The Conference opens with a special performance from members
of Butterfly on a Bullet which began in 2012 as an initiative founded by
producer and guitarist, Will Stratton. Entering his 20th year in the Army
after six tours to Afghanistan and Iraq, Will wanted to use the music he created
during and between tours as a way to give back to the military. He intended to
release one single and wrote the song, "Come Home" with singer-songwriter,
Nicole Eaddy, and guest perfomer Kathryn Eaddy. All proceeds from their first single, "Come Home" will be donated to the USO and Operation Homefront.

I have the great fortune to be a regular guest host of that show and the lineup of weekly speakers cover the entire landscape of the federal government. The show provides its viewers incredible insight as to forecasts for the upcoming year across many vertical markets and valuable intel about new capture methodologies that can provide you the competitive advantage. 

Helping federal government contractors "win" contracts by providing best of class market intelligence has been a life's passion of mine. Sharing this knowledge in concert with the tremendous talent we have as guest speakers such as; capture managers, proposal writers and BD professionals that will provide a wealth of knowledge for all attendees. We are honored to work with General Mike Hayes and the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development and the Base Business Inituitive on this symposium.
