“I want you to know how much I and the attendees at the government contracts seminar on Thursday appreciated, enjoyed and were well-informed on best strategies and approaches for winning government contracts.
Your talk was extremely well-received. From the feedback I received, I think most if not all of the 70+ attendees thoroughly enjoyed and benefited with specific “take away” points to apply to their respective “business development” roles – regardless of their official or formal business titles!”

Director of Contracts, Meggitt (Thomson Aerospace & Defense) & Conference Organizing Board

“I cannot thank you enough for such an inspiring presentation at our 15th Annual Leadership Colloquium here at UMW. I continue to hear from women who attended and were “wowed” by your thoughts, stories, C’s, guidance, and overall leadership concepts. It was quite impressive. I have personally been struck by comments you made that come back to me each day… and that I share with others. We learned much from your presentation, and are grateful to you for sharing your expertise with us. I hope our paths will cross again.”

“Ms. Fordwich was a guest speaker in our Women’s Entrepreneurial Leadership class, composed of MBA and undergraduate students at George Washington University. She gave a speech to a class of approximately 50 students, we were taken aback by her level of professionalism, wisdom, and her expert knowledge regarding business development. Her tips and advice were extremely insightful and have proved fruitful to all the young and future entrepreneurs in the class. Many students and myself included, praised her speech and immediately purchased the books she recommended to us. She has left a lasting impression on many of us and despite her speech which was five weeks ago, we continue to talk about her and cite her work frequently. Ms. Fordwich has defined and shaped the way in which I approach my future, my own startup business, and I am certain that her principles will continue to influence and guide my future decisions and actions.”
