Welcome to the StoverTeam Blog!
Stover has been in business for more than 20 years and we’ve been learning from our experiences all along the way. A few years ago we had the opportunity to develop and teach business development workshops across the country through a contract with the Small Business Administration. We’re in our third year now and have thoroughly enjoyed helping small businesses to compete and grow their companies.
We decided to enter the “blogosphere” to allow us to continue our relationship with the small business owners we’ve met along the way and to increase our reach to include small businesses that we aren’t able to encounter in our SBA workshops.
We hope to fill these pages with information that will provoke thought and the sharing of ideas. Our desire is that through this exchange, small businesses will learn and, in turn, share their insights so that we all can grow and succeed.
To get us started, the primary blogger will be Chris Strudthoff, Communications Manager, with assists from some of the home office staff:
- Frank Lane, President, Senior Instructor
- Tom Stover, Founder of Stover & Associates, Senior Instructor
- Jim Dickensheets, Vice President, Senior Instructor
- Phyllis Embree, Project Manager/Analyst
- Michelle Ingram, Financial Manager
Since our greatest strength is in Federal Government Acquisition, we plan to share tips and techniques for marketing, proposal development and negotiating for federal work. We’ll discuss changes to the FAR and current trends in federal contracting.
We’ll also share general business topics related to management, financial management and human resources.
Every once in a while we may even mix it up with a little good-hearted humor. I can’t wait to see the look on Frank’s face when he finds out we have a BLOG!!!!!
We invite your comments or questions. Thanks for giving us a read!
