“A powerhouse training for Small Business Liaison Officers. Put on your thinking cap and join the group for energetic sessions and conversation.”
“This training is excellent for attendees of all levels. The instructors are excellent and committed to the small business cause, as are each of the attendees.”
“This class will give you the background and tools needed to build your Supplier Diversity Program within your organization. It is a must-have for new and experienced Small Business Liaison Officers to not only gain the information needed to succeed as a professional but to meet others and network along the way.”
“This was one of the best professional training programs I have taken. Thorough, engaging and relevant!”
“I am the VP of Supply Chain for a company that builds automation and tooling for aerospace. We recently went from being a small business to being classified as large overnight. In order to satisfy the flow down requirements of our customers, we needed to get training on how to properly establish this protocol within our organization. This class was very helpful in getting us on the way.”
“I am so thankful my organization values our Small Business Diversity program and encouraged us to take this course! I could not have asked for a better learning experience! I have been a designated Small Business Liaison Officer for seven years now and there was a great mix of refresher material and new material that I don’t deal with all of the time; plus, they highlighted new and upcoming changes! Best 2 1/2 days of training!!!”
“This is the most extensive, beneficial training I have attended to date as it pertains to my role as Small Business Liaison Officer. So glad I found ASDP!!”
“If you are a newly assigned Small Business Liaison Officer, or have been mandated to fulfill the Small Business Liaison Officer role, then this course is for you. The Alliance of Supplier Diversity Professionals offers the tools to increase your confidence in your new role. They also offer networking opportunities so that you can communicate with other people in your industry and never feel alone. Spread the word. ASDP’s guide to program excellence is a must for all Small Business Liaison Officers.”
“The overall training was excellent, including the energy level and knowledge of the instructors. I learned a lot from the training.”
“The ASDP training was intense and provided an in-depth explanation of rules and regulations that must be abided by. It gave us opportunities to network with other professionals, providing a strong connection to others in similar careers. I thoroughly enjoyed the class!”
“My 4th time re-certifying. I always learn something new. The trainers are great and the subjects pertinent and well presented. Great networking options, as well.”
“The classroom instruction fostered focus on the material and dialog with other students. In-depth discussions and problem solving while in a group setting was very stimulating. The instructors were seasoned practitioners with a wealth of knowledge and experience. The bonus was developing a larger peer group of small business advocates that understand the challenges and rewards of supplier diversity.”
“I truly cannot praise you all enough for this training, I thought it was one of the best I’ve attended! So with this certification what does it come with? My team is looking for some individual training if that might be possible? We have had a lot of turn over, changes within the organization which come with lots of intercompany spend etc and these group trainings are great but we have specific questions that don’t generally get answered. Would that be a possibility? Would we be able to reach out when we have a request we need to respond to for an individual plan? We haven’t had much experience with them but seem to be getting more and more. If this is a possibility please let me know how to go about getting this help. Thank you again!”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the training and felt it was the best SBLO training I had attended to date. Each one of the trainers were so knowledgeable and easy to understand and follow along with. I learned a lot of new information in each of the training topics which was great and very helpful for our current program. I also looked forward each day to game! I thought this was a fun way to break up the instructor lead training and gave us an opportunity to ensure that we understood each topic.”
“I was impressed with all the trainers and grateful that they are devoting themselves to broadening the education of those of us that have little to no experience; and quite often, there’s no one in our organization that can train us. The varied styles (of the trainers) kept each training-day fresh and interesting.”
“Even as a seasoned Federal Small Business Liaison Officer, I learned a great deal from this training. I was also inspired by my peers and I am excited to introduce several of their successful initiatives at my own company. The instructors are very knowledgeable and even though the days were long they found a way to make them enjoyable. ASDP is a wonderful organization and I look forward to exploring the myriad of benefits they offer.”
“One of the most captivating and informative trainings I have ever attended. The instructors are not only informed and passionate, they also work to ensure you learn and retain the information. Highly recommend this training.”
