Young AFCEA Washington, DC is proud to host: Small Talk, Big Ideas - Nailing Your First Meeting with a Senior Executive 
Navigating a career path in government or industry can be challenging, particularly when someone is new to the government space. What is the most effective way to engage senior leaders to get results? Does engaging senior leaders mean that it is a sales pitch, a mentorship, or growing your network? These questions and more will spur the discussion across TWO panels of industry and government senior leaders.
