12 Days Until the Election, Oil and Gas Exploration in Alaska, and Marketing Your Business to the Federal Government
October 23, 2008
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
Twelve days until the next "most important election of our lifetime" so we discuss the current status of the Race for the White House and the fight for control of Congress. Then, Kyle Parker joins us from Anchorage where he's an attorney in the field of oil and gas exploration law, as we talk about the legal and political struggle to expand America's domestic energy supplies. Next, American businesses everywhere are looking to increase sales in tough economic conditions so why not sell to the nation's top consumer, the federal government? Mark Cowan, the head of business development at Patton Boggs LLP, where he oversees a thriving practice connecting businesses with the needs of the federal government, discusses how to get your company's services and products on the federal government's radar screen. Finally, we wrap up with emails, calls and commentary on the 2008 election season and the policy changes coming when a new Congress and White House begin work in January.
