  • Incentives can come from many sources. Obtaining them is only part of what I do. Equally important is developing a plan to maximize benefits by creating a compelling presentation. There are hundreds of projects out there. My role is to make each project unique and easily chosen for incentives.
  • Projects should follow a sequence of actions. A business plan and clear goals of the project are two examples of pieces that need to be in place.
  • I can give examples of past incentives from other projects. My references can speak to the quality of my work.
  • The company must be willing to share basic plans and information about a project.
  • My work is based on two issues: relationships and information. My history is bringing quality projects to government officials. Information of all current options for incentives is also part of my skill set.
