If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

Kevin welcomes special guest Brian Butler to discuss the power of building relationships in the government contracting world.

Brian Butler is President and CEO of Vistra Communications (www.consultvistra.com), a communications strategy and professional solutions agency providing communications and management solutions to corporate, government and nonprofit organizations.

A retired and decorated career military officer, Brian has provided Public Relations, Strategic Communications, Marketing, and Management Consulting services to senior leaders and their organizations for nearly three decades. Prior to founding Vistra, Brian provided Strategic Communications counsel to senior leaders at U.S. Central Command in Tampa, FL. He also served in a director-level policy position on the Homeland Security Council (HSC) in the White House.

Listen and learn from Brian’s experiences with the 80/20 rule, our favorite way to describe the relative importance and balance between process and relationships in a specific acquisition.
