We are a diverse community of advertisers and communicators. Some wear suits, some wear jeans. Some are creatives, some are geeks. Some talk boisterously over cocktails, some tinker quietly over spreadsheets. Some are seeking jobs, some creating them. Some are undiscovered, some up-and-coming, others the best in the world at what they do. All are passionate.
We work in a major global market. Yes, we do politics. Yes, we do government. We do it better than anyone. But we also have thousands of startups and hundreds of millions in venture capital. We have major international brands like Volkswagen, Marriott, Bethesda Games, Mars Corporation. We have great media companies like Discovery, Washington Post, National Geographic, Scripps. We have the largest concentration of non-profits in the world. Our work has incredible reach, our words have incredible weight.
We are better when we work together. When we exchange ideas and challenge the status quo. When we use our collective energies to bolster our vibrant industry. We can be competitors and collaborators simultaneously because a stronger DC benefits us all.
This blog is a resource for this community and the diversity of people that comprise it. We highlight new opportunities, share ideas, cheer our successes and lament our failures. We introduce you to the names and faces you should know in the DC market and tell their stories. We aggregate and curate exactly what you need to know to be better at what you do. And we champion are industry, making the case for our talent and keeping marketing and communications dollars local.
