We've done millions of dollars of business!

We've done millions of dollars of business with the government thanks to so many things Eileen Kent taught me years ago.

Geoff Ladell Finish Line Floors
Our message is now clear....

After taking the three-step, we now understand our marketplace, who we need to call, who we need to reach out to for teaming, what to say, how to track the intelligence as a team and continue to build our strategy based on the contracting data that's available. BUT, Eileen Kent went above and beyond when I called her with a challenge. I wanted to communicate the sustainable solution that Finish Line Floors offers to the federal decision makers who care about being green, and meeting their LEED sustainability goals. She suggested I build a White Board video communicating our message and she even wrote the copy for the video script. Within a month, we had our video produced and a website landing page built and believe me it was well within our small marketing budget! Thanks to Eileen Kent, our message is now clear, concise and full of impact.

Anne Neuville Government Marketing Director Americraft Manufacturing Co., Inc.
She is a "must-have"...

Eileen Kent first worked with Americraft in 2013 when we hired her to perform the three--step program. We never realized that it would take relationships with the electricians on base who would be installing our fans and we didn't realize we needed to build relationships with the customers, so in 2015, we decided to hire a full-time sales rep to execute the plan. Even though it had been 24 months after the three-step, Eileen helped our new team member with an overview of the three-step and has answered her questions promptly. Eileen has proven that supporting her plan and our success in executing it - is her success. We cannot imagine trying to navigate our way through the government arena without her help and would have never been able to get up and running as fast as we did. She is a "must-have" on your team if you plan on being success selling to the federal government!
