Celebrating Our New HQ

by Maddie Glading
Leading Authorities DC Housewarming Party

Cheers to everyone who made it out last night for the official housewarming of our new offices in DC! Our client and speaking talent mingled for two hours over tacos and tequila touring our new digs and having a little fun in our new video studio.

Speaker faces you might recognize who helped us celebrate include the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, NBC News' Howard Fineman, election analysts Stu Rothenberg, Charlie Cook, and David Wasserman, futurist and author Shawn DuBravac, economist Doug Holtz-Eakin, global trends expert Evelyn Farkas, pollster Peter Hart, and more.

The Economist’s legendary cartoonist, Kevin “Kal” Kallaugher, also stopped by and helped us debut the incredible mural he created for our lobby!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and, for those of you who couldn’t make it, fill out the form below any time to arrange a visit to our new offices. We’d love to have you by for a tour of our new facilities and state of the art video studio!
