It was a great start to the new year as WashingtonExec hosted its seventh invitation-only government contracting executive happy hour in Tysons Corner last week, sponsored by the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). The networking event brought over 80 executives in federal contracting – to mingle and connect with new faces, past employees, previous bosses, lost connections, as well as current teaming partners and competitors.
“My Worcester Polytechnic Institute team and I were very pleased with the WashingtonExec networking event; it provided us with a unique opportunity to meet many wonderful industry leaders from the Metro Washington DC area in an enjoyable and relaxed environment,” said Don Gelosh, Director of Systems Engineering at WPI. “JD and his team of excellent professionals did an outstanding job.”
The mission of these events is to connect government contracting executives of consequence through targeted and trusted forums.
“I am always amazed to meet new and valuable contacts to enhance our business and client support at these WashingtonExec mixers,” said Dick Bodson, President of SUBSYSTEMs. “You may think it will be the same attendees, and somehow great business match making occurs – with new and returning business leaders. The same happened yesterday evening.”
Attendees included members of WashingtonExec‘s Mobility Council, Big Data Council, Leadership Council, MARCOM Committee, Federal Business Council and the newly-formed Strategic Human Capital and Critical-Talent Council. The goal of the Strategic Human Capital Council is to allow the VP of HR and one hand-selected high potential to build a peer network to expand their functional experience and challenge new ways of doing business.
