Please join DC Net Impact and the William James Foundation for an evening with Honest Tea. Led by Seth Goldman, "TeaEO" of Honest Tea, you will have the opportunity to hear from the Honest Tea leadership, sample Honest Tea’s newest drinks, and mingle with fellow Net Impact members and staff of the William James Foundation. Tea and refreshments will be provided.
This event is a fantastic opportunity to get an in-depth, behind-the-scenes view of one of the most exciting and innovative companies around. In an effort to ensure that attendees are able to have a full experience, we will be structuring the event like our speed networking event. After initial mingling and introductions, we will have senior staff from Honest Tea, Net Impact, and the William James Foundation stationed around the facility for smaller groups of attendees to engage in conversation.
This will allow our guests to hear several different perspectives on Honest Tea, engage the DC Net Impact leadership about the upcoming Net Impact conference in Baltimore (or any topic of your choosing), and learn more about the exciting ideas coming out of the William James Foundation. This is a great event that Honest Tea helps us host every year, and it's always a big hit. We hope you will be able to join us!
