Andrew Clark led another non-profits panel discussion at Industrious for the Tysons Chamber. At the Courthouse location, he moderated the 2019 Charity to Change event. Erin Fuller, Tucker Wannamaker, and Sid Ghatak were on the panel in particular for their experience in charitable organizations.
Once the panelists were introduced the topic really took off. To illustrate the common challenges in working with their organizations, their comments seemed to resonate with the audience. Being that they all had similar experiences, they were receptive to suggestions, and strategies going forward. In short, this was another well-received event by Andrew. His series of bringing together nonprofits has connected leaders in these organizations. They do important work, but need each other’s support to be successful. I look forward to the next one!
The Tysons Chamber held the 2019 Bitcoin and Nonprofits event last week at Industrious. Given that this was my first time at this location, I found the room perfect for photos. For one thing, they had large windows across the exterior-facing walls. Additionally, the white ceilings reflected that natural light around the room. When the light hits the warm floors and mixed with warm added lighting, I really did not have to do much with the color.
In addition to the networking, a panel of technology leaders spoke about cryptocurrency and nonprofits. In general, all of these topics were not in my frame of reference. However, for the attendees that worked for or with nonprofits, I can see the value. In summary, there are advantages to using cryptocurrency for donations. Due to the emerging nature of this technology, rules are still fluid and need more discussion. Thanks to Andrew in particular for his work on this series!
Last month, I photographed Fairfax County: The Power of Place – an event produced by the Fairfax Couty Economic Development Authority. On this occasion, the venue was the beautiful Tower Club in Tysons. When you need to impress visitors to the area, this is the best location to put your best foot forward. To that end, the County was hosting visitors from an international convention in downtown DC. Meanwhile, speakers included representatives from businesses that have prospered in the area. Indeed, the setup of the conference room was perfect for photos. Though there was a strong light coming through the windows, they situated the speakers facing the light making good exposures easy to manage!
