Presented by Collette Portis, CEO of RED Development Group, this dynamic and insightful workshop is for businesses seeking to increase their capacity to obtain and serve government and corporate contracts. This concise yet powerful workshop delves into the crucial art of enhancing organizational capabilities.

We'll begin with an operational assessment that provides a snapshot of how your organization is performing. Portis will guide you through answering each question of the assessment, so you can receive personalized results immediately. Portis will then help you understand your results and provide practical strategies to fortify skills, knowledge, and infrastructure, enabling your company to tackle larger contracts and unlock new revenue streams.

With real-world examples and actionable tips, this workshop empowers entrepreneurs and business leaders to transform their teams into high-performing, adaptable units. As an established and growing enterprise, this workshop illuminates the path to expansion and prosperity by harnessing the often-overlooked potential within your organization. Unleash your capacity, secure bigger contracts, and elevate your revenue with this invaluable resource.

Collette Portis
Founder, CEO, Fractional COO, and Award Winning Master Business Coach
RED Development Group

As Founder, CEO, Fractional COO, and Award Winning Master Business Coach of RED Development Group, Collette has proven that her entrepreneurial roots run deep. It is these roots that have helped her to take her company from $0 revenue to more than 6 figures in just 9 months.

With 30 years of experience as a Master Business Coach and Strategist, Collette has helped business owners, leaders, and executives improve their company's operations leading to increased sustainability, agility, and profitability.

Her work hasn't gone unnoticed. She led her team at RED Development Group to win the 2022 Better Business Bureau Torch award beating out 70,000 Texas businesses. She's been inducted into the 2021 Career Mastered Women’s Leadership in Action class and under her leadership RED was a nominee for the 2021 Non-Profit & Corporate Citizenship Award alongside Pepsi and Wingstop. This nomination was well deserved as it celebrated how Portis and her team at RED Development Group worked to help businesses impacted by the pandemic rebound and build sustainability. Last year, she won the 2023 Entrepreneur of the Year award and her team was awarded a Minority Business of the Year award by the Fort Worth Rotary. Her work has created such an impact that the global publication, Influencer Digest, named her one of the top 15 Coaches in Fort Worth.

It is Collette's heart's desire to help business owners realize the full potential of their business, gain their freedom, and implement the steps to generational wealth and legacy. She has proven to be a champion for business owners globally.
