Next-level Networking At The White House Correspondents' Dinner
We’ve all been to one of those networking events. You know, the ones where you get hijacked by some fake-it-til-you-make-it type, all too eager to engage in an American Psycho-style competition of the most impressive business card. You keep one eye on his blinding smile and the other on the lookout for a merciful tray of drinks to go sailing by. You’re secretly wishing you’d stayed home.
Well, this time you can leave the stick-on name tags and low expectations at the door — because this is not one of those events.
Just imagine (if you even can) the contacts you’ll make, the people you’ll meet, and the food you’ll eat at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
Yeah. THE WHITE HOUSE.
Why The White House Correspondents' Dinner?white-house-correspondents-dinner
Though President Trump has skipped the event the past few years (we’ll leave you to make your own judgement on whether that's a good thing), the roll-call of attendees is always impressive.
It’s seen performances by Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, and Ray Charles. Had hosts like Stephen Colbert, Jay Leno, and Conan O’Brien. It’s delivered more than its fair share of controversial speeches during which someone (usually the president) gets totally roasted.
To put it another way: the White House Correspondent's Dinner is a high-flying, fancy affair filled with exceptional names in the political and media space. It's entertaining. And it gives a whole new meaning to the concept of a booze and schmooze.
Don’t miss it.
