About

Welcome to my site.

I’m Karla Williams. Like most of us there are many facets to my life. And I love them all. I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, executive, coach, connector, consultant, lover of challenges, and volunteer. I embrace life and rarely meet a person who I don’t find somewhat interesting.

Because I like challenges, I’ve done lots of things in my life. I’ve worked retail, worked for DOD as a contracting professional, sold Mary Kay Cosmetics, worked as Director of Contracts for a few small government contractors, co-owned a food business with my husband, published a local magazine for the women of the north shore of Chicago, owned a staffing business that supported various federal agencies, free-lanced as a consultant and proposal writer, taught acquisition regulations as a subcontractor supporting various government agencies, hosted hundreds of networking events, and now I serve as a BD executive for an international company.

I’ve loved each of these roles, some more than others and each for different reasons. But at my core I am connector, a doer, and a problem solver. I love sharing what I’ve learned with others and learning more about them and what they do and what they want to do in the future.

On this site, I talk about my passions, what I am planning and how I help business owners and causes that I care about.

I hope you’ll come to one of my events. I look forward to meeting you.

My Passions

I am co-chair of the Women in Business Committee of The Tower Club of Tyson’s Corner. We are a group of mostly women. Our members are either business owners, corporate executive, and some are both. We not only support each other professionally, we also hold fund raisers in March to celebrate Women’s History month, and in August we host the Queen of Hearts event in August.

The RFP Rumble is my newest passion. We had our first event in May and are planning monthly events going forward. In addition to networking from time to time we’ll have speakers on topics of interest to the GovCon community as well as new trends and technologies.

GovCon Salon is my latest brain child. It will be a combination of mastermind sessions, training, and individual and groups business coaching. Stay tuned – a soft launch is planned for 4th quarter of 2024.

My Goals – Business Growth

In addition to my passions, my day job is Vice President, Business Development, Citizen Services Group for Serco NA. My mission is top line growth.

I work with a great team that supports citizen facing governmental agencies. We help those agencies make the citizen experience less frustrating, and more satisfying by combining empathetic people who leverage technology for optimum results.

If you are a small or mid-size business that with past performance and skills and services that complements the services we offer, email me at karla.williams@serco-na.com.
