In an article in today’s Washington Business Journal entitled, “Some Pre-Mother’s Day Wisdom,” reporter Jennifer Nycz-Conner wrote, “If you ever have a chance to hear Cokie Roberts speak, take it.”
We couldn’t agree more! That’s why we are booked her at the Greater Washington Board of Trade (she’s pictured here with Board of Trade president Jim Dinegar) and are getting her into as many venues as possible. We’re so glad Jennifer liked her presentation, and wrote such a fab piece in the prestigious Back Page section of the paper.
“Roberts spoke to a group of 80 or so WBJ’s Women Who Mean Business alumna and guests of the Greater Washington Board of Trade last night at the House of Sweden,” Nycz-Conner wrote. “She was there to talk about her book, the 10th anniversary edition of “We Are Our Mother’s Daughters,” but topics flung as widely as the tale of her mother cooking for an intimate gathering of 1,500 guests at Roberts wedding reception to the secrets of successful marriages (her husband of 43 years, journalist and GWU Professor Steve Roberts, says the way to gauge a marriage’s success by “the number of teeth marks on your tongue”). The event was just a pleasant get-together all around – a beautiful venue, good food, great camaraderie and an insightful, down-to-earth, inspirational guest. A great way to spend a spring business evening.”
