Next Up DC

Alana Ramo

July 11, 2013

We partnered with BYBS for an evening of thought-provoking speakers at the Dunes in DC. Kate Jenkins, Alana Ramo and Alison Lea Sher, the ladies behind The Intentional and BYBS, selected 10 young, local up-and-comers who are working to leave their footprints on the District. These speakers gave TED-style, Pecha Kutcha-eque lightning talks that shared their passions, their experiences, and their perspectives. It was an incredible introduction of these bright voices to our community of friends in DC. Speakers competed for a cash prize, with the audience voting on the winner.

Big thanks to DJ Adrian Loving, MC Aaron Anderson, and The Dunes for hosting the event.
