – Hot Issues in Federal Contracting” in San Jose, CA. Jim’s “Hot Issues in Federal Contracting” class is definitely worth the price of admission! The presentation was professionally delivered, relevant, well organized, engaging, entertaining and fast paced. In addition to distilling the important details of new procurement laws and regulations, Jim provided thoughtful analysis, insights and courses of action to help businesses comply and remain competitive under these new laws and regulations. I strongly believe the “Hot Issues” class is a great way to stay current in our profession.” - Jeff Cuskey, Monterey Bay PTAC
- “My reasons for attending the annual review are many. My first impressions of Jim and Barb (and their associates who also present) were that they were down-to-earth fully knowledgeable professionals who could bring life and encourage discussion about what some may perceive to be a tedious topic – various aspects of federal government procurement. Clearly, my first impression was correct! The annual review is also a great place to hear different perspectives on a given issue from government contractors in different industries, and from government representatives. Jim and Barb have both been very responsive to inquiries (outside of the sessions themselves) I’ve made of them, both specific to topics they have covered at the annual reviews and beyond. ” - Bob Handy, Westat, Inc.
- “The Annual Review was excellent. Well prepared subject matter experts. Continued to engage the audience and made them part of the discussions.” – Jack Nichols, GS5, Inc.
- “Your team Rocks! It’s refreshing to see such a competent team with one organization.” – Threase Baker, ABBTECH
- “Extremely helpful training. Well-paced and presented by a a great team – just the right mix of what has happened, what is happening and what is going to happen down the road. This is the first training I have ever taken where 100% of what was planned to be presented was actually covered – very disciplined approach and delivery. I will be back and recommend this to others. Thank you!” – Wayne Simpson, FedBizAssist, LLC
- “Due to its nature, this seminar encourages networking and much diverse discussion since attendees have such varied backgrounds and Schedule types. There’s something for everyone and a great opportunity to learn.” – Mary Beth Kuderna, Benjamin Moore
