GovBrief makes it easy for you to reach key decision-makers and stakeholders in government and industry. We accomplish this by establishing you as a subject matter expert with in your field of expertise. We will research the government initiatives that apply to your industry and help you connect three key points that you want your audience as takeaways.

Key Steps

  • Initiatives and Regulation Research
  • Presentation Assistance

Your key takeaways are incorporated in an agenda that is sent to invitees. Using email and phone call follow ups, we encourage interested parties to register for your briefing. During the briefing we ask people questions to determine what the stakeholders need from you.

Following the briefing we send out the briefing recap information to all interested parties and schedule face-to-face and follow up phone meetings to address specific needs and requirements.

Can I use my own email lists?

Yes when two conditions are met. First they have to be business contacts not consumer emails. Second, they have to be valid prospects that you have contacted or requested information from you.


Can I use my own presentation?

That depends. The GovBrief process is designed as an educational platform not a sales platform. The objective is to use industry best practices or new technologies as the foundation of your presentation. Using this methodology you are bringing important information to the key stakeholders. Your company and contact information will be in the presentation so you will get the credit for bringing that knowledge and be remembered when they make a decision based on your technology or best practices.


What is the lead time?

Minimum lead-time for your first briefing is 30 days. It takes about three weeks to do the research for your contacts, and create your briefing agenda and invites. Once you have conducted a briefing and we know who your audience is, we can create briefings with invites in as little as two weeks. Urgent briefings can be scheduled in shorter notice with approval.


What do I need to be a panelist for my briefing?

First, you need to know what you are talking about… Then, in most cases you have what you need in your laptop or even smart phone. You need to have a computer with a webcam, a decent microphone and a good Internet connection with at least 1.7Mbps. Click here to check your speed www.speedtest.net.
