If you appreciate a good lunch and you don’t mind learning while you lunch – especially when that lunch is Chick-fil-A (no brainer) – then FamousDC’s new luncheon series is the perfect way to spend your favorite time of day (after nap time, of course).
Last week, FamousDC successfully hosted its first panel discussion on Capitol Hill which featured some top notch public affairs executives who are not only pretty good at their jobs, but also really good at explaining why – and helping others who aspire to do the same.
FamousDC Managing Editor Kathryn Lyons moderated the conversation which comprised former Hill and Administration staffers. Andy Blocker of SIFMA, Noelle Clemente of S-3 Public Affairs, Tom Hoare of SAP and Jonathan Grella of U.S. Travel Association had some valuable advice for the packed room in the Rayburn House Office Building last Friday afternoon.
The panel discussion felt more like a conversation among old friends with topics that had the audience’s best interests in mind. From challenges they faced and overcame during the start of their careers, to what they now look for when considering and hiring young professionals, the panelists’ insight was packaged nicely with humor and personal anecdotes.
If you missed out this time around, be sure to follow FamousDC to stay updated on our next lunch and learn and to stay in the know on everything else we’re doing!
