Session Description

How Building A Great Team Saved New Orleans

General Andrew Jackson (the future President) hastily assembled an army to defend New Orleans at the end of the War of 1812, and his example can provide valuable insights into assembling a great proposal team. He was outnumbered 3-to-1 by veteran British troops, but the key to Jackson's victory was bringing together a balanced force, choosing a defensible position, and providing adequate support to withstand a much larger adversary. Gain a fresh perspective about building your proposal team, and learn some pivotal history about our host city.
